For healthcare brand Merck’s office space in Philadelphia, the client wanted to activate the space with custom artwork and branding elements that felt tied to their ethos and locality.
I developed a mural design for the open seating lounge area that was loosely inspired by art deco compositions, paying tribute to the architecture of the deco-era building construction. The mural geometry was also deconstructed from the shape of Merck’s logo, and brand colors were added to bring color into the space.
Other unique and local-centric details in the space include framed photography of local Philadelphia architectural cityscapes as well as a neon behind reception to inspire a unique branded welcome moment.
