Nestled in the Wicker Park neighborhood, YETI Chicago showcases an outdoor experience within the urban landscape and seeks to inspire all who crave adventure.
From the Ambassadors screens to the YETI Presents films, the digital signage facilitates an atmosphere for the consumers of exploration to tread back into nature. YETI also strives to uplift and work closely alongside the local community and deep-seated roots in Chicago. By reimagining the beloved and historic Double Door venue, the tradition of music will continue to reside within those walls as YETI partnered with Werd to create a space for live music. Chicago continues to be a major musical center, and that was kept at the forefront of the AV design.
Werd brought to fruition YETI's vision to design, integrate, install, and manage an AV system for their Chicago retail store. From staffing event techs for live events to remote oversight and maintenance, the system is not only designed for day to day retail needs, but it is also expandable and capable of powering private events, concerts, and screenings - all controlled with the touch of a tablet. The installed digital screens are capable of being managed remotely, allowing for quick and easy changes across the board by uploading, scheduling, and distributing content updates to the corresponding signage elements.
