5th Floor Wonderwall
Client: Transport for Greater Manchester (TfGM)
Brief: The head offices of TfGM are spread out over 8 floors. On floors 2 to 7, there is a seven metre wide partition wall separating the lifts from the open plan office. The design team were tasked with making these walls look more visually appealing for staff and visitors as they exited the lifts. For the wall on the 5th floor, I created a stencil graffiti-esque montage of iconic Mancunians. This artwork was created digitally and printed on vinyl before application to the wall.
