Wall Brick And Stone Panels Help TV Set Designs And Retail Stores Designs.

Posted on December 27, 2017

We are often approached by designers who have spent countless time trying to create a backdrop for a retail store or TV talk show set that incorporates a brick or stone accent. They confess to us that it would have been much easier to install brick or stone panels instead of trying to use real brick and stone, or even worse, trying to faux paint that look.
One of the challenges in our market is to let store outfitters, display booth designers, and many others know that faux stone and brick panels exist. Once they find out they usually incorporate them in the design and drastically reduce the time it takes to design and build a project.

Stages look incredibly better with stage lighting pointing directly to the stone panels from above. You can't create the same feel by using wallpaper or faux painted bricks.

Selling the panels is for us just part of our focus. We focus on helping broadcast professionals and trade show booth designers in creating outstanding designs that meet the needed time frame and budgets.

We can create custom products, panels with different sizes and textures as well as custom colors.

If you are in the trade show business you have probably seen how long it takes to install reals stone and real brick and how long it takes to take the booth down. All that work is also employed for just one show.

When using panels you can install the booth in hours but most of all, your clients can reuse the panels. All you need to install them is either use screws or even velcro. All of the materials can be reused many times, with a considerable saving.

Stores and booths should be designed to get the customer's attention, not just create a place to hang your products. Spending a few extra dollars per square foot provides an incredible ROI for the designers and the final client.

Art is a reflection of human nature. It shows us the ideas and emotions of the artist or designer which also reflects the characteristics of their generation. Each color and each presentation is aimed at evoking an emotional response. Art expresses the unique perceptions of the artist. The goal and the process of artistic design are all about using creative methods to create beautiful or dark styles that the artist wants to represent in their work.

Emotional responses are controlled by the method and medium the artist chooses to use. This is why choosing new and exciting mediums is very important when it comes to making a great impression with a fresh perspective.

Designers have to understand how to manipulate emotion and function to create an effective style. Good designers can recreate the different themes or styles that the clients require. Great designers know how to create their own brand by using new and effective ways of making each project speak volumes.
