Julian Hurst Interiors, a high street shop in north Finchley, sells flooring, curtains, blinds, wallpapers and paints and provides coordinated interior design solutions. In suggesting a treatment for his promo video, I interviewed Julian to understand his key customers and the value he can offer them.

Talking to Julian and ‘Rocky’ (Rochelle), it was clear that the shop is really a design database with over 3,000 interior design products including approved suppliers of exclusive brands. The video offer needed to invite customers in to have a conversation which could save time and money, and reassure that Julian is highly regarded for his professionalism, integrity and commitment to the customer
