Chris Ashmore, the Director of Creative Murals and Portraits, specialises in creating unique murals for any wall or surface and has brought bespoke ideas to life in people’s homes and businesses all over the UK. He recently visited the Milton Keynes headquarters of tesa® UK, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of technical adhesive tapes, to paint a new feature wall that celebrates the company’s heritage and development.
The feature will be one of the first things visitors and guests see when they are welcomed to the site, as will many members of staff who will see the feature every day. With this in mind, the design showcases the history of tesa through the evolution of the logo and brand; the aim being to inform and inspire in equal measure. Each of the company’s logos since inception are present, with the current and most recognised ‘finger lift’ rendition featured prominently front and centre.
After coming across his work online, and hearing that he was a vocal supporter of their products, tesa® began sponsoring Ashmore and they had no hesitation in commissioning him for their own project. Donna Smith, Trade Marketing Manager, says “We were very impressed with the work of Creative Murals and Portraits online, and were pleased to discover that tesa played an integral part in the process. When we found ourselves in need of a vibrant wall decoration to welcome guests to our headquarters, Chris was the obvious person to contact and we are delighted with the finished result”.
Ashmore, who regularly posts designs and tips to over 48,000 social media followers, was more than happy to lend his talents to tesa, he said “To have such a huge company trust me to provide a feature wall, the first thing visitors and guests to the site will see, feels fantastic.”
He continued, “I have been an ambassador of tesa products for some time, they stick to walls and freshly dried paint in a way no other tape can, with just the right amount of adhesion for a perfect precision edge finish. It doesn’t bend when pulled straight which allows me to minimize using a straight edge and drawing lines when applying or mid-project. It tears easily when I want it to and the thinness allows me to see my pencil marks underneath, allowing greater visibility for using my craft knife on tiny details. Whether it’s a skirting board on a multiple day job or a quick stripe, thick durable paint or thin spray paint, tesa tape is so versatile it always does the job”.
