During the segment, Kathy Ireland interviewed Debbie Kalisky, Director of Retail Business Development, and Paola Marques, Principal of GH+A Design.
Debbie Kalisky discussed some of the challenges that design firms have today due to technology globalization in the marketplace. She said, “Designing stores used to be about designing a beautiful space. Today, with the convergence of globalization and technology, the whole game has been shifted to deliver an experience that is much more about doing something that is unique. Not just about the four walls, the floor, and the ceiling, but giving them something where they have access to other information online and seeing that same experience of what they have online in their store.”
Paola Marques discussed how they help landlords and retailers overcome these challenges. She said, “It’s interesting because it forces us to create customized strategies for them and that’s the key. It’s about customizing a strategy that’s going to develop concepts and retail spaces that engage customers and relate to their customer core, their target market, and for landlords to relate to their demographics. It’s about creating something that is individual and not a cookie-cut or formula approach. And that’s really what is going to drive traffic to the stores and to the shopping centers today.”
