Target Video Game
I designed this product display in a course on retail fixture systems. I was asked to select a fixture that could be redesigned to better suit the customer’s needs.
I selected a Target video game gondola endcap due to my prior familiarity with the brand and many of its fixtures.

In the final product display, I split the large graphic, originally located on top, into two dynamically placed graphics with larger text and images. I also changed the header from "Nintendo" to read "Video Games" to expand flexibility.
The storage space below has been slightly reduced in favor of side storage areas with easy to access compartments. Worries of theft could be easily monitored with light sensor systems such as those in use at brands like ULTA Beauty.
This model was designed in Rhinoceros 3D and rendered in Keyshot 9.
