As one of the leading textile retailers in Germany, Austria and Luxembourg and with more than 60 years of tradition and a high level of customer loyalty. Adler is, in its own estimation, the market leader among textile retailers for customers over 45 years in the value price segment. The products are distributed via a broad network of currently more than 166 stores as well as an online store.
The retailer started a programme of new store openings and delivered a new format at Limburg, which, although proving successful, required time and capital to implement. Adler was faced with a challenge. The company required a cost neutral design solution to apply to their existing stores and to achieve a transformation in their brand communications effectively, speedily and with a neutral or limited capital expense.
What we did for Adler fashion retail shops.
After winning a competitive paid pitch to develop a new in-store shopping experience, we set about creating a graphic communication hierarchy to refresh the brand image of their stores. In so doing, all areas of the store came under review, including sub-brands, visual merchandising displays, fixture systems, lighting, and the customer navigation.
The solution for brand equity success.
Part of the brief was also to evolve the strapline proposition, which went from ‘I Like This’ to ‘Your Fashion Store’ – a proposition that had greater resonance with its customer base. Throughout the store, the quality of service was reinforced through the use of targeted graphic communication.
Also developed was the ‘Pretty in Pink’ proposition whereby the pink from the Adler logo was leveraged throughout the store – thereby enabling Adler to wholly own the colour in the marketplace.
Physical design elements were also developed, such as points of interest around the store, inspirational beacons, and brand ‘touch-points’ at the windows, lobby and entrance and customer service areas.
