Corporate Art – New Challenges, New Solutions

7 February 2014 No Comment

Anyone who has ever used a good art consultant knows that in addition to the expertise they bring to the table, another huge benefit is saving the valuable time of corporate executives. What we’re seeing now is that consulting is becoming more and more relevant to busy executives. Three of the major factors impacting corporate art are:

  • the economy
  • the trend toward more environmentally friendly workspaces
  • rapid innovations in art and how it is displayed

The economy, it seems, has affected everyone in one way or another. In recent years many corporations have reduced their work forces, either through attrition or layoffs or both. Yet day-to-day operations continue as before, which means the amount of work to be done has not decreased. There are just far fewer people left to do it all.

With everyone on staff doing more work than ever before, the demand for art consultant services is at an all time high. Where the time savings might have been considered an added benefit before, it is now deemed vital.

Corporate Art Installation - Part of our Start-to-finish Service

TurnKey Art Solutions handles every aspect of corporate art projects, including professional installation.

The art consulting service at TurnKey Art Solutions has always been offered free of charge, and our clients have always appreciated that. Our job is now even more rewarding because we can help ease at least one burden from dedicated staff members who are already over-worked and stressed out. It’s quite gratifying to see the relief on a client’s face when he or she realizes we literally do everything. We walk them through the entire process to make it easy, so they have one less project to eat up valuable time and create more stress. As well, the CEO is very happy knowing there is no cost involved in the consultation.

Going green has had a profound impact as well. Newer corporate offices tend to have fewer walls in general, and many large blocks of space are separated by half walls or partitions. Traditional interior design simply doesn’t work any more. Achieving the look a client wants requires a different approach. A good art consultant has the knowledge and creative instinct to offer a variety of solutions, such as:

  • how to maximize the available wall space
  • new types of art pieces that will complement and enhance the look you want to achieve
  • creative new presentation methods for traditional art pieces
  • a variety of completely new types of art pieces and display options

In fact, that last item on the list is the third major factor impacting corporate art projects for the modern office. Art has become hi tech. The possibilities these days are virtually endless, and new innovations are appearing on the scene every day.

Mounted Using Standoffs

One example is that we now have the ability to print on practically anything – acrylic, metal, wood, plastic, vinyl, fabric, you name it. The beauty of this is that you can take your own very ordinary images and turn them into something amazing. How many corporate offices have pictures depicting company history hanging on their walls? Instead of making the statement intended, most of them simply look old, dated, and boring. However, you can take such an old image and encase it in acrylic, maybe use an edgy metal frame, and mount it with standoffs, and you won’t recognize that bland old photo any more.

Another option is intelligent glass. We can take your own company images, load them on a computer, and create a rotating display.

This is only the tip of the iceberg, but hopefully it’s enough to give you an idea of the possibilities. It should also give you some idea of the advantages an art consultant can offer. Busy executives don’t have the time to explore what is new on the art scene. Most aren’t interested either. They only know they want the end result to be that certain special look that makes just the right statement for their corporate offices. Without an art consultant, much valuable company time will be wasted, and it’s very possible that some great opportunities will be missed.
