  2. 2. I like how the health lottery P.O.S is mainly blue which gives a relation to the NHS and health. The Jeff Banks P.O.S is more functional by providing every product ready to get from there but it has too many products for sale. The Lacoste P.O.S is very nice because it has a clear clinical look with simplicity, it gives you one product available in many colours so it makes buying that item more fun because you can pick any colour you desire. The Coca-Cola P.O.S is good because it offers all chilled drinks, the best drinks will be at eye level like Coca-Cola and the others will be distributed around, the only problem of this is that there is too much choice.POINT OF SALE RESEARCH
  3. 3. The newspaper P.O.S is good because it offers all newspapers, its basic and can always be used for different papers because you simple slip out the title banner in which the title of the paper is placed. The Dove men care P.O.S is not that good because it has too much selection from the customer and they will end up not buying their products, also their P.O.S is very basic cardboard cut out and so its not very professional but rather easy to put-up. Rolex is a good P.O.S because it clearly displays its products, the only negative is that it cannot be handled because it is a valuable product it would be a target for thieves. Superdrys P.O.S is good because like the Lacoste point of sale it is simple clinical and clear. The products are there to look at touch try on and so it offers a good range of products.POINT OF SALE RESEARCH
  4. 4. HACKETT I think Hacketts user is a male of his 20s, the male would go to watch rugby, horse racing like the grand national and/or Ascot. This product would be excellent for the male because it shows and gives a sense of British class, from tradition from the 1960s suit wearer even to now in which it gives the sense of a business style but in the best possible way, almost like a style of swarve for the upper-class gentleman.MY CHOSEN BRAND

  12. 12. The Hugo boss unit at Harrods was notspecial in anyway to the others, it wasdifficult to find and that the only difference isthe background photograph[h and the bottlesitself, they have a bright light to display andso that can draw the customers in. the pointof sale unit displayed all bottles that HugoBoss has to offer but there was too muchselection for one customer I think it wouldhave had to have been limited.The Hugo boss p.o.s is good because it givesyou something to hold such as the bag, it keepsthe customer there and so its successful, also itcovers the testing bottles so that is a downside.It simplistic and so its easy to look at andinteract with and so it is a good P.O.S. The newly released 007 fragrance is the highlight of Harrods at the moment and When testing mens fragrances the potential customers so it heavily influences the fragrances approach the point of sale unit. department together with adverts point of Firstly they look at all the products on sale for the P.O.S sale units and promotions in the brand, once they have found a product they are familiar windows, its good because 007 is well with they pick up the bottle, spend a few seconds at it and known through the world and so anyone then they proceed to test the fragrance on left and right who glances at the unit knows instantly hands, then they shake their hands for the scent to settle in what its related to. and then show their family and friends their wrist, the bottle, then they show the products at the point of sale unit. Then and only then did they request the price of the bottle because the point of sale did not contain any information about the pricing of the product. There was staff always around giving information on all products and so I conducted my research at Harrods luxury outlet store, Harvey Nichols and many upper class stores in Londons Canary Wharf.PERSON AND PRODUCT INTERACTION
  13. 13. While doing my research I stayed around in Harrods and Hackett, Hugo Boss and other shops looking at how many people approached the point of sale units, what they did and their age and style. Firstly while in Harrods I watched a male in his late 20s in business attire approach the Hugo Boss stand, he had a talk with the assistant who explained all of the fragrances and discussed his favourite and why. The male then asked to try the scent in which the staff behind the counter readied a testing strip and then Most of the people who walked past the point of sale just gave a glance sprayed the point of sale bottle onto the strip, they then and nothi9ngg more, occasionally they would stand for as few seconds proceeded to wave the strip around and then handed it almost analysing what the products are for sale but the bright light to the customer, the male them viewed his opinion and showing all the products really draw them in. to me the bright light and then done the same with another bottle. the background photograph drew me in and so I enjoyed looking at the environment the scent could be used in. the staff behind the counter knew Out of the ten minutes I was viewing only around 3 all about the fragrances and so they could give me all the vital people approached the male fragrances I would information. associate to be near Hacketts target market and age range, all whom looked to be returning from work. 0-3 minutes- 3 persons walked past the unit glancing and one male did Out of all the males who approached the product most stop and test the fragrance and showed interest to his friends, didn’t buy put their hands on the product and went through the the products then left the stand to have a look at the 007 fragrance.. same process. 4-7 minutes- up to ten people walked past this unit only merely glancing while talking to friends, one male on his own did look test and though about purchasing one of the products and then looked around at diesel products and then also went to the 007 stand. 8-10 minutes- no none stood at the unit and some glances were drawn but it seems the promote devices of the 007 fragrance had taken away potential customers, so I found out that if other products are promoted well enough they will gain a reputation and v ads as well as ones in the street. That they will draw the market to them thus cornering the market from all other products.10 MINUITE OBSERVATION
  14. 14. While looking at male fragrances I looked at the environment surrounding them. InHacketts Canary Wharf store the environment was their clothing and the style of thestore was of traditional British feel, old chairs and polished wood was used for most ofthe store, it gave the feel of real class as well as wealth.Looking in boots shops the environment of the mens fragrances was that they were allplaced together. There was nothing special about them behind glass cabinets other thena few selected lines which took up floor space in which the potential customer wouldhave to walk past them in order to see the rest so it has the angle of being first. So theHugo Boss stall was one of these which displayed a bag which claimed that if youbought a big enough bottle of the fragrance you would receive the bag for free. Thisangle bought many males to the bag rather then the bottle as it was more interesting atfirst glance. They would play around looking at the bag for a couple of minutes beforethen looking at the bottle which to me is a successful way in keeping the potentialcustomer there.When I went to Harrods there was nothing special about any of the sale points for malefragrances, they were all light up brightly and that they contained one backgroundpicture of where their best fragrance could be used which to me I found was a little bittoo repetitive in the store. I had to ask a member of staff to help me find certainfragrances and that you could never easily distinguish the fragrances while walkingaround at a glance.What Harrods did have however was a large promotion of the new 007 fragrancewhich was placed in the window area with a vehicle and many devices used andassociated with the 007 feel, this to me was outlandish and was very large promotionjust for a bottle of male fragrance.ENVIRONMENTAL SNAPSHOT
  15. 15. Diesel is also another competitive product because it is targeted at the same age range and style as well as pricing as its cheaper then HugoFor competitive products I chose Hugo Boss and Diesel as they Boss. It focuses heavily on being casual but its different again fromboth have a similar age range and that they combine business and Hackett as Hackett is all about being totally British and of style, brandspleasure. Hugo Boss Is good because their male fragrance is like diesel can be for most occasions because its not held down by onequite popular, they are a well known brand and their primary sale style, the style of a traditional British gentleman and so that’s whyis of business wear such as suits attire. Hackett has competition, because it is not expanding its horizons.Hugo Boss’ pricing however is not similar as the bottles are more I found that diesel had the market of younger males who have a busyexpensive by 20 pounds sterling. They offer a wider range of lifestyle which also brings in the need to look good even as the bottlesituations to Hacketts fragrance of what to do and where to go shows, while looking I saw young males in their 20s looking at the unitbecause it has daytime bottles, night-time bottles and also sport and even purchasing the product not even caring of Hugo boss or evenbottles. This is why Hugo Boss could be taking away Hacketts Hackett, this shows me that the lifestyle portrayed from dieselssales. Boss is a TNC a trans national company operating all advertising campaign has proven successful in the long run.around the world they are well known through out and their As I stated in all competitive products it is the advertising that letsadvertising is on the television, posters and units in shops Hackett down, if they are to reach out more they will need to proveeverywhere, they get their word out to the public and they do it themselves with more advertising.well, advertising could be one of the major factors Hackett ismissing out on as they do not have any advertising campaigns inpublic for example around the underground in London or on thehigh-street. Their brand also is well known and they really dohave a say in the market because they are so well known. Alfred Dunhill is also another competitive product against Hackett, other then Dunhill actually buying into Hackett their fragrances also crave their way into the market against Hackett when they are also a business and casual wear brand also about British clothing so this is a very close match to Hackett. They have more then one fragrance and have womens fragrances as well. This means they are already one up on Hackett but they lack what Hackett lacks, standard public advertising, Alfred Dunhill has no advertising so like Hackett they may be a quiet brand which not many people know about only jus the people who are really in the loop. They also aim themselves at middle aged people to slightly younger depending on the persons taste but they are also male and female and do not have a childrens line for attire so they could be just beneath Hackett London.COMPETITIVE PRODUCTS
  16. 16. When I went to London and done my research I found that big brands such as Hugo Boss, Diesel Alfred Dunhill etc. are the main players in the fragrance market and so they show off their business side being professional and also they have their casual side which means they really do appeal to the young mans market in which he will have casual times and also times to be smart so why not go for that type of fragrance which appeals to both side. Another strong point Hugo boss is that they are Hackett has many different styles about it, in which it is of traditional British known worldwide as Hackett is not known as much so people will generally go for the brands that gentleman but also casual. Its style is hard to make wider available because it is they will know so Hackett needs to be able to sell their fragrance and tell their history at the same only aimed at a small situation of business of very different casual wear. On the time in order to successfully sell their product, that’s what I think. other hand the fragrance is different because the fragrance can be used as widely a wanted no matter what you are wearing, where you are going or who you are with It gives the sense of a traditional British smell and gives the essence of a nice scen no matter what you look like in terms of attire. However there is other parts of the brand you have to think of though because it is all about the traditional gentleman, its not for young males but it can go all the wa up to the older gentleman. You need to be in the older style of clothing in order to popularity shop there because otherwise it will just not be your style if you do not want to be almost an elite smart. To me Hackett needs to be smart and casual at the same time so their point of sale unit needs to be friendly but also dead smart too, this will be a good task of its ow as it can be the fun of the fragrance but also the precision and the materials of the point of sale unit.costMARKET RESEARCH
  17. 17. MOOD BOARD
  18. 18. HACKETT started out from being a small stall selling traditional used Mens clothes on Portobello road. This was theyear of 1979.By 1983 they had a thriving business and so they opened their first store under the name HACKETT at the ‘wrong end’of new kings road, they only sold the finest quality second hand British clothing and accessories. From this they grewconsiderable interest from ‘young fogeydom’.By 1985 they were selling new mens clothing on their own line with their vast knowledge of male clothing and so it gavea new traditional style of men’s clothing to the market.1986 they were opening more stores based on specialities for each, tailoring , shirts and ties and a gentlemans accessoryshop. They were on the way up!In 1989 HACKETT received lots of interest from Europeans and so they branched out to Spain in which they were verysuccessful.In 1992 Alfred Dunhill buys shares in Hackett in which they opened their flagship store on Sloane street in the October.Through the years Hackett is involved in many sports such as motor racing and horse racing as well as Polo, this givesthem a big status among the land.By 2006 Hackett have a childrens department and is involved in Aston Martin and the British Rugby union. They have269 across Europe including Dubai and Hong KongBy 2012 Hackett is a globally known brand about traditional British clothing and accessories and so they have a thrivingand bustling business across the globe.Hackett are the leaders in tailored suits and the traditional British dress of males and children as well as ladies.So Hackett now being established for well over 30 years have gained a very good voice in todays market for upmarketclothing accessories and attire for all.BRAND PROFILING
  19. 19. The customer would live in London central in a studio flat, he would holiday in perhaps Switzerland or maybe new York. He would dine in only the best of restaurants and when he is on his travels he would stay at the Ritz or the four seasons hotel around the globe. His job would be in Canary Wharf and would work for a stock trading company making a healthy income for his family. He would be between 25 up to 50 years of age assuming on the Hackett clothing and attire. He would attend evening events such as company dinners and on weekends he would spend his time at his country manor residence perhaps having a pheasant shoot when in season. In the city he would drive his pride and glory Aston Martin high speed vehicle and in the countryside he would drive his Land Rover Defender for his off roading antics. The client wears Hackett attire because he knows it is real quality clothing and that it shows off pure British class and that he wants and knows he must show himself as the best at all times to keep his professional profile. The draw to Hackett is that his wife will buy him the attire and the fragrance as gifts because she knows that Hackett is really what he wants because he knows that he wants to look his best. The client would also wear other high priced attire including Jaeger London and Austin reed tailoring but he would always appreciate Hackett products.CUSTOMER PROFILING

  21. 21. FURTHER SPECIFICATION AESTHETICS- my P.O.S would have the brand colours of blue and green, it will have the company logo and lettering. There will be images in relation to Hackett and its history and background. This will mean the customer will know all about Hacketts history when buying the product. It will also have lighting too light up the history wall and the product itself. It will also have a mechanism in which the sensitive touch sensor will give the fragrance a burst onto the wrist using a system I will develop. COST- my point of sale display unit will cost no more then the amount of products held on it at rrp. This will mean once it has been restocked it will have paid for itself and can then start to help make money straight off. CUSTOMER- the target market will be for males aged 25 years through to 40. it will be appealing in look and style and so will have to be drawn in to its uniqueness. ERGENOMICS- it will be easy to interact with and there will be no way you could strain yourself reaching for the Hackett bottle. FUNCTION- its function will be to allow for the handling of the bottled product and also to view the history and background of Hackett London while testing the product on your own skin but there will be fabric alternatives if you wish. SIZE- it ill be big enough or on a plinth to be at average eye level of 1 and a half metres so that if you wish to handle the product you don’t‘ strain your arms reaching for it and so its just below or chest height. MATERIALS- the P.O.S will be made of aluminium, oak and glass because these are all high quality materials and they will be proven to be durable.FURTHER SPECIFICATION
  22. 22. Step 1: to design the inner frame of the luggage trunk using Styrofoam, this gives me an idea at how the skeleton of the trunk will look before being covered by an inner layer and an outer layer Ive done this so I get an idea of what I would be doing first in order to make a luggage trunk. This will be made of an mdf and screwed together using screws, it will then be able to have a leather décor wrapped on the outside with wood panels placed on the inside for more support and to be robust. This is my original concept, Im changing it slightly so that inside there are no drawers and that it will be hollow with the product held where it is by leather straps to give a more vintage feel to this luggage trunk, it will be scaled down to fit on a shelf so it will be a mini style trunk design primarily to hold a fragrance and on the left the 2nd part will still stay as a Step 2: in order for the frame to be scrapbook dedicated to the Hackett Brand. steadied it needs to have the right There will be a shelf inside so that the main tester will panelling, Louis Viton used beech as be on top and the boxes for sale will be underneath inside panelling for their steamer trunks ready to be taken to the checkout. and so that’s what should be used to Also the point of sale Im producing will be on a stand replicate the most upmarket luggage in the store it ill be 50 cm in height, it will be 25 there is. Or I could go with another way centimetres in depth and each half section will be 30 and simply have the frame and then centimetres in length. canvas or leather around like other products of LV as you can see in the picture. This would make construction easier but would require more craftsmanship with the leather or canvas. Also looking at how the leather is put on is by glue or small rivets so that could make wrapping it on easier.DEVELOPMENT

The other woods I looked at was mdf-medium density fibreboard which I would use on inside panelling because of how cheap it is and how easy it is to work with, I may use thisLooking at leathers, they can be purchased from leather but if I did I would need to have astores and come in lots of colours, ill use a brown for myluggage trunk meaning that it will look like a vintagetrunk, they arent very expensive but It has to be able to lookgood.A leather that could be used for the trunk could be Heavy Block board is a good alternative because even though it isChap Leather Sides, a heavy leather in brown which is hard a man made board it has softwood inside but hardwood onwearing a sounds to be suitable for the product. the outside giving it an expensive look for what it reallyAlso another leather that I can use is zora Whole Hide is, this could go on the inside of the trunk because it wouldBrown which is used for handbags and other luggage.

I used the internet on how to find out about upholstering a luggage trunk using leather and so these are the instructions I found, to do this I will need, Fabric, Measuring tape, Fabric chalk, Screwdriver, Leather scissors, upholstery tacks, Corner caps Remove the handle using a screwdriver if necessary. Keep all the pieces since the handle will be reattached to the trunk later. Mark the material according to your measurements, then cut the material. Use fabric chalk to avoid a Looking at woods I can use for my trunk I had a look at a few, permanent mark. Also, mark the inside of the material that will be next to the trunk instead of the side beech is a good hardwood with a nice grain, it is durable and is facing the outside. Use a ruler to ensure you have straight edges, which will make the trunk look neater not too expensive in comparison to other hardwoods, I would use once you put the upholstery on it. beech on the inside panelling of my trunk to give it a high class Fold a hem on one side of the material, making sure its about 1-inch thick and facing down. Tack that look. edge onto the corresponding side of the trunk. You may have to place upholstery tacks at both corners of Also I looked at a softwood like piner which doesn’t look as the side youre tacking down. Dont put the tacks in the very corner, however; leave about an inch on the pleasing but I is cheaper and it also has a nice grain, I could also ends because you will be folding hems all the way around the material. use this in my project as all the woods I am looking at are good Hem each side and tack the corners down. Make sure the material is pulled taught and the hems face the to work with and play basic roles in the construction of my trunk trunk rather than being upward and exposed. mostly being out of sight and are used mainly as a frame for the Add upholstery tacks to secure the sides of this piece of material down. These should resemble rivets in canvas and or leather. the way that they cover the length of the material on each side and spaced about 2 inches apart. Repeat the process until all the sides of the trunk are covered. Add corner caps to each corner of the trunk to provide extra reinforcement to the upholstery. Replace the handle and any other hardware you took off to upholster the trunkDEVELOPMENT
  24. 24. Looking at locks for my trunk I considered a key lock as well as a classic brass latch lock pictured left below. All the locks would have to be screwed and Next I looked at luggage corners for my trunk. The so I would again use screws that would corners I will need are fan shaped corners preferably be able to not cause to much disruption from brass or aluminium, this will add great feature to the leather or the wood framing. to the trunk as well as be durable to the floor for On the right you can see a rivet, I would when being carried around like a normal luggage case use this for pinning the leather in the but even when being a point of sale unit it needs to wood of the trunk, this is how it was have the same function of a trunk because otherwise done originally and so I should follow it will not look like on as well as it not being a trunk the steps of how to make a vintage style in the end. I understand that some trunks have leather trunk. The lock below me is a classic but as well as being traditional it does need to have a lock used on sheds but I think it could be modern twist to it. It would be fitted to the trunk used for the front lock of the trunk for a using screws that would go through the leather or vintage look as well as a lock. canvas and into the wood framing inside. Through out the last few pages I have decided that Im going to have a frame made of MDF as it will not be seen internally or externally, it will be joined together using the angle brace joint to add extra stability to the frame as well as the design being able to wrap leather around it easier. Also I am going to use brass coloured metal corner caps for durability and appearance as using leather corners could mean that the trunk be damaged easier then if metal was used. Thinking about lock I thought about a lock with a key but I think it could be too complicated and expensive to get a lock mechanism thatJoins was suited to the trunk so instead I’m deciding on is a lock usuallyLooking at joins I thought about using the angle used on sheds, this will mean that it can have a lock of its own thenbraces for the inside of the frame, this way put on so that if it cannot be accessed and the key is lost it isnt veryconstruction will be easier and the frame will not be hard to then use bolt cutters on the lock to open its contents. Also Iseen on the inside anyway so it will be the easiest for Mitre joint know the leather will be put on using rivets made for leather and thatconstruction. Angle braces are always glued and Ive also thought about using the mitre join for the the corner caps will be nailed in and that the brace joint will bescrewed or nailed frame using glue to hold it together but I think this screwed together. Externally I will use mahogany for the best effect is the weakest join of the 3 for the classic look.Dowel jointI could use a dowel joint, its strong and could be used forthe frame‘This joint is quite easy to make, it consists of drillingaccurate holes in both sections of wood and joining themwith dowel pegs. Within in industry this is often used toconstruct flat pack furniture’.DEVELOPMENT
  25. 25. For the scrapbook style on the 2nd part of the luggage trunk I will use a piece of mdf to board up the inside , I will use a mahogany veneer to give it the look of being a hardwood, I will make sure its in the rectangular shape of the trunk and I On the inside on the trunk for the shelf I am going to use mdf for the shelf will glue it into place using an epoxy resin so it will stay in itself but its going to be layered with a green tweed for the point of sale to be place. sat on and the bottom shelf which holds the stock will also have the stock but the bottom will have a plinth of 16mm plywood for increased effect of a ‘step’ and so it will give a real effect of luxury as well as tweed which is what lots of British attire is made of so it shows of ‘essentially British’. For when my frame is to be made ill use a jig to make But underneath the the shelf I am going to put a mahogany veneer so that if sure that the pilot holes for the wood frame will be the someone looks underneath it looks professional and made from quality same through out so that the frame will be consistent materials. through out so that it will be as precise as possible. Therefore I will use a jig, it will be good form my frame because if the frame is not perfect then the whole project Next I decided to look at hinges for the trunk, the part will become slanted and it will not look professional at which will keep both parts together this means that they all. will have to be durable and cannot be cheap buy twice, it needs to be buy right buy once, I thought about using parliament hinges as they look nice and would go well Looking at handles which must go onto my trunk for safe handling I with the brass corner caps. They are simple and would go thought about perhaps a leather handle as seen pictured right, I also well on my trunk, I also looked at solid drawn hinge as thought about perhaps having a metal one but I think it would well because they are both similar but it is then down to definitely suit the trunk with a leather handle, one of which will be which one will match the corner caps as well s the handle durable and match the same colour of the leather on the case because on the trunk which I am yet to look at. Also looking at it cannot be the same colour but slightly lighter or darker because it the piano hinge, the piano hinge could be used but may will not look like a quality product. be too thin for the size of the luggage trunk as it will need to open up wide.DEVELOPMENT
  26. 26. I looked at glues for the leather onto wood as well as the corner caps onto leather too and this is what I found. The leather glue is a polyurethane based, heat activated glue that remains flexible even once set. This means that you can repair damage on high use areas and not be worried about the damage splitting open. Polyurethane based glue available in five different sizes. Remains flexible once set. Dries in about 15 minutes but I am going to put a wood coating onto continually sets over a 24 hour period. the mahogany to keep it from the Suitable for use on all leather types in all industries, this glue can elements, this is going to keep it from be used for leather and so it can also be used for wood as well as woodworm moisture damage and metals. There is also fabric glue which is said to be good for use warping, this will protect the wood for on leathers. years to come. I could put a latch onto the scrapbook area of the trunk to make it look like it opensThese are the tools I am going to need for everything Ive looked at so far I when it doesn’t so that it gives thathave leather scissors for the leather, the drill and bits for the wood frame effect, this would have to be screwed in byand the screws to go with it, Im using chalk to outline the leather with screws and the drill.chalk and use the rivets to put the leather in place. The hammer is forbanging the rivets in. For my trunk to be secure when it is standing it needs to have feet preferable rubber or metal. This will make it secure and it will not fall over unless pushed so it will be as safe as possible. They will either be screwed in or glued using fabric glue which works on metals as well as rubbers. I thought about putting wood into the external area of the trunk, it will reinforce the trunk and also help to give it a vintage look,. I will use rivets to put it into the leather through to the wood, this is the classic way of how luggage trunks are done so rivets need to be used. The wood I would use would be mahogany to match the other woods of the trunk. To give it the look of being old I can use aDEVELOPMENT
