REBRANDING: RIGHT HERE!

BEHANCE 2019 Featured in: graphic design

The early 2000's saw a big rise in the number of shopping malls. They were popping all over Zagreb, especially in the western part of the city. After the expansion, came a period of consolidation – the merging of the successful ones and the gradual disappearance of those that didn’t manage to draw a sufficient number of customers.

FAR FROM THE CENTER OF ATTENTION

Right from the start Point was a specific shopping mall – versatile and multifunctional but secluded and primarily orientated toward the neighborhood of Vrbani. Low awareness, lack of knowledge about the mall’s location and its offer, as well as strong competition from the nearby City Center One in Jankomir resulted in less visitors and a lower number of leaseholders.

“I feel that Point is out of my way, it’s pretty complicated to reach if you’re not specifically going there.” — Mirjana, 55, Rudeš


“It’s not the type of mall we’re used to. It’s not as big as City or Arena.” — Marko, 25, Jarun

THINK GLOBALLY, POSITION YOURSELF LOCALLY

Faced with strong competition from big established shopping malls (CCO, Arena and Westgate), we decided to position Point as a local square – a space and a place for everyday meetups and smaller, more frequent shopping runs. By doing so, we utilized two of its biggest comparative advantages – the vicinity to potential consumers and the wide array of stores which makes it possible for people to get a lot of things done at one place.

WE PUT POINT ON THE MAP

The main goal of the rebranding and the campaign was to remind people of the location and let them know that, whether they want to do some serious shopping, have coffee with friends, pop into the post office or just go out for dinner, they can do it all – right here!

Where can I find gadgets and cosmetics? Where do I do my hair and my grocery shopping? Right here!
Where can I rendezvous with my friends? Right here!
Where is the closest store? Right here!
Where does the neighbourhood drink coffee? Right here!

Point well taken

Just a few months after the rebranding, the client called in to happily announce that the initial goal was accomplished - all the vacant retail space was leased out and contracts with new tenants have been successfully signed. This news was welcomed with great enthusiasm not only by us and the owners of Point shopping mall, but also by the ever-growing number of visitors who now enjoy a better selection of stores.

The change to the visual identity is a result of comprehensively researching the needs of the Vrbani residents. We see the introduction of new market trends as the best way of realising the demands of our visitors.

We had prepared two concepts for the presentation. After we presented the first one, Dino (the client) said: “As far as I’m concerned, we can stop here. I don’t even have to see the other one.” P.S. Note to other clients: be more like Dino.
