Window of opportunity 

In today’s modern, fast-paced world, retailers and brands are having to find new ways of connecting with and capturing the attention of consumers, who are mostly otherwise busy with their smartphone or other digital device.

One method that is proving increasingly popular among retailers is window graphics, which make use of often under-utilised surfaces to reach out to consumers and draw them into a store.

Take advantage
