a splash of colour for open universities australia / by Liana Slussareff


As abstract painter Hans Hofmann once said ‘Colours must fit together as pieces in a puzzle or cogs in a wheel’ and that’s exactly what Open Universities Australia achieved with this bold and vivacious design. 

Every room within this fit-out has a different story to tell which creates an exciting workplace for all employees and an obvious talking point for new visitors to the space.

A mix of print and application techniques have been used on this project to maximise on the boldness and use of colour. Sometimes a cut vinyl film will have a more vibrant hue whereas a custom printed wallpaper can add character and texture to a space, ultimately it comes down to choosing the right technique that will champion your design. 

As our suppliers are continuously creating new materials and products for us to play with, this in-turn gives us the opportunity to experiment with new printing and finishing techniques that we can offer you.
