Shikatani Lacroix Design provides retail organizations with complete solutions to the unique branding and design challenges as they pertain to creating strong brand loyalty and differentiation, and we have delivered on some of the most complex brand initiatives for Hudson Bay Company (Home Outfitters), M&M Food Market, The Source, Higher Ground, Petro-Canada, Calgary Co-op, Federated Co-op C-Stores, and Adidas, to name just a few.

We work in just about every retail design discipline, and whether the project focuses on shifting brand perceptions, cohesive brand implementation, employee branding or consistent brand messaging at the core customer touchpoints (branded environments, corporate or digital), everything we do is geared to owning the “at-purchase” moment, that split second when an individual decides on what store they will shop.

Our strategic design work has delivered clients with creative, original, and strategic (therefore lasting) design and branding, and our ThinkBlink™ process is founded on a collaborative and inclusive client engagement principle, and it adapts to meet the criteria of even the most complex projects and drives to unite organizations under their core values, turning branded environments into brand powerhouses.
