Office Wall Graphics Ideas

So, in which ways can wall graphics be designed to boost employee well-being and engagement?

1. Custom wall murals:

One of the most striking ways to individualise your office space without spending a fortune is by designing an eye-catching wall mural that reflects your company’s mission, values, or success stories. These visuals not only add colour and personality to your office but can also remind your employees of what your company stands for. Engage your employees in the design process so that your graphics reflect their priorities, team spirit, and pride in their workplace. Whether this means recognising their project achievements or reflecting their unique humour and outlook, a bespoke wall mural can invigorate an office and create a talking point for both employees and visitors.

2. Motivational wall graphics

Brits are known throughout the world as being somewhat cynical and unresponsive to motivational messages. This is probably unfair, considering the huge popularity of motivational quotes and slogans in both commercial and domestic interior design. Think how many mugs and posters now feature the slogan ‘keep calm and carry on’, for example. While businesses should be cautious of overdoing motivational wall graphics in case it backfires, using your wall graphics to feature motivational graphics, quotes, or illustrations that align with your company culture can be an effective way of encouraging engagement and a shared team identity. 

These inspirational messages can serve as daily reminders for employees to stay focused and motivated, while surrounding your team with positive affirmations and encouraging words can help sustain positivity and alleviate the effects of workplace stress. Look around for unusual or lesser-known quotes, or make use of sayings used by respected colleagues or those voted on by your team. These usually work better than corporate-sounding phrases, or overused quotes by Gandhi, Bob Marley, and other cultural figures.

3. Team recognition walls

A good way of motivating your workforce is to dedicate spaces within your office for recognising employee milestones, efforts, and successes. Use your large format prints to showcase employee accomplishments – individually or as a team – as a way of fostering a culture of gratitude and appreciation. By publicly acknowledging the hard work and dedication of your team, you can boost morale and motivation while also strengthening relationships among colleagues.
