The Design Challenge

Long featureless hallways or corridors that offer nothing in the way of visual engagement, or wayfinding and location orientation. Large, prominent sections of blank wall that reflect a sterile, institutional feel. A lobby, hallways, cafeteria, or stairwell that do nothing to communicate and amplify your company values, your brand identity, or share messages of inspiration and energy.

The Impact

An experiential vacuum. A series of lost opportunities to create truly amazing human experiences. Wasted moments that could have been used to distract from stress or pain, or to help nurture focus and motivation. Disoriented visitors whose anxiety is amplified with no clear sense of where they are, or where to go. Or a grumpy CMO who discovers the company brand could have been promoted and reinforced throughout the company’s facilities.   

The Solutions

Wallcovers and Wall Panels are economical and versatile solutions that can easily solve for a wide range of interior design, aesthetic, and marketing challenges.

Wallcoverings, typically premium wallpaper, custom cut vinyl or back-printed wall panels, immediately transform entire walls into pieces of art. Walls can also become canvases on which to promote brand identity through custom graphics, logos, or messaging.

Imagery can also be used to aid in wayfinding and clear location identification.

Design Recommendations


Wallpaper is excellent for creating stunning murals in entryways or lobbies, or for enhancing stairwells. Vinyl can be cut into any shape imaginable from custom graphics and designs, to logos and text.

Wall Panel w/ Protection

Wall Panel w/ Protection is an innovative solution that provides the high-impact durability and longevity of PETG, with the clear, crisp imagery of high-resolution digital printing. Imagery is back-printed on a second surface transparent .040 PETG sheet, before a polyester backer is applied. Perfect for high-traffic areas, transitional spaces, and pediatric/children’s spaces that hosts curious little hands.

Product Specifications

All films and wallcoverings are printed at high-resolution to assure crisp and detailed images.
