This Week’s Random Retail Sights

While surveying stores for a client we snapped few photos of things that caught our eye the other day. First off the color blue is picking up in Spring where it left off in winter. The Nordstrom windows we saw were a great homage to the color and got us at least dreaming of warmer weather, even if Mother Nature is not cooperating.

...if only this translated to warmer temperatures outside. We're ready for Spring.

Passing by J. Jill we were smitten by their exterior store branding; specifically we love the simplicity of their logo. The repetitious shapes and OCD-like attention to detail is fantastic. Graphic design at its best if you ask us.

J. Jill logo is a study in simplicity, repetition and composition.

Lastly we can’t help ourselves but linger in the Apple Store and take in all the clean lined products. Of particular interest to this author was the Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth Speaker. It’s an extraordinary example of industrial design that oozes simplicity and quality. Put your hand on it and you can feel the bass. Lift it up and it has a good heft to it. Call us stodgy or boring, but in a world filled with common, jelly bean bluetooth speakers we’ll gladly take this little Bose speaker with us on the go or in the office.

Bose SoundLink Mini Bluetooth portable speaker is a real subtle gem. We love the clean lines, textures and heft of the unit.

We were also enamored to a certain extent by the Bose SoundTouch Portable speaker as well. Of all things the remote was pretty nifty too.
