We offer a complete Interior Design solution. If a client already operates a retail store that needs a major or minor change we typically come out to see the space with a free consultation. We can create a punchdown list of changes that they would like to see. These might include re optimization of space / floor plan to optimize display, finishes, lighting or many other aspects of your interior design. Sometimes you just need someone with a great expertise in finishes to assist you in making the choice if you are considering how your going to display your merchandise, carpet, drapes or any FFE (furniture, fixtures and equipment) needed for the design. We then start planning, are you currently looking to enhance and/or expand clientele? We can offer a feasibility study. We can discuss retail branding which I'm sure your already familiar with.

At Maxey Hayse we stress branding: naming strategy, brand strategy, identity design, certain guidelines, retail graphics to right inside the store brand presence all the way to packaging design and bagagge. We feel this is imperative as we see retail storefronts suffering from an identity crisis.

We try to help our clients create realistic budgets and timeframe's for their stores design, construction and preperation of design drawings and documentation this will include:

• Storefront and signage.

• Crucial and sometimes not thought out most efficiently is that your product layout and merchandising are in perfect flow of the design you choose to make sure your merchandise is being displayed the best way possible. We make sure traffic flow analysis is the most efficient determined, early in the design process. This and other factors determine how fast you can capture your return on investment.

• Design services such as floor plan, finish specifications, lighting plan, color selections,cabinetry or millwork needed for display or detail, everything from ceiling to floor gets consideration.
• In store design, icons and mnemonics to enhance or start branding your business model.

• We work with and have a great repoire with some of the most seasoned architectural firms as well as general contractors that specialize in retail development. The client often wants us to oversee these aspects or may provide their own architecture to rely on MEP's or assistance with HVAC or ADA issues in which we can work side by side with.
