design for corporate offices

revitalizing corporate offices with environmental graphics.


After years of working from home following the COVID-19 pandemic, there is a general hesitation for employees wanting to return to work in the office. No commutes, no need to buy fancy dress clothes, and peace & quiet are major work-from-home benefits – and challenges that companies are facing to get people back into the office setting. 

We were recently asked to help a corporate office in their journey to help employees return to the office. As designers, our job was to redesign their boring, traditional office look into something that breathed new life into the surroundings – and it was no easy task. 


When we started working with the company, we wanted to do more than create some appealing, arbitrary designs – we wanted to build out an engaging brand design experience that told the company’s story in a meaningful way. We started with the entrances.

The entrance areas became a space to showcase the brand presence – and more importantly, celebrate the lifestyles of the employees.  



“Overall, we approached this design with a mindset of “if these walls could talk” – then went beyond it to get the floors and ceilings in the conversation to boldly establish the brand story, while igniting the conversation to come into the office.”

how we improve corporate spaces

We used a number of new-age design tactics to take the office space from mundane to extraordinary:

igniting creativity and connection

We wanted to implement a comprehensive, no-holds-barred design strategy – which involved wall wraps and interactive art installations. Our team worked closely with the company to understand its brand identity, values, and desired atmosphere for the office.

wall wraps

Wall wraps can do wonders to transform a space. 

In this job, we turned the plain, boring office walls into a dynamic canvas. Through the artistic use of color, graphics, and patterns, we used the brand’s energy and personality to turn the space into a work of art inspired by the business values and local landscapes – paying homage to the company’s roots. 

This integration of nature and regional aesthetics worked to create a connection with employees – as well as foster a sense of pride in their surroundings.

By combining technology and art, our goal was to spark a new, invigorated sense of creativity and active participation within the office environment. The interactive elements also provided opportunities for employee recognition, displaying achievements, and a sense of community.

This could refer to graphics and designs that have a three-dimensional aspect, adding depth and visual interest.

This likely involves designs or graphics integrated into a physical space, complementing the environment and enhancing the overall ambiance.

The case study should include examples of signs or graphics that are raised or have a three-dimensional appearance, standing out from the surface they are mounted on.
