At the London Investor Day, Publicis Groupe’s top executives showcased market-defining tools that have been developed to enable clients to communicate more effectively with their consumers. Included was the Razorfish Emerging Experiences group and its 5D platform. Attendees were introduced to it (pictured above) during a presentation of Audi City, a next-generation dealership built with 5D.
From the Digital Signage Expo in Las Vegas to the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, the Razorfish Emerging Experiences group has teams around the world working on a myriad of exciting projects. We’re building our newest lab in San Francisco, working with the Audi team in Frankfurt and hopping from New York to Atlanta to Seattle, Austin and Portland. We even have someone hitting the slopes at Telluride (but we don’t think that qualifies as work). Watch this space to see how these projects unfold.
After weeks of hard work, sleepless nights and countless cups of coffee, we unveiled the latest iteration of our groundbreaking 5D Retail Experience Platform at Retail’s Big Show: The National Federation of Retail’s 102nd Annual Convention & EXPO. We had fun showing off how 5D can customize, personalize and seamlessly synchronize the shopping experience, the biggest hits being the co-shopping feature and our synchronized transparent displays. We’re preparing a post focusing on some of the emerging trends in retail, but wanted to share some of the highlights from the two day event. If you weren’t able to make it in person, you can check out the experience here: emergingexperiences.com/5D. And be sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook for all the latest news and events coming from the Razorfish Emerging Experiences Group.
Creating the next big thing in retail is no easy task, but when you get to work with some amazing technology, it can be a lot of fun. Pictured above, Razorfish Emerging Experiences Associate Director Ryan Kellogg is seen hooking up our brand new transparent displays.
Some of the amazing brands that received a hands-on demonstration included Macy’s (pictured above with CEO Terry Lundgren on the far right), Ralph Lauren, Lowes, Walmart, Tesco, Toys“R”Us, Estée Lauder, Louis Vuitton, Loreal, UNIQLO, H&M, Levi’s, Wells Fargo, Staples, Total Wine, Swarovski, Gucci and Moods of Norway… just to name a few.
We presented the 5D platform to dozens of international delegations, including this one from Brazil (which had to be translated in real-time).
Our experience was one of the most popular at the event and was visited frequently by the media, including American Public Media’s Marketplace (seen above with Razorfish Emerging Experiences Vice President Jonathan Hull).
And when it was all over, we had the fun task of tearing it all down (which was a lot faster than putting it all up).
Get your hands on the 5D experience by embarking on a unique shopping journey that utilizes a variety of platforms and technologies, including a first of it’s kind, seamlessly-synchronized transparent interactive display wall. It’s located in the Microsoft booth (1005) on Level 3. And to see more of 5D in action, head on over to emergingexperiences.com/5D.
Our lab is buzzing with activity as the team prepares for the National Retail Federation’s 102nd Annual Convention & EXPO in New York. On display will be the latest iteration of Razorfish 5D— the world’s first cross-device, cross-OS, connected retail platform. Launched at last year’s NRF convention, 5D has already been launched in several markets and was used to create Audi City London, a one-of-a-kind immersive virtual showroom. This year we’re showing how our platform can power customized, personalized and seamlessly synchronized shopping experiences. We threw in some augmented reality and a bunch of transparent displays as well.
Our team will be demonstrating the 5D experience in booth #1005 on Level 3 of the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center. If you can’t make the show, be sure to follow us on Twitter to get the latest updates.
Most Contagious, that is.
We’re excited to announce that Audi City London has claimed Contagious Magazine’s Most Contagious Retail Award at a ceremony today in London. This experience was a year-long collaborative effort between Audi and a wide range of partners, and was launched near Piccadilly Circus just ahead of the summer Olympics. It is delivered by one of the most technologically advanced retail environments ever created and features a variety of multi-touch displays for configuring your Audi from millions of possible combinations. Once you’ve created your personalized Audi at this groundbreaking dealership, you can toss it onto one of the floor-to-ceiling digital “powerwalls” to visualize and explore your configuration at a true 1:1 scale. Audi City London is a true dealership of the future and an effort we were proud to be part of.

When we’re playing in our Lab, we’re always looking for creative ways to push the limits of technology. Some of our projects are just for fun, and others, like London’s Audi City, completely reinvent the way people shop. We were even thinking about digital wallets before they were cool. So when we set out to create the Razorfish 5D platform, our goal was to design a powerful and highly immersive way for brands to connect with consumers—before, during and after the shopping experience. In our latest video, we show how our 5D platform seamlessly connects a variety of digital devices to better attract consumers into the store, drive product engagement and arm store associates with more contextualized digital tools. The end result is a fun and personal experience, the way shopping should be.
