When commencing a mural project, we request basic information from our clients to best serve their project needs. Our initial discussion will help determine the project scope, your vision for the project and address any questions you may have about the mural painting process. We highly recommend a complimentary on-site mural consultation with one of our artists to discuss your vision for the project, survey the location and take dimensions on our end. 

We offer competitive pricing in our industry based on the total square footage, wall accessibility, and the overall complexity of the mural design. Due to the unique aspects of each mural projects, we ask for the following information before providing our estimates:

-Mural Dimensions (length x width).

-Idea of the mural design. This can be a verbal description, visual reference, or general style).

-Site Photo. We ask for this information to determine the need for additional equipment like scissor or articulating lifts and to take note of wall obstructions (windows, bushes, trees, etc..)

-Wall materials. We ask for this information to determine the ideal paint and materials as a metal surface requires different primers and paints than a rough stucco or smooth concrete surface.

-The mural's location.  We ask for this information to determine if travel costs are necessary

Once our clients have approved the price estimate we send over a contract and deposit invoice for the mural project. We require a 50% deposit to cover the purchase of all supplies, materials, equipment, and artistic services required to commence the mural project. Once we've received the deposit and signed the contract we commence the image development process.

At Bala Creative we specialize in mural concept development based on the project creative needs, the wall's surface, and the dimensions of the mural wall. From the replication of predetermined artwork to specifications, stylistic interpretations, and designs starting from the ground up we've worked on hundreds of successful mural designs that give our clients a clear vision of the project prior to the painting process. For our clients seeking mural development, we offer this service as part of our mural process or as a singular service. We begin the process through a design discussion, developing a general idea of the mural through this discussion that can include inspiration images, predetermined artwork attributes, fonts, or a verbal description. Based on our design discussions, professional opinions, and the mural wall's dimensions we begin development on two digitally rendered explore concepts. Explore concepts help us steer the mural concept in the right direction both stylistically and compositionally. These concepts will denote revisions and design changes as we continue through upwards of two additional design rounds, altering and changes the mural to meet our client's needs. These design round climate with a final full-color mural concept to specification. This final design provides the client with a very strong idea of the final mural painting and our team with a solid roadmap to work from. While the final color concept never looks as good as the mural painting it looks very close to the final product. This process can vary depending on our client's response times, the project scope, and our project schedule. Here are a few examples of our concept development process and the final mural painting for reference.

We work around your schedule to paint murals at a time most convenient to you or your business, working off-hours and weekends if need be. We are well versed in completing mural paintings in short time frames at a high level, for example, we painted a 30'H x 110'W mural in five days for Lagunitas in Las Vegas, Ca. Depending on the murals requirements we work with upwards to three talented muralists on our projects to complete our murals in a timely manner. Our typical mural paintings require five days to two weeks and are painted by our lead muralist, Maxfield Bala.

Our murals are painted with the highest quality mural paints available. Applied by internationally renowned muralists using techniques that ensure a high-quality mural painting for your next commercial, advertising, or public art project. Murals over 13' in height or in difficult to access locations require lift equipment. We ultimately provide the lift equipment as an additional item listed on the mural estimate.



Once the Mural has been completed we require the final payment or remaining balance within 30 days of the project completion.
