Concepts to completion

We get a lot of questions about our process and how an enhancements scheme comes together so we thought we would do a post showing some of the stages. Initially (after some meetings and discussions!) we come up with a theme, colour scheme and style that will suit the environment and the people who will be using the space. We produce sketches both simple pencil and photoshop. 

As well as our own ideas we use art workshops and ideas sheets to generate ideas from the people who will be using the space. For our recent scheme in the Children's Community Department at Derby Hospital we asked patients to design their own character and create their own house.

As well as the staff's ideas and input the children's designs feed directly into the scheme.

There has to be a certain amount of flexibility when the original designs are painted onto the walls as spaces change and notice boards that weren't there before appear! But by having a strong story and concept initially we are able to work round any obstacles and hopefully produce the most engaging, interactive and decorative end result possible for the space.
