Experience & ‘POP with Purpose’ Winning with Shoppers

Last Thursday 31st March 2022, the winners of the 2021 Shop! Australia and New Zealand Retail Marketing Awards were announced at the annual Gala Awards Dinner at Doltone House, Jones Bay Wharf, Darling Harbour.

Id8 Studio’s designs were awarded trophies in 2 highly contested categories for Sony’s first in market ‘Truly Wireless’ earphones display and Brown-Forman’s latest ready-to-drink ‘Part Time Rangers’ POS suite.

Experience and “reasons to shop” were high on shopper’s agendas after two years of pandemic restrictions. Our winning activations certainly fitted the Covid-shopper brief; both highly engaging, with strong purpose and unique experiential features.
