“… Our highly-skilled team thrives on mastering technical challenges whilst simultaneously pushing creative boundaries.”
RETAIL SPACE & BRAND EXPERIENCE
“A Brand’s story weaves a subtle mix of emotions, desires, expectations and aspirations.”
At Wubuki we develop strong concepts, firmly centred on brand narrative and consumer experience.
Through close collaboration with our clients we ensure their story resonates with consumers; staying consistent across every platform and touch-point.
Our retail solutions include:
· Concept stores
· Travel retail
· Pop ups
· Testing experiences
Retail spaces are at the front line of a brand’s physical expression and provide a clear, tangible experience for consumers. Through our honed retail design services, we integrate creativity with extensive technical experience to deliver delight and satisfaction for your consumers.
As retail specialists with expertise in impactful and intelligent solutions, we push the boundaries of in-store communication to provide our clients with a clear competitive advantage. With our multi-disciplinary approach, we design, innovate and transform, whilst respecting your core values and brand heritage.
PACKAGING & GIFTING
“We entice consumers to select your product, hold it in their hands and embrace it into their lives.”
From its shelf-presence to the out-of-box moment, packaging is the first tactile experience of your brand and product. Successful packaging has to work hard: communicating the brand, informing consumers and seducing your audience.
We entice consumers to select your product from the shelf, hold it in their hands and embrace it into their lives. We achieve this through a combination of:
· sculpted structural-packaging
· crafted and clear graphics
· clever material selection
· considered use of colour palettes.
We work with you to develop powerful product and brand experiences through strategic packaging design. Our strength is in understanding your brief, business and target markets. Through the focused analysis of socio-cultural-trends, shopper-missions and everyday unconscious behaviours, we deliver packaging solutions that people emotionally engage with.
Our brand strategy and product design capabilities create solutions for every stage of the packaging lifecycle. Whether it’s bespoke gifting experiences, fast-moving consumer goods or luxury flacons for perfumes and cosmetics; we’ve enabled both challengers and leaders to stand out from the crowd and build genuine consumer connections.
FURNITURE & LIGHTING
“We favour poetic designs, with narrative elements that contain whispers from forgotten dreams.”
At their core these utilitarian objects form the mise-en-scène of our lives, but how does their composition affect the stories played out upon this stage? We are fascinated with furniture and lighting’s ability to alter, not only the environment in which it is situated, but human behaviour too.
We favour poetic design, with narrative elements that contain whispers from forgotten dreams. Through the combination of forms, patterns, materials and processes we strive to divine new context and meaning. Our work celebrates simplicity of form, purity of line and the emotive nature of materials.
With no fixed ‘line’ our design process is dynamic and open. With an eye for detail and quality, we present elegant pieces that connect people with beautiful craft and engineering. Via close collaboration with manufacturers, artisans and makers we produce finely crafted pieces to enhance spaces and experiences.
Versatile in our scope and solutions, we’ve created:
· individual pieces for private residencies
· bespoke elements and fixtures for retail projects
· series of works for architectural firms
· families of public space furniture for large urban developments.
CONSUMER & INDUSTRIAL PRODUCTS
“Together we will make the future tangible.”
We craft beautiful products with meaning that transform brands into market leaders. From initial ‘strategy and concept design’, through to ‘design detailing for production’, every part of the design process is handled in-house.
Passionate about form, function and materials; we ensure your product’s success in the global marketplace. We pride ourselves on creating manufacture-ready designs and enjoy following projects through into production.
Developing products for both mass and small-scale production, our essential manufacturing experience ensures that your designs are not just desirable, they are feasible too. Our network of production partners and robust knowledge of manufacturing and assembly processes, supports the smooth running of your project.
Thriving on technical challenges, with a passion for developing new concepts and shaping visions, we design products that surpass user expectations. Whether creating new product categories or breathing life into established ones, we deliver market-ready solutions for single products, product lines and complete portfolios.
Let us tell your story, and together we will make the future tangible.
ANIMATION, VISUALISATION & SIMULATION
“A picture is worth a thousand words. Let us visualise your story!”
‘A picture is worth a thousand words’ … and your story deserves stunning visualisations.
By nature, visual information is immediately accessible and intuitive. It communicates a multitude of complex messages with precision and ‘wow’ factor. At Wubuki, we produce imagery that expresses and highlights the key features of your narrative.
We employ expertise in imagery, illustration and visualisation to create, explore and develop designs. From quick sketches to accurate 3D models and photo-realistic renderings, these visual tools guide, challenge and inform our design process.
Developing concepts with accurate materiality, scale, mechanics, physics and form; our visualisations and simulations offer an important communication platform. They allow us to clearly express, analyse and develop concepts in conjunction with our clients and partners.
Sculpting engineered solid-models with Class-A surfaces, not only enables our concepts to be accurately visualised through CGI, but also physically generated through CAM and rapid prototyping technologies. This pipeline enables our concepts to develop seamlessly from stunning imagery into manufacture-ready products.
To successfully deliver your message to the right audiences, we create stunning visuals that accurately bring designs to life. We deliver our imagery across a broad range of media including:
