Spiral Colour we were called on to lend our experience with a project to create a friendly environment for both customers and designers in their Manchester office.
New branding meant that this office required new colours and a new theme, and we advised from the outset which substrates and application was best suited to the surfaces. The job was to include:
• Plotted vinyl graphics.
• Painted walls.
• Bespoke Wallpaper.
• Canvas Prints.
• Window vinyls printed and frosted.
Colour Matching the Walls.
For the walls we matched brand colours by mixing Little Greene paints which produced a perfect match in a satin finish. The satin finish was important as we were going to be adding plotted vinyl graphic and text to these walls later. The paint was left over two weeks to dry, this stops any vinyls from becoming dog-eared and tired as the paint de-gases and dries.
Plotted Vinyl application.
Rather than apply a full wallpaper to these walls, we mixed the paint to match brand colours and then applied printed plotted vinyl text to the walls, once the wall was completely dry. These were plotted on our quick Mimaki plotter which has a capability up to 1.3 metres wide.
Bespoke Wallpaper Application.
The wallpapers were colour sampled before application to ensure the colours matched brand. Slight tweaks were made to colour profiles before deciding on an accurate match. The wallpapers were added to two walls. Each 520mm drop was overlapped then spliced to give a near seamless graphic across the walls. The Ian Brown quote gave the wall an imposing canvas space on entry into the office.
We printed 15 canvas prints to create a client space and a wall to show who they worked for. In this case the canvases were a simple A4 landscape and could be easily replaced, added to or rearranged. Our installers carefully lined each canvas up to form a block of squares.
Using a frosted window vinyl we printed graphics to match brand colours. Once again we sampled accordingly to make sure each colour matched brand before we went into full production. The window vinyls were applied out of hours to ensure little disruption to every day office life!
