About
Retail stores are for more than just shopping. They’re a place where people learn about products and build a relationship with a brand in a physical space.

The customer of today is looking for an experience. At Cutler, we believe this experience should be memorable, authentic and shareable. It should also be consistent across all applications of the brand – from e-commerce to social media to brick and mortar.

We develop unique retail environments that reflect the spirit and personality of the brand. The customer journey begins with enticing storefronts that make a memorable first impression while drawing customers inside. Throughout the space, we incorporate proprietary brand cues that build recognition and equity over time.

The hero of the retail experience is always the product. Through research and collaboration with the client team, we gain an understanding of the product story. We then tell that story through processes such as space planning, fixture design, and graphics and signage development.

One aspect that can easily make or break the product’s presentation is lighting. All aspects of lighting design, from colour temperature to output to the direction of track heads, are carefully developed by our internal team to suit each and every store.

With a long history of developing successful retail environments across the country, we speak the language of retail and understand its unique challenges. Our projects range from pop-up shops in Whistler to flagship CRU’s in Toronto. We’ve had the privilege of working alongside talented industry colleagues and maintain excellent relationships with landlords, brokers, contractors and vendors. We work closely with our clients to ensure their concerns, from security to ROI, are at the forefront of our solutions.
