Great Retail POS Production requires a clear mind

cutting-through-the-clutter-proprint-retail-POS-pre-production-post-

Most New Years resolutions fizzle out by now.
We decided to kick ours into gear today.

Working with a diverse range of retail brands requires us to accumulate allot of product. We use it to test our structural and creative designs.
But that product has really built up over time into something quite overwhelming.

We test our retail point of sale display designs with real product

Over time, the room where we keep these products has become more of a store room and less of a place of inspiration. Inspiration is what we’re aiming for this year.

If it’s one thing we know about, it’s how to make brands shine

The consensus was unanimous: It was time to roll up our sleeves and get to work proving it.

We removed all of the chocolate, cookies, pasta, gum and candies.
Then one by one. We put it all back.

Look at where we ended up.

Play With OREO

Twist, Lick and Dunk

OREO is a brand that we’ve been in love with for a long time. Longer than we’ve been in the retail display production business in fact. What kid isn’t?

Their new wonderfilled campaign is just terrific.

feat. Yelle (30 Second TV spot)

Oreo has unveiled its new ‘Play With Oreo’ campaign that centres on the concept of PLAY. Can you think of a better snack to play with?

It was created by The Martin Agency and features a catchy electronic soundtrack by French electro-pop band Yelle.

Check out the rest of the commercials here:

Detergent Packaging with tear off scoop

Here’s the scoop!


When it comes to designing responsible retail packaging, you have to consider the environmental impact and usability. It’s just the right way to do it.

Smart and Simple.


Designers Yang Guo, Qiaoge Yang & Wenju Wu considered the contents and came up with a design that has really inspired some thinking here in the Proprint Creative Studio today.
I’m not entirely certain that consumers would forfeit their plastic scoops over night in favour of this design. But I do believe that there is a segment of the market that would consider trying it.

Is this the future of packaging?


Contained utensils in the packaging is so in step the packaging trends that we have observed and set. I wonder what other versions of this philosophy will show up on the shelves.

Retail Point of Sale display – Back to School Locker

Mondelēz International takes us to school

They say that the magic is in the details.
The team behind the Proprint Creative Engine believe in this firmly. So does Mondelēz apparently.
While branding and structural design are certainly very important, every now and then a project comes along that changes the game.

back-to-school-locker-retail-display

I wouldn’t describe this bilingual locker bookcase display as “designed”. This was thoughtfully “Illustrated”.


Mondelēz tells stories with their brands. They draw you in and make you take notice.

Isn’t that what great Retail P.O.S. is supposed to do anyway?

*Mylar locker mirror – love it.

Branding is fun. Painting brands over functional retail structures – that’s even better.

Look at some of these nice touches, like the iPod earbuds threading through the vents. This was a love letter to the back to school season.
