what's a LAMA?

LAMA is a new trend in POP for the US. This type of display has been used in Europe for many years. Made of cardboard, rubber bands and held together by an innovative and patented design by Marins, enables it to fold out, install automatically and fold flat.

Its compact and lightweight design allows the lama to be easily transported and shipped at a low cost. Eco-friendly materials and a small retail footprint can appeal to a variety of costumers.  The Lama can give a product or advertisement a short-term or permanent display with the option to customize the shape, size, and color.



JDA recently had the opportunity to create a lama for Canon. The lama was displayed in-store at a size of 11” x 30”, and was easily placed on a counter top where consumers could clearly see the visuals and interact with the lama. The lama was printed on both sides; therefore, it could be flipped to reveal new graphics with a different messaging.

2. Come together. Everyone has an opinion, so clear project objectives are vital to any job. Consensus regarding the creative brief must be obtained from the people expected to judge the package design from within your corporation. Without this consensus, the design process will fall apart. Without clearly stated, agreed-upon objectives, you are not able to provide constructive feedback. As soon as you start to …

Look What Mio Started!

I posted an article about some very interesting interactive advertising for the water enhancement liquid call Mio back in 2012 when this category was fairly new: Totally Interactive Advertising . It is hard to create print advertising that truly stands out so I was eager to share the concept. (Basically, you dip the ad in water and it recreates what the product does when added to a glass of water.)

Since then the category has matured. More brands have joined Mio on shelf and Mio has continued to create brand extensions. Here is how many brands there are to choose from now. It is truly overwhelming:


Right next to these liquid water enhancers are their forefathers, the powered water enhancers, such as Crystal Light and the original grand daddies of them all Tang and Kool-Aid:
