Founded in Norfolk, Cornwall Insight provide market intelligence, consultancy, and training services for the energy and water sectors.
Established back in 2005 from the home of founder Nigel Cornwall (hence the name!), the company has gone on to become a market leader within the UK energy market. Testament to Cornwall Insight’s reputation in the sector, top UK politicians regularly use their expert research as an invaluable source of reference to support topical debates.
After outgrowing their old office in 2018, Cornwall Insight made the decision to move into a brand new city-centre workplace.
The Cornwall Insight team wanted to put their own stamp on their new office with some branded, bespoke interior artwork. They were keen to create an aesthetically pleasing environment where staff and visiting clients would immediately feel at home.
Typical of the hard work we put into every project we’re a part of, Cornwall Insight were impressed by the vinyl artwork we had designed for the former residents of the office. Assured by the quality of our work, they entrusted us with the task of designing their new space.
Keen to place the Cornwall Insight brand at the heart of the project, we worked with the team and their existing brand guidelines to set about creating different design concepts for each area of the office. From start to finish we provided a fully managed service; designing and creating the artwork and sourcing, engaging and liaising with the sign-makers to make the installation run as smoothly as possible.
To introduce visiting clients to the company’s ethos, we presented their brand vision in the reception area alongside their logo. Alongside this, we designed a feature wall adorned with custom illustrated wallpaper for a real ‘wow’ factor and to give visitors something interesting to view whilst waiting for meetings.
To fit with some of Cornwall Insight’s existing creative illustrations, the design depicted a bright and colourful illustrative countryside scene, where different energy sources can be found incorporated between the rolling green hills and bright blue sky. Keep an eye out for the illustration on the slide to the right, it’s well worth a look!
We took safety and privacy into account when designing Cornwall Insight’s glass meeting rooms and offices. Frosted strips with coloured cutouts were placed at industry-regulated heights to make sure offices were both safe and stylish, while frosted photographic panels were chosen around the theme of ‘earth, air, fire and water’ to shroud the conference rooms and ensure meetings could be conducted in peace.
We also produced several external directional signs to make sure clients and collaborators could easily find Cornwall Insight’s new work-space.
We worked to create a cohesive interior that made use of the space and Cornwall Insight’s office furniture. As part of this, we arranged for each office door to be covered in Cornwall Insight’s bold vermilion; tying the colours of each area of the office together.
With the work now complete, the Cornwall Insight team have made themselves at home and are continuing to enhance their fantastic reputation and grow their success.
