Duggal experts brought dimensional layering to the original master image files, enabling 3D-to-the-touch print production, uniquely available at Duggal Visual Solutions. This sculptural effect is possible through state of the art technology and equipment that can print textures, in this case on metal foil with a matte laminate to tone down the shine inherent in foil, then finished by adhering the piece to black gallery grade plexi.

Starbucks US ING UNEXPECTED DES IGN TO DR I VE BRAND LOYALTY
With more than 21,000 stores and 60 million customers weekly across the globe, Starbucks might as well be a religion. But it’s not just the coffee that keeps people coming back; the Starbucks experience is one of superior service, environmental awareness and ethical sourcing stitched together with cohesive, creative design. As Starbucks’ preferred graphics and material production consultant, we work alongside their world-class team to develop captivating visuals on unconventional surfaces. A gorgeous, constellation-themed mural at Starbucks in 2 Grand Central Tower captures the levitating energy of New York’s iconic train station, inviting customers in for a cup of coffee and a break from the busy world outside. We worked hand-in-hand with Starbucks store designers to produce a durable, colorful wallcovering that required perfect execution to isolate and match various light fixtures playing into the image.
Duggal produced a large format arrangement of architectural cement panels at Starbucks’ 54th Street & Broadway location, serving as liaison between the general contractor and design team to facilitate the heavy yet fragile installation. In SoHo, the Spring Street Starbucks welcomes its au courant crowd with a mirror map of the world’s coffee growing regions. Printed directly onto oversized glass with white ink, the map equates brews with the exotic cultural experiences sought by New Yorkers and tourists alike. Duggal is committed to continuing our collaborative design endeavors with Starbucks. It’s both a privilege and a pleasure to help convert their creative visions to in-store realities.

One of the biggest to hit retail real estate in decades is having a significant effect on retailers' logistics and distribution networks. Lifestyle centers - typically 150,000 to 575,000 square feet in size - are vibrant, upscale, Main Street style shopping areas with aesthetic extras such as plazas, fountains, decorated walkways, and landscaping. They are often located in affluent zip codes. Lifestyle centers offer customers a shopping experience through a combination of fashion, home goods, food, entertainment and services, including destination spots such as high-end restaurants. This strategy is paying off for both retailers and real estate developers.

CliffordRoss LANDSCAPE SEEN & IMAGINED
Clifford Ross’s work is immersive and fascinating on every tier of the way humans interact with art. Ross, the New York-based artist perhaps most known for his black-and-white Hurricane series capturing wind-churned waters while tethered to shore, is a multimedia mastermind who has been featured in MoMA, the Met, the Guggenheim and overseas. His latest body of work, Landscape Seen & Imagined, is now on display at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art (MASS MoCA). Landscape Seen & Imagined is a magnificently large-scale survey spanning two buildings, six galleries and an outdoor courtyard. The centerpiece, a towering 25-foot-high, 114-foot-wide photograph printed on raw wood, spans the entire length of the museum’s tallest gallery and would dwarf even several viewers standing on each other’s shoulders. Ross has worked with Duggal and called on us to execute his grand vision for the unconventional medium. Duggal’s wide format team produced 90 panels, each matching perfectly in both size and visual flow. The end result is easily one of the largest museum-quality photographs you will ever see. 57
