With 4 weeks to go until the launch of our next pop-up, I wanted to turn the attention to the events calendar we’ve put in place, an exciting new addition to Look Like Love. It seems like a pop-up, well, pops up every week in London, and with Clerkenwell Design Week happening a stones throw away, we wanted to present a pop-up+ so an opportunity to meet the designers taking part, working in the space, creating their one-off and limited editions live in store. We wanted to showcase their work, as well as their story and unique point of view as an emerging talent jostling for position in an ever-competitive creative industry.
Sitting alongside these fresh faces, we have invited creatives with over 20 years industry experience to talk about their approach and how they have made their mark on the creative landscape, as well as offering guidance and advice to the next generation.
On Wednesday 20th May, creative director Philip Handford of London-based agency Campaign Design, will talk about the Future of Retail Design and how the experiential elements of design are carving out a new shopping experience for consumers.
Philip has worked for some of the most successful global design agencies, including Imagination and Universal Design Studio before setting-up Campaign, securing Burberry as his first client.
The last five years have seen the agency grow with clients including 3.1 Philip Lim, Dunhill and Selfridges to name a few, with each having a unique point of view, there is definitely no ‘house style’ when you look at the portfolio of projects on Campaign’s website.
With The Fragrance Lab taking over the entire corner of Selfridges late last year, and the first time customers could walk through the window, it was a unique sensory experiential journey to create a bespoke fragrance, the ultimate personal service without a pushy spraying sale assistant in sight.
This approach to retail design that envelopes the customer gives an interesting insight into consumer behaviours, something that Philip continues to explore at varying levels depending on the client and environment.
Come and meet Philip on Wednesday 20th May from 2-3pm as he talks about his approach and point of view when it comes to design that engages all the senses.
Spaces are limited, so book your free ticket here.
