NEW ORLEANS, LA (November 29, 2018) — Synergy Design Group proudly announces selection as a finalist in EXHIBITOR Magazine’s 2019 Portable Modular Awards (PMAs). The annual competition recognizes outstanding exhibit designs “based on their aesthetics, functionality and innovation” (Exhibitor Media Group, 2018). This year, EXHIBITOR nominated TWO of Synergy Design Group’s booths for clients Warped Cigars and Ocean Infinity to compete in categories Best Island Exhibit Less Than 600 Square Feet and Best 10-by-10 Foot Exhibit, respectively. A panel of experts will decide the winners of each category. However, the public may vote online once daily until February 25, 2019, to select the People’s Choice design. The trade show and events magazine will present the winners at EXHIBITORLIVE 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

 

WARPED

EXHIBITOR nominated Synergy Design Group’s hybrid display design for client Warped Cigars as a finalist in the Best Island Exhibit Less Than 600 Square Feet category. The booth debuted at the 2018 International Premium Cigar and Pipe Retailers Annual Convention in Las Vegas, Nevada. In order to showcase Warped’s unique brand, Synergy designed a custom island display. For instance, a 16-foot gloss laminate tower connected to an accent beam, enclosing a VIP lounge area for individual access to Warped’s mastermind, Kyle Gellis. Two custom perimeter lightbox showcases and minimal structure reflected the cigar company’s “Exclusively Different” brand. Additionally, guest-centric details like plush carpet and hospitality counter delighted IPCPR attendees. According to Gellis, the booth was “[…] the best one we’ve done to date.”

OCEAN INFINITY

Synergy Design Group’s booth designed for client Ocean Infinity at the 2018 Sea-Air-Space Exposition in National Harbor, Maryland will compete as a finalist in the PMA’s Best 10-by-10 Foot Exhibit category. Inspired by the company’s brand and icon, the display design embodied a modern interpretation of the ocean’s flow. For example, a curved gloss wall and custom, contoured front counter with integrated tablet. In addition, dimensional tagline, custom graphic flooring and halo-lit signage enhanced the concept of tying technology into an organic environment.

Custom Retail Display Cigar Humidor for Habana Port Cigars

OLD WORLD MEETS NEW

Our client, Habana Port Cigars needed a custom retail display for their location at the New Orleans Riverwalk. The father and son duo behind Habana Port were a lot of fun to work with. The challenge: one loves traditional elements while the other loves a more modern look. Therefore, we developed a custom solution to combine the essence of both with their brand.

In order to appeal to the old-world taste and for cigar storage function, we used cedar to create the custom, wall-sized humidor and added leather pulls for a distinct feel. White quartz countertops, white acrylic 3D product names, and clean and bright LED side panels define the contemporary feel. In addition, the LED panels illuminated product in an elegant way.

Functional elements include hidden vents for the display to work as a huge wall humidor. The custom solution also has accessible storage on the cabinetry behind the top signage. The central pylon vertical retail screen and custom shaped signage tied together the modern materials and traditional finishes to create a professional and functional presentation. Although our client moved from the Outlet Collection Riverwalk Mall in 2018, this project remains one of our favorites.

The impressive details make this custom humidor retail display unique. Our client was pleased with the cohesive blend of old and new worlds that perfectly exudes Habana Port Cigars.
