The Mural Commissioning Process
After creating large scale murals for over 30 years our services vary from community projects to private commissions that help support our CIC organisation that offers community projects, training and volunteering opportunities, workshops, exhibitions, and events.
We can provide on-site consultations depending on where you are located or remotely by telephone, conference call or, by email and share photographs of ideas, designs, and details of the site.
It all starts with a blank canvas, so we need to fill it with as much information as you can give us at the beginning.
Questions we will ask:
- Where is the location, town, country
- What is the surface i.e. brick wall, rendered, plastered, wood etc
- What business/ service are you in or is it a personal commission
- The dimensions of the space you want painted
- The kind of design or theme you had in mind
After our initial meeting or contact, we can then offer you an estimated quote on the project which is subject to change. Once agreed we will then prepare a project outline and schedule this would be the time to confirm or make any revisions that may be needed. We collect a non-refundable design fee to start work on the project designs and on completion of the contract we invoice for 1/2 of the painting fee to secure and hold the required dates. If traveling outside of Hampshire England there would be travel costs included in final fee.
Health and Safety / Insurance
The health & safety of our artists and the general public is equally important to our commitment to quality and creativity. All of our artists are fully trained in the use of specialist paints, and of access and lifting machinery and we recommend an induction on site if there is construction around the artists. We can also secure all relevant council issued safety permits, traffic management, scaffolding and we have a £5 million public liability insurance policy in place but can increase to £10 million if requested.
