Oh my, I think this week has gone by just a tad too quickly! I’ve got a few important market to-do’s to check off my list before the weekend and I still have Mother’s Day to think about, not to mention little ones to cuddle, a house to clean and cupboards to fill with at least a few groceries…busy days! But, like all good procrastinators, I have found squeezed in some quality time on Pinterest and while looking through my boards the other day, I couldn’t help but notice that rafters and beams seem to be a key architectural feature in many of my favourite spaces….
Finally, A whole new shopping experience for people do grocery with ease. Tesco’s ingenious online shopping strategy had just got even better. Tesco Home Plus designed an augmented shopping catalog inside the train stations of South Korea. These virtual catalogs stood before the train entrance so that people could initially see Tesco products that are available for shopping.

The only requirement in able for shoppers to use the virtual catalog service and successfully purchase via their phone is that their phones must have a wireless connection available so that the phone could connect to the net and sync their order with their online account. A QR Code scanner is also required because every item displayed on the virtual catalog has a QR Code printed beside it so that user can take pictures or QR Scan them and initiate a purchase.
Here is a of the snapshots of the Tesco Virtual Catalog.
And if you want see how this QR-shopping is done, then here is a link of a video demo of Tesco’s Virtual Catalog.

After the purchase verification process is completed, users can choose a time window displayed in a form of a table.

Fortunately, there is not less art in modern food advertising as biology and marketing. To be efficient, advertising, whether it is a TV trailer, restaurant logo, or a menu decoration, should work in a very sophisticated way. By stimulating visual receptors of a potential customer (this is the art component in advertising), it should affect his basic instincts and form irresistible desire (this is where commerce starts) to drop into a supermarket for a new type of organic ham or rush into the nearby restaurant and satisfy his instincts with the extra portion of taco. Not to be accused in advocating emotional eating :-), let us publish here some examples of food advertising concepts, where art component is strong enough to overwhelm (at least for some time) the basic instincts and let one enjoy the aesthetic value of advertising itself before tasting the culinary values of the advertised product.

In 2011 Reynolds and Reyner finished two huge projects redesigning international brands of paints. After that they were asked to develop a new visual identity for a small Finnish company which was planning to enter the U.S. market. Without the past, unlike the majority of existing brands in the segment, but believing in the future, the key to access the market was a package design. “We don’t just need – we must! stand out” – this phrase has become the basis at work on a new brand identity.
No doubt, WTP is the most friendly and remarkable brand of paints on the shelf now. WTP has no corporate colors – it have the corporate identity, common for each design element – from business cards to packaging. Every item is bright and memorable combination of colors and objects that all together form whole the entire brand. The next step is to prove that the product is as high quality as its outer shell. But this is another story.
