We spotted this custom end cap display by Old Spice in a grocery store in Vietnam and it caught our attention for so many reasons. It was really striking just like its TV ad. The design is not only well-thought-out, but it is also easily recognizable.

We love everything about this display: the colors, style, texture, and functionality. An end-cap is a display found usually at the end of a long gondola shelf. They are a fantastic point of sale marketing display idea because it allows merchandisers to use their retail space more efficiently.

5 Lessons on Old Spice End Cap Display Design

Make It Pop: Old Spice’s signature red display surely stood out from the rest. Red is a warm color, which, according to psychology, creates a sense of urgency and stimulates appetite. It is also associated with “passion,” “action,” and “energy.” Because Old Spice is a brand designed for men, the color reinforces their brand image and the message they are trying to convey.

Familiarity: “Did you know that I am riding this horse backwards?” Who does not know this catchy line? We have seen it on TV numerous times. It is one of those commercials that left me scratching my head. So whenever I look at the merchandising end cap, I always recall that funny line. As you can see, the designer also incorporated the photo of the guy into their display. It is slightly protruding, creating a 3D effect. Because the commercial is really popular, Old Spice also became synonymous with the guy “riding his horse backwards,” which never fails to elicit laughter from passersby.

Accessibility: Accessibility is one of the reasons to have a custom end cap display. Customers can easily grab one of their items on the go. Furthermore, as this section is dedicated to just one product, it gives Old Spice a massive advantage over its competitors. They were able to showcase all their products on one shelf.
