The window dressing embraces a myriad of disciplines, from art direction, craft, architecture, sculpture, facilities, graphic design ... you can play with colors, materials, perspectives and depths, even creating optical effects. The founders and creative directors of Creative Kiosk, Carla and Laura, began to enter the universe of showcase for big brands in 2014. Since then, they have already made more than 20 showcases for Hermès Panama, Mexico and Brazil, Swarovski or Disney.

In this course, Creative Kiosk will introduce you to the world of vitrinism. You will learn to create a brief and develop a concept for your project. After the conceptualization, you will receive some tips so that you can then carry it out, although you will not delve into the assembly phase.
