SSBC environmental graphics

Shared Services BC provides shared supply solutions to support provincial government ministries, Crown corporations and the broader public sector. When they were planning the new Lower Mainland Contact Centre for Surrey, BC, they wanted to provide their staff with a considered, vibrant and contemporary office environment. Working with interior designers and their existing colour and finishes palette, I first identified the spaces and surfaces where graphics would be most appropriate; ensuring the space had ‘pace’ and wasn’t overloaded with graphic treatment is critical.

The final concept provides an abstract, yet symbolic representation of the way teams and individuals are encouraged to work here. The many disparate strands coming together to meet a common goal. The solution is subtly organic, taking some cues from nature to provide a soothing flow, while complementing the interior finishes.
