Wall murals are getting popular as more companies adopt modern designed office spaces for their office. Inspirational and artistic wall murals are common in tech giants, such as Google; where many perceive it as the ultimate dream office to work in.
Having a wall mural in your office is not just about being in-trend with tech giants but there are more benefits besides being just a pretty wall.
A carefully curated wall mural can help communicate and visually reinforce the intangibles of a company. Wall mural story tells your brand story like frescoes in the cathedral and a statement of your brand and company culture, just like how street graffiti is a marker of identity.
You can incorporate your company colours, brand imagery, corporate values into your wall mural. By featuring it at prominent places like reception area, lounge; it sets the mood for visiting guests and set the tone for the workday.
Curated wall murals serve as a daily boost for the company’s workforce. We spend 40% of our time in a day, average 50 hours a week in office. To some, the office is like a second home to them. Thus, an office that is well decorated, attractive, comfy and designed with the mind of the users are important. It directly boosts happiness and increases the productivity of the staffs. Hence, it is natural that people choose to work in a nice modern designed office versus a dull traditional office.
Dr.Craig Knight discovered that people feel much happier and work better in a workspace with arts and plants. The results increase by double when they empowered the users to personalise their workspace. He concluded this after spending 12 years studying the psychology of the workplace environment.
WORQ X Artifigura
WORQ TTDI has recently expanded and we have commissioned local mural artist Artfigura to hand paint their masterpiece on the 22ft x 9ft blank wall.
Attractive wall murals in your office lobby and waiting area can also help attract talents. This works especially for the millennial talents who are driven by purpose, seeking self-actualisation in their work. This gives a positive impression to them and they can also sense whether the company brand, vision and mission are aligned with them.
When they feel good and positive about the work environment, it is more likely that they will accept the offer letter to join the company.
Wall murals help transform an office space from a sterile dull one to a lively and inspiring space. If your office does not have the luxury of a large window with beautiful sceneries, a wall mural can be a solution to elevate the space.
Wall murals can also elevate a plain open office with rows of tables and chairs to a cool office like those tech giants.
“Aesthetic in the truest sense means energy-giving which is what a workplace needs, rather than a bland, industrial environment which can be more like giving workers a dose of anaesthetic.” – Alex Heath, Managing Director at International Art Consultants
Also, wall murals are an efficient way to decorate the space without taking up space in the office. You don’t need to crack your head to get unnecessary furniture to fill up your office space just because the office looks bare.
