I have recently been working with Iceni Projects to develop some artwork for their new Manchester office. Iceni Projects are an award-winning consultancy. They provide advice in the fields of design, delivery, engagement, heritage, planning, sustainable development and transport. They have offices in London, Manchester and Glasgow. Having recently moved into their quirky new office at “This is the Place” on Quay Street, they wanted an office mural artwork to make the space their own.
The Manchester team wanted a hand-painted mural in their boardroom that was bold, reflected what they do, where they do it and was site-specific. Iceni work with a range of clients, from huge commercial developments to home renovations. They approach each project with an individual and personal approach. This is something that I wanted to communicate in the design. The office mural artwork that we decided to go forward with was inspired by the quote from one of Manchester most famous music pioneers, Tony Wilson (Link to wiki). “This is Manchester, we do things differently here”.
The Manchester office mural has gone down very well. The quote links to how Iceni approach their work and it has connotations to their location in Manchester. Using the 3D effect, along with the shadow, creates a bold and eye-catching wall mural that is viewed perfectly from their meeting room table in the boardroom. The colour scheme was chosen to reflect key pieces of furniture and fixtures in the room so it complements its surroundings.
This Manchester office mural is one of three that I’ll be producing at Iceni Projects. I’ll be posting details of the further office mural artwork in the near future.
