Zonez | Integrated Environments
We consider a ‘Zone’ as a place where the physical world and the digital world have merged. No matter if you want to tell your story in an exhibit, showcase your product in a showroom or make a sale in a retail environment – by creating consistent, inspiring and engaging experiences over all touchpoints you can create a series of effective experiences in the customer journey. Resulting in brand awareness, top of mind, brand engagement and ultimately in sales. Combining good business with good design.
