Telecommunications uninspiring? Don’t bank(sy) on it

~ Foehn commissions artist to jazz up office space to create the right impression ~

London, 25 September 2012 – Business communications provider, Foehn, has challenged the traditional view of communications providers by commissioning four pieces of bespoke wall art by artist, Mario Socrates, for its new office space.

The project came about due to the company’s founder, James Passingham, wanting to do things differently and challenge any perception that technology providers were dry and dull. Artist, Mario Socrates from Caught-on-Canvas, used Foehn’s logo to inspire pieces of art created in a modern graffiti-style.

“It’s surprising how many technology companies say they are modern and creative but their offices don’t tell the same story. We wanted some vibrant, interesting artwork that reflected our young, innovative approach and would brighten up the offices for our staff and visitors,” explained James Passingham, founder and md of Foehn. “We’re really pleased with the creative artwork that reflects our uniqueness as a company.”

“Foehn were really easy to work with and are a really personable bunch,” said Mario Socrates of Caught-on-Canvas. “They gave me freedom to be innovative which is great for an artist and refreshing to have a telecoms company that was ready to play with creativity.”
