The potential for digital wallpaper is enormous, particularly when it comes to corporate interiors.
Back in the day, and not that long ago, corporate wallpaper was stylish but staid. It was mostly mass-produced and predictable. While off-the-shelf designs are certainly more exciting than they used to be, it is predominantly custom-printed digital wallpaper that is making its mark today.
Make a Statement With Digital Wallpaper
Digital wallpaper is undoubtedly the best option for making a statement in corporate interiors, including office environments and showrooms. A photograph of your primary product, blown up to cover the wall, or a portion of it, will draw immediate attention and add an incredible wow factor. Alternatively, a series of smaller digital images, arranged together can create an amazing effect.
Digital wallpaper is ideal for custom branding of products and businesses. It’s a great way to identify what the business is or what it stands for, because anything you like can be included in the design. Use your logo, mission statement, pictures of products, or images that inspire those working in the office. Or have a graphic designer or professional digital printing company design office wallpaper that incorporates signage to identify where people are in the building, or where they should go to get there.
It is also easy to use digital wallpaper to create ambiance in an office, by using pictures of tranquil scenes or inspirational places. Inspiring messages may also be incorporated – or just simple words.
Original drawings and illustrations may also be used to make digital wallpaper.
A Few Examples of the Best Digital Wallpaper and Murals Worldwide
While not all murals and wall art, or even lettering, are created digitally, digital printing is one of the most versatile technologies available to us today. It’s certainly quicker and more cost effective than painting murals directly onto walls. Apart from anything else, digital wallpaper can be reproduced, so if there is deterioration to the wall over time it can be replaced.
These examples embrace the possibilities digital wallpaper offers in general.
Sephore, the old, well established French chain of cosmetics stores is one of many to display its company principles on its office walls. In the San Fransisco HQ, a plain wall has been used to state what is important, in words displayed from ceiling to floor: “expertise, teamwork, initiative, passion, balance, innovation, respect.” What could be simpler?
Then there’s a young construction company in Kiev, Ukraine. Their offices have the feel of a contemporary industrial style, with lots of glass and steel, exposed concrete and screeded concrete floors.

The work environment at the Unilever offices in Sydney aims to inspire sustainable living in an energetic workplace where employees can connect.
