Volume 7 Issue 1
Design. What does the word mean to you? For many outside the industry, design is seen as a veneer, something that improves how things appear. As the editor of eSociety, I see in every issue how design does much more, it actually improves our lives on many levels. Creative excellence has a positive impact on how we feel and how live, work and learn – every issue of eSociety inspires me about the possibilities of great design and I hope you feel the same.
I’m a sucker for a beautifully designed shop so it was thrilling to speak to Carlo Camillo, the Global Director of Store Design & Visual Merchandising at Christian Louboutin Beauté. Read how he translates the exquisite brand values into retail environments on page 14.
