With office space design moving to new levels, it’s incumbent upon any business to make a bold statement in its facilities and workplaces. From green walls, to rotating art, to lounges and cold brew, the coolest offices have Instagrammable design elements including interior and exterior murals. If you have been wanting to commission a mural, but don’t know where to start, there are some cool companies working with incredible artists to bring creative office space aesthetics to life.
There are a few basic steps to commission a mural for your office, and you’ll want to keep a few things in mind, but making sure whomever you work with can serve as project manager & curator is going to make it a lot easier on everyone. At IPaintMyMind, we love being able to serve our clients and take care of artists’ needs in a way that makes the project seamless for everyone while producing a rad result.
These are a few things you’ll want to give your curator some info on so they can help guide you in the right direction. Most brand guides will connote a certain color palette, so that’s a great place to start.
The fact that you are even thinking about how to commission a mural must be because you have that one wall in your office that is calling out for it! Take a few photos that you can provide the curator as well as measurements (height and width of the wall).
You’ll also want to give some guidance on what your company tends to like when it comes to design, as well as to what degree you are comfortable with surrendering to the creative process and letting the artists do their thing. Either way is more than fine, but being able to give some descriptive words that will help hone in on the vibe will go a long way.
There are so many talented and gracious artists out there making commissioned murals in every style imaginable. Once you give us more insight into what you’re thinking, we’ll curate 3-5 artist options for you to choose from. That proposal also includes pricing for each artist, a project timeline, and information regarding logistics and implementation.
