Last year myself and Middleton Group worked closely with Hasbro Canada and Toys R Us Canada on the world’s first Nerf HQ branded environment. Located in London, Ontario, The environment came together remarkably quickly and it is amazing to see a concept come to reality. Some highlights include a 26ft LED lightbox that spans across the entire back of the space, a large entry arch with illuminated Nerf logo and one of my favorite elements, a series of chain link Nerf blaster displays. I’m going to miss having all those toy blasters to play with, but I’m looking forward to the next project. Take a look at the finished space, and if you’re in the London area, it’s located at 3075 Wonderland Road.
