Throughout the holiday season, this iconic national retail bank rolled out their holiday campaign implemented in select flagship stores across the US. ALU’s team was challenged by the bank to create a custom and contemporary spin on the holidays. The displays ALU’s design team came up with consisted of large, open, floor standing display cases, each filled with sheets of clear acrylic with two dimensional graphics applied to them, which layered together to create a three dimensional effect. These objects featured stylized emblems of the holidays from Christmas trees and snowmen to gift wrap inspired panels – all set in holiday colors.
