Your Window To A Little Big Christmas!

On behalf of Victoria Leeds Shopping Centre, where you can shop high street to high-end, we were commissioned by film and event production service company, Beautiful Productions to deliver an awe-inspiring, stand-alone Christmas window display.

Located in the beautiful Victoria Quarter – a historically-rich shopping district adorned with high-end boutiques – the big reveal of this magical Christmas activation on the 19th November marked the first of a new tradition for the shopping centre of a Christmas window unveiling ceremony that children and adults of Leeds can look forward to year on year!

Little Big Christmas


Responding to the brief, we put forward three creative directions – “Little Big Christmas”, “Snowglobe”, and “The Festive Feast” – that would engage and excite, present a visual spectacle, and be both locally and colloquially relevant. The client expressed a preference for “Little Big Christmas” where the display would contain miniature models of iconic Leeds’ buildings in which you can peep inside the windows to see human silhouettes indulging in decadent Christmas celebrations. We further refined the concept to include explorable moments that both children and adults can discover, from animal-themed vignettes set in underground burrows and a festive train that travels through the playful presentation of recognisable architecture.


Behind the temporary hoarding stood a whimsical Christmas display in a bespoke, free-standing window structure made up of charmingly-detailed dioramas ready to bring the joy of Christmas to shoppers of Leeds!

Ideas made possible.


We worked with D4R on a project for my client, who wanted to create a freestanding, Christmas themed shop window. This was our first project working with D4R, and I can’t praise them enough. They were great to work with from concept to completion, with great communication every step of the way. My client was so happy with the end product that they’ve now decided to keep the shop window in as a long-term structure, being rethemed throughout the year.
