Downing – office graphics

The Graphical Tree Downing office graphics design print and installation
We collaborated with creative agency Branch to produce floor to ceiling graphics for Downing, an investment and wealth management company. The offices were devoid of any graphical elements or signage before we undertook the work. Ultimately, the graphics produced really helped to bring an air of vibrancy to the environment.
The Graphical Tree printed and installed a series of designs with image and geometric patterns throughout the different Downing departments. These help to differentiate areas within the company, as well as enliven the space for staff and clients alike.

The office is a working environment with over one hundred staff on site. As a result the walls are likely to have their fair share of knocks and scrapes on a daily basis. To help with wear and tear the graphics were produced using a permanent self adhesive vinyl with an anti-scuff seal.

When the prints were installed, they were trimmed with what's called a scuff edge. This is where the edge of the print is cut slightly in from the edge of the wall. This helps keep the graphics safely away from people rubbing the edge of the print. Over time, this could potentially cause it to come away from the surface.

The Downing offices have a number of glass meeting rooms, for these we produced a series of manifestations. We printed to self adhesive frosted vinyl and applied these to the glass. This gave the rooms a sense of privacy, but still allowed light to permeate into the offices.

As part of the project Downing commissioned three triangular frames in the shape of the company logo. This acts as an ever changing gallery space within the staff area. The idea being that the company employees could exhibit their own imagery within the frames. Each frame consists of a simple printed paper inkjet print trimmed to the frame shape. Paper prints are quick and cost effective to produce, meaning they can be changed on a regular basis.
