‘What a pleasure it was working with Host, they gave us such a wonderful fun and playful brief to work with, the finished illustrative murals certainly have had the desired effect they wanted in their new office’

Mark Crowther – Creative Director, Soulful Creative

The Brief /

Host Staffing specialise in recruiting the right hospitality staff for some of London’s most iconic venues.

They wanted to create a fun and vibrant new office environment to welcome the many clients and hospitality team members who visit their premises on a regular basis.  We were commissioned to create two murals for the office and training rooms and glass manifestation for the upstairs glass meeting room and chill out room. In addition we were asked to look at how wayfinding could be incorporated within the design.

Our Solution /

We designed, created and hand-painted two fun, illustrative murals for the office and training spaces. The mural in the main office incorporated quirky characters including food and drink based characters relevant to the hospitality industry. The main office mural was also continued onto glass in the chill out area using glass manifestation printed with latex print on clear optical film to create bright colours and a transparent finish.

The predominately black and white training space mural complements the sophisticated black and mirrored décor in the adjacent bar area, with ‘pops’ of Host red in the guise of hearts which bring the space to life.

The quirky characters also escape the main walls and can be found dotted around the building carrying out wayfinding and informational duties – such as a placard holding pink Octopus reminding people to wash their hands.
