Computer-generated Wall Murals

computer generated muralWall décor has come far in recent years. No longer are you limited to just paint or wallpaper as even the most unusual objects, textures and designs can be used to enhance a wall’s appearance. As a graphic designer, you understand the value of well-placed colors and objects on a digital canvas, so why not use your creative and technical skills to create unique and distinctive wall murals for yourself or others?

Whether the wall is in a kitchen, bathroom or a kid’s room, a mural can bring style and finesse to a room and give it a personality all its own. Many businesses have murals in their reception areas, and murals can be seen in the offices of pediatricians and other medical specialists. A mural design can be inspired from a favorite story or play, a favorite hobby, the interior design theme of a room or wherever your creativity takes you.

You can easily take your own designs and turn them into wall murals easily using software such as Adobe Illustrator. There are online tutorials that detail how to design a mural as well as instructions on how to transfer your original graphic design onto a transparency and use a projector to help place the image on a wall. If you do not wish to use the transparency/projector method or want easy way to remove the design from a wall, you can always contact a local print shop to print your design on vinyl sticker paper. This method is perfect for bold, abstract designs and lettering.

Wall murals are fun and creative ways to liven up a room, office or any wall space that could use a fresh look reflective of your personality and style. Graphic designers are sure to enjoy the larger-than-life imagery they can create with their own hands and once finished, they have a portfolio piece that is one-of-a-kind, as well as in demand.
