Trade Show Exhibiting: Lounging in Cappuccino and Hot Pink!

Posted by sarmistha tarafder on Jan 6, 2012 4:52:00 PM

Lounges have now gained tremendous momentum in the design of trade show exhibit spaces and special events. Dedicated sitting spaces are now integral part of design directives. These areas are resolute in providing a communicative approach to information exchange and information gathering. In today's era of viral marketing and virtual interacting, it is a featured highlight of face to face marketing. When 46% of executive decision makers make purchase decisions while attending a show and 51% of executive decision maker requested that a sales representative visit their company after the show and get this: 95% of the executive decision makers meet with their current suppliers at a trade show it is only makes sense to promote the right kind of atmospheric conditions that fosters such conversation. And a lounge does exactly that. It is a luxurious conclave where talent meets target.

Art of the Season: In the Flow of Flower and Flakes.

Posted by sarmistha tarafder on Dec 15, 2011 10:49:00 AM


It is a fierce, foamy world of 'what ifs', 'what can be' and 'what might be' that we live in. I say fierce, because competition to stand out and stay ahead was never this acute in the written history of mankind. I say foamy, because never before we were aware of our own potential. We are immersed in the froth of promises and possibilities that constantly appear each moment, only to disappear the very next moment. We experience magic in every single breath. We indulge in the process of continuous creativity consciously and sub-consciously. We are on an enhanced evolutionary path. This means mankind as a whole is rigorously pursing the 80-20 rule. [Eradicate 80% of things that yield only 20% of the value in any undertaking. Then re-direct and refocus the freed up resources to leverage radical levels of change.] Nature does it. A single snowflake holds wisdom of the eternity.

Posted by sarmistha tarafder on Nov 22, 2011 6:50:00 PM

Commanding over 10 million Twitter followers and over 33 million Facebook fans, Lady Gaga, is also the creative tour-de-force and a key player of the Polaroid team. Her fame is sensational. She gracefully glides between the worlds of technology, music, artistry and marketing. She is the fearless, daring marketing scientist that we all applaud and strive for!
As [trade show] marketers, we are constantly working to leave behind a blazing trail in a crowded industry. Lady Gaga was trying to do the same thing in the over-crowded music industry. Gaga won where others lost.

Trade Show Display Stand: "Think Different"

Posted by sarmistha tarafder on Oct 10, 2011 5:40:00 PM


"Steve was among the greatest of American innovators – brave enough to think differently, bold enough to believe he could change the world, and talented enough to do it." President Barack Obama, 2011

At EuroShop 2011, Strohbach & Krey Messebau Design GmbH & Co. KG was bold enough to execute the maxim "Think Different". It transforms the exhibiting space into a sand-covered beach. It even goes a step further. The space gives you the illusion of walking down right into the beach. The built-up pier being the corner stone of the exhibit design is very cleverly scaled. You walk on it and disappear into the large graphic wall mural: a magical union of the 2 dimensions. The running clips of the waves lapping at the beach makes a keen appeal to your limbic system. You are transported.

"Think Different" was the new campaign that was the turning point for Apple. It gave the brand much needed vigor and destined Steve Jobs with a cult-like euphoric followers. All because he designed different, so different that he altered our behavior. He propelled the human race forward.

Thank you Steve Jobs. You were a phenomenon.
Thank you Craig Tanimoto. You were the much needed vitality for the weary brand.

"Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes.
The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them.

About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They invent. They imagine. They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire. They push the human race forward.
Maybe they have to be crazy.
How else can you stare at an empty canvas and see a work of art? Or sit in silence and hear a song that’s never been written? Or gaze at a red planet and see a laboratory on wheels?
We make tools for these kinds of people.

Trade Booth Design Trends: A Walk in the Bizarre

Posted by sarmistha tarafder on Dec 11, 2010 3:00:00 PM


The term bi•zarre |biˈzär| means odd, eccentric and strikingly out of the ordinary. The bizzare is the construct of our creative, nonconformist right brain. It is absolutely absurd, crazy, nonsensical, preposterous. It is unreal. It is wild. It is fanciful. It is the bizzare that creates movements and sets trends. An example is The Dada (movement or more of a non-movement) that began in Zurich in reponse to the insane killings of World War I. The movement was spearheaded by people walking in the bizzare.  Artists, poets, writers, intellectuals all concerted their efforts on anti-war politics by denouncing the prevailing standards in art through anti-art cultural works. Their purpose was to taunt what they considered to be the nonsensical nationalism, rationalism, materialism and any other -ism which they felt had contributed to a senseless war. An example of the outrageous Dada art is the painting of Mona Lisa with a mustache by Marcel Duchamp.
