The different ways to use neon for visual merchandising
Neon has many uses, especially when in signage form. Neon signs can be used to create eye catching messages, both domestically and commercially, with many homeowners and business owners turning to neon to add visual appeal to their respective properties.
When it comes to visual merchandising, or VM for short, there’s a lot that can be done with neon. As A1deSIGNS are often commissioned to create signs for a variety of sectors, we thought we would look into the different ways neon can be used for VM.
Visual merchandising with Neon Signs
Traditionally, neon would have mainly been associated with sex shops and red-light districts in popular cities. These days, with its larger range of colours and unique look that comes from each piece of glass being hand bent, neon has become popular in both commercial and private settings.
Retail space is extremely important in any store. Providing it’s utilised properly, it can play a massive role in the success of a business, offering opportunities to engage with potential customers. The lighting used within visual merchandising can add value to any display, enhancing its overall look and helping to make sure products/services/offers are seen by those close by.
Whether you are looking to draw customers into your bar or shop, or you have a slogan you want to display in your restaurant, neon can be used effectively to catch the eye of passers-by or those inside.
Check out some of the recent examples of where neon signs have been used for visual merchandising purposes below, using a variety of techniques for different brands.
In this case study, the aim of the project was plain and simple; use the Levi’s slogan to create an eye catching sign that would be positioned in the store window.
