AK Rikk’s Nostaboard showcases an analog version of their store events and most popular brands like Nanuska, Stone Island, and Tom Ford that encouraged customers to shop the products displayed. Additionally, the display promoted customers to participate in trunk shows and sale events that season. The display gave AK Rikk’s the capability of highlighting those top shoppable brands and events in a more compelling way.
Split flap display is a digital electromechanical display device that presents changeable alphanumeric text, and occasionally fixed graphics. Often used as a public transport timetable in airports or railway stations, as such they are often called Nostaobard from Xibitz. Split-flap displays were once commonly used in consumer digital clocks known as flip clocks.
