Art for the Workplace - from Primary Graphics

case studies

 Gencoa (specialists in thin film technology) have moved to fabulous new premises in Speke, Liverpool. The modern interior has acres of clean white walls crying out for some workplace art from Painted4me. The company employs over 30 people with three quarters working in roles dedicated to product design, development or assembly in the large workshop area, which is overlooked by spacious open-plan offices on both floors. Here is just a taste of the work in progress.

New products and processes recorded by an in-house photographer were identified as ideal material to use creatively and 16 were selected for large acrylic panels in the reception, stairs and boardroom. A wallpaper feature wall has been designed for the boardroom showing Liverpool scenes, particularly as they entertain overseas clients who like to get a flavour of the city.

Another creative design is in progress for the large stairs wall, working with our Lancashire Life artist, Nick Oliver. The remaining office areas will feature more creative product images as well as the work of several more of our artists as special commissions.

Part of the brief was to create a feature wall with British birds. Gerry’s design showed swallows flying in a curve.
