Project Brief

The brief was to create a retail and POS experience that would attract a cross-section of buyers from young families looking for space to retirees looking to maintain an active lifestyle.

Project Innovation/Need

We embraced the uniqueness and natural aspects of the land whilst remaining focused on the future features and benefits of Montego Hills to deliver a retail experience that generated extraordinary interest from an untested market.

Design Challenge

The POS experience was a key challenge as we decided to utilise an existing hay storage shed as the project sales office. It was positioned perfectly but significant work was required to ensure it was not only functional and attractive but would be safe and accessible to all visitors.


The launch day for Montego Hills was very successful and we continue to receive tremendous positive feedback from our client and visitors to the sales office.

Initial enquiries led to strong sales results and our ongoing retail and marketing engagement activities have ensured the project continues to exceed our client's sales targets.

This award celebrates creative and innovative design for visual communications and display including traditional and digital signage and three dimensional displays intended to persuade an audience to purchase or take some action upon products, ideas or services. Consideration given to the technical, conceptual and aesthetic elements, audience engagement and message delivery.
