Joseph Weishar is the president of New Vision Studios Inc., a retail design and consultancy firm located in New York City. For the past 40 years he has been a store designer, visual merchandiser, and commentator for stores of all sizes, economic levels, designer boutiques, food markets and shopping centers. His first book, Design for Effective Selling Space, was well received by the retail design community. Mr. Weishar has written numerous articles and spoken at many conventions on these subjects, and his slide presentations are legendary in the retail industry. He is currently teaching at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York.Review:
The author, in his own words, has been studying the principles of art and aesthetics for 40 years and communicating them to retailers. This means that he has developed a clear understanding of ideas of color, lighting, texture, rhythm, movement and depth as they are used in art and theater and how they are valid for retail. There are some basic principles such as the use of visual stimuli and artistic balance which can be learnt and applied. He develops a visual vocabulary which becomes part of the tool kit of visual merchandising. Visual merchants may not be able to make people buy, he says, but they can make the sight, approach and attitude towards a purchase more positive. And this is the role of all those responsible for presentation from store managers through sales staff to the back room. In the current identity crisis faced by retailers, the creating of a space that maintains a visual signature and allure is a key differentiating factor. This book is an attempt to communicate the importance of this idea as well as to demonstrate how to put it into practice. Perhaps the true generosity of the book and its author lies in its powerful pedagogic imperative. Since the book is based on the author's own work and presentations, there is a constant concern with training and communicating his experience and knowledge. Not only are the principles laid out clearly but the illustrations and explanations all stress implementation. Weishar is sharing his experience of working with countless retailers around the world and truly demonstrating the power of his message whether it is used in hypermarkets, discount retailers, luxury boutiques or department stores. This is a book which is both fascinating to a general reader and immensely useful to anyone in retail. The message of the power of aesthetic principles comes across most strongly perhaps when they are illustrated by a juxtaposition of two very different retailers on the same pace. Thus a Continent hypermarket shares a page with Bally in New York, and later in the book Victoria's Secret and Kmart lingerie display are both used as examples of good visual presentation, albeit at different ends of the market. --Christopher Knee
