In-store graphics

We can't get enough of shopping. According to the Office of National Statistics, as of July 2005 the UK's retail sector employed 2.9 million people, or 11 per cent of the country's workforce, generating sales worth some £260bn. This year, in August alone, Britons splashed out £4.7bn in the nation's shops, markets, malls, grocery stores and bazaars.

Potentially, this means pay day for designers happy to design in-store graphics. But this is no simple buy-a-book-and-try-it-out discipline. It requires a conceptual mind, one capable of imagining materials, 2D graphics within a 3D space, and an understanding of how shops work.
