In The Wild at the DNC

in

As we wind down a busy Spring and Summer here at Boxman Studios, we’re kicking off a busy Fall with the Democratic National Convention right here in our hometown of Charlotte, NC. We are going to be well-represented for the event, but, because our containers are part of other exhibits, you won’t see our branding […]

Solutions for Multi-City Events and Activations

in

Given the current price of oil and the massive quantity of fuel it takes to criss-cross the United States, not to mention the expenses associated with sending staff across the country, brands are using more intimate, local displays to engage consumers. Multi-city launches are commonplace for brands to reach consumers in several geographic locations concurrently. […]

Customization is King

in

When your business model is repurposing discarded shipping containers – everything’s a custom job. Back in 2009 when we launched our company, there was no blueprint on how to turn 20′ metal containers into hip, green hospitality suites. For example, shipping containers don’t usually have hinged side walls. But over the past year or so we’ve […]

New Year – New Plan

in

In the past, Event Marketing was all about how far big brands would be willing to go to have the most impact and touch the most people. But 2012 will be the beginning of an era when brands seek to be more nimble with multiple touch-points. Instead of one massive display or one major sponsorship, […]

Kudos to Starbucks

in

In case you haven’t seen it yet, Starbucks has created a drive-up/walk-up store in Tukwila, WA, made entirely of shipping containers. Brilliant. We caught wind of this a couple of weeks ago and have had lots of people ask us whether we were involved. We were not. But this innovative use of shipping containers for retail is exactly the kind […]
