Ripley’s Believe It or Not!
Orlando, FL – Retail Store & Lobby
In 2010 while engaged as a consultant with Ripley Entertainment, I was tasked to provide services to develop and design a remodel of the entrance lobby and retail area. The scope of work included working with Ripley Entertainment management and developing the designs utilizing AutoCAD, SketchUp and Photoshop to produce all the documentation for the remodel. This included working with contractors on site to complete the work over a period of 4 weeks. In addition to modeling the environment, planning the color palette and store layout, drawings were produced to build the fixtures, point of purchase counter, risers for the exhibits and trim elements.
A New Environment
Design & Development
In addition to modeling the cashier area in 3D software, I produced the production drawings to produce all the cabinetry in AutoCAD. These sheets were then issued to the contracted vendor for fabrication.
Completed Retail Space
A look at the space before and after shows the extent of the changes. The result was a dramatic increase in sales and employee motivation with the new integration of fixtures, lighting and workspace.
