Our project management team worked with a small number of key Xbox employees discussing what was possible. We identified several areas within the building where artwork would be suitable and ascertained what character franchises would work best within each area. Several building support columns in the office were identified as areas for artwork which posed a challenge for our graffiti artists; to create seamless designs that would wrap around these pillars.
To keep disruption to a minimum we created an out of office hours schedule to complete the project, working nights and weekends so disruption to our client was minimal. Designs were submitted for approval and were created within strict guidelines set out by the company.
Our team of four graffiti artists created 11 separate murals of varying sizes across the Xbox office space. Murals featured characters from best-selling Xbox games, the biggest space in the office was dedicated to one of the companies most popular titles – Halo, featuring a famous image of the game’s main character ‘Master Chief’. Images from other well-known games, such as Assassins Creed and Minecraft, were also painted by the team.
Murals on the pillars wrapped fully around seamlessly and key characters were positioned so that they could be clearly viewed from busy areas in the office.
A realistic Lady Gaga portrait was created for the music department.
