Biggest takeaways from 2020

With reduced business and budget cuts, I think ‘less is more’ sums up perfectly the concepts and executions that happened in 2020. We have learned how to ideate and execute with limited means and this learning goes a long way to create a sustainable world. Also the

‘safety rst’ approach is going to go a long way.

We were anyway stepping into the experience age and the COVID scenario has created the need to ramp that up in the coming year. While online retail o ers convenience, o ine must focus on creating experiences to engage customers and generate more footprints and this is where the e orts around retail design must also be. Also, creating a safe environment for shoppers through e ective communication and strategies will become key attributes while designing retail spaces. Sustainability will also nd its strong

footprints as far as retail design is concerned in the coming year
