IPC Shopping Centre, in Petaling Jaya, Malaysia, is owned and managed by Swedish giant IKEA, and recently went through a much-needed brand refresh in the face of stiff competition from shopping malls in the vicinity. The brief was to develop a mobile app that showed a shopping centre that is connected to its community.
Our challenge was to develop a mobile app that goes beyond the standard mall retailers' directory. We wanted an app that connected with shoppers on the most instinctive level.
