Illuminated Transitional Wall Mural

The Challenge

The developer wanted something exciting and innovative; an original piece of artwork that wasn’t just a big video monitor hanging on the lobby wall.

The Solution

After listening closely to his ideas and getting a good feel for the local environment, we submitted twelve possible concepts for consideration. All were met with great enthusiasm and in fact, the final mural would be a combination of the best ideas culled from the original twelve. Upon completion, the mural measured twenty feet in length and incorporated color-changing LEDs, fiber optics, and dimmable-fluorescent black lights. These elements are controlled via electronics housed in a light box that is built into the wall. By day, the massive sea scape resembles a normal painting: with crashing waves and a distant horizon. As evening approaches however, the sky begins to lighten, changing almost imperceptibly from gold, to orange, to purple, until finally the stars start to twinkle overhead and the image of a ghostly pirate ship begins to materialize above the water.

Experience Counts

Delivering the “WOW Factor” our clients are looking for is often at the heart of what we do. It’s also why the developer on this job has reserved a “WOW Factor” budget for something special on his latest project. He’s not sure what it’s going to be yet, he just knows he wants us involved. Frankly, we can’t wait. .
