Looking to connect with loyal consumers and take the in-store experience to the next level, Ann Inc. contacted Monster XP to deliver an integrated digital presence at their Manhattan flagship store on Lexington Avenue. Working closely with the LOFT team to understand their goals, we installed eye-catching digital LCD walls and promotional signage in their storefront windows.
In addition, we provide around-the-clock remote system monitoring to ensure that all screens are always up-and-running properly. Monster XP also handles all updates and content scheduling.
The success from this first store installation has served as an evolving template for future installations at other LOFT flagship locations and other signature stores.
Vodafone used the busy holiday period to get consumers in the gift-giving spirit through a storefront initiative that let consumers take their picture, print a free gift tag and donate to charity.
We partnered with The Marketing Store to launch the interactive campaign at Vodafone’s flagship store on Oxford Street in downtown London. Passers-by were invited to snap a photo right on the busy street and customize their photo using six holiday-themed accessories from antlers to Santa hats.
Submitted photos were then transformed into gift tags that were printed and drove traffic inside where their tags where available for pick up. The campaign also encouraged shoppers to donate to Text Santa, an effort that aims to raise awareness and money for those most vulnerable during the festive period, powered by Vodafone’s Just Text Giving.
Madewell was seeking to mark the arrival of summer and warm-weather denim – white jeans, cut off shorts plus everything you’ll wanna wear with it – by creating a memorable window display for their signature Fifth Avenue store. Embodying that summer feeling, Color X, one of the leading providers of complete window displays, called on Monster XP to add digitally projected clouds to the artistic layers of textures they curated for this space.
Monster XP helped activate three outdoor storefronts in the New York market for Old Navy. These branded, interactive storefronts prompted New Yorkers and visitors to pose for the camera and make their own style statements.
Using Old Navy’s campaign illustrations, users were able to customize their style snapshot and channel their inner style. Users were then given the chance to get social and share their custom creation on their favorite social media channels.
