Crusoe's brand imagery of being adventurous was taken as the 'essence' and funneled in the design of retail elements inside the store. The store design revolves around being adventurous.

Fixtures, furniture, ceiling, lighting, shelving, window display etc all are derived from elements of 'adventure sports' and are showcased accordingly. For example Skateboards form shelves for merchandise and kayaks form lighting in ceiling.

The store will provide the customer a unique brand experience and an adventurous ambience, true to its brand identity of appealing to an younger audience. Crusoe targets young customers in the age group of 16-35 years.
