Office Murals Make A Powerful Impact On The Workplace
Bala Creative specializes in the painting of office murals. Being from the San Francisco, Bay Area we've had the opportunity to work with a wide variety of clients within the tech industry including social media giants, start ups and hardware companies. These clients often call the City of San Francisco, Palo Alto, Sunnyvale, San Jose and Mountain View their home. Each company projects a unique brand message seeking to differentiate with a unique take on their forward facing marketing and internal environment for potential client, partners and employees. It's this internal office environment our clients are most often seeking to enhance with a mural painting that expresses a brand vibe, or company message. It's no secret that murals enhance any environment their painted in, an office space just happens to be one pertinent example of this fact. Studies show the murals make a direct impact on office environments. Various studies have shown that offices with artwork and murals increase productivity in the workplace and help reduce burnout when compared to offices who don't possess artwork or murals within the workplace. A study in specific performed by Viking shows that more than half or 53% of workers said having art in the office makes them happier. Another 54% said art should be in every workplace. Arguably a happier employee should translate to a friendlier workplace simply by the addition of art, and in our case a mural painting. These studies in a more broad sense have shown that art in general helps to reduce anxiety and depression. A study by BMC Health involving over 22,500 participants showed that the presence of art showed a decrease in the feeling on anxiety by 71% and a decrease in depression by 73%. Additionally, 78% of respondents in a survey of over 800 employees working 32 major United States companies claimed that artwork in the workplace helped reduce stress. Aside from the positive mental and physical effects that artwork and murals may provide, the aesthetic of murals can communicate a strong message to potential employees, partners, and clients in the workplace. A hand painted mural in the office shows individuals a level of culture, professionalism and passion that surrounds the company. A blank white wall can become a message of empowerment for employees, communicate a culture to the workforce, drive home an aesthetic for partners or promote a level of class to potential investment of partners. Murals show a dedication in a variety of means that other office enhancements cannot. Here are a variety of examples of murals we've painted for our clients offices throughout the San Francisco Bay Area and throughout Silicon Valley.
