Brick & Mortar-fied: The Journey of Blue Nile

Digital markets and physical retail markets, while intricately connected, also pose wildly different challenges. Updating and adapting a brand from a digital space to a physical place is challenging. Branding must be kept consistent with what digital customers know and love, but a brand is more than just a color, pattern, or logo. For Blue Nile, beginning this journey was daunting and challenging, but worth it to create a vibrant atmosphere and showroom their customers love.

“I can attest to the success this new and improved design has had on wowing our established customers and attracting new customers.”
