Manifold Murals

Item details

I was hired to design and paint these office murals for Manifold, a developer marketplace startup. They're a "remote reliant" company, so most of their team is spread out across the world, but they do have a small group working out of their Halifax, Canada office and I was excited to help brighten the space.

I spent a lot of time talking to the Manifold team, working to find the simplest words that describe their complex (to me) biz model. Basically, they told me this industry has always been a walled garden—developers are limited to a monocloud, with large companies dictating which services they can use.

Manifold works to break down walls between developers and the services easily available to them, and to build the future of how developers will work. I love the juxtaposition of Break and Build. With Manifold's brand featuring gradients, I spent many hours on the floor of the paint store, testing swatches and picking colors that would blend seamlessely both on the 2 walls of hand lettered type and the center logo wall.

Vibrant hand lettered murals and maps

I'm an independent hand lettering artist based in Denver (but I travel often!)

I specialize in painting large-scale, vibrant words across walls. I love to feature favorite local spots in the form of hand-drawn maps and names of places.

I'm available for freelance projects like murals, photo booth backdrops, and signage.
