The LCBO (Liquor Control Board of Ontario) is one of the world’s largest buyers and retailers of beverage alcohol, with 639 retail stores. LCBO was building a flagship store with their new rebrand backing the direction. This innovative store was part of a strategy in providing the best shopping experience in high density urban areas. Inspirational photographs were needed for decor, as well as a mural wrapping around the beer cold room.
