Library windows with bicycle decals For three years now, we have been busy preparing new bicycle decals for the Tour Down Under in the library. The Tour Down Under is a great event in the Adelaide Hills. The community is keen to participate in many levels. We have had a long cooperation with the Coventry Library in Stirling and it is great to come up with something new every year for this event. Bicycle decals can come in many shapes and sizes: In 2014 and 15 we designed a true community involvement: Bicycle decals represented mountain bikes, city bikes with shopping baskets, kids bikes, bikes for mums with baby carriers, you name it, it was on the window. In 2016 it was all about competition: decals on the window show the competitive spirit of the game. Riders in action with a contemporary take on movement and speed. One of the best part of these project is all the comment we get from library visitors! We love them!

Conveyancing office signage This conveyancing office signage project for Tuckfields conveyancing involved many different parts. Tammy and her team was creative and fun to work with. We created outdoor signage with their logo, which was fastened to the fascia of the building. Branded their main entrance. Installed self adhesive lettering for trading hours and contact information. The office window needed some privacy, so we created a word art decal listing their services on the window. Inside the office we designed a word art decal for the CEO's wall. This was made up of very personal words of her choice and turned out to be exactly how she wanted it. In the general office space we installed value word decals, wall quote decals and 3D acrylic lettering.
Bay end features This bay end features project is one of the many great areas we have worked on in the Hamra Centre Library. The goal was to create focus areas for certain book collections. We worked closely with the wonderful Collections Coordinator of the library, Hanna. Our team has designed bay end feature decals, shelf signage and book stickers. The following collections have been highlighted: Shakespeare Craft Community languages SA environment Australian History Travel One of the frequently asked questions in the library was about classic literature. People had a difficult time finding them among other books. We highlighted the areas with bay end decals. The books themselves now all have the "classics" sticker on them for easy identification. materials used: self adhesive polyester fabric for the decals. Digitally printed and contour cut. self adhesive vinyl for the book stickers. Digitally printed and contour cut.
Library feature wall We have been asked to design a library feature wall in Para Hills. The library grouped some of their books into four sections and created small alcoves for a quiet reading spaces. The aim of the project was to name the four distinct areas and to list all subjects, which can be found in that specific area. The great big yellow wall was an wonderful background to work on. We decided on contour cutting the words, so the original wall colour can show up behind. The colours of the decals have been chosen to incorporate with the library's colour scheme. Each section of the word art in this library feature wall incorporates all the subject words, which can be found in that reading section. This way it is not purely informative, but also serves as a wonderful decoration of the space. The Para Hills Library is a great modern space for the community. Make sure you pop by when in the area. materials used: self adhesive polyester fabric, digitally printed and contour cut
Frosted effect decals on glass This lovely Lutheran School needed a welcoming touch at the new library entrance. We used contour cut frosted effect decals on the glass wall. A little boy and a girl sitting under a tree, reading. The image is very subtle in appearance. The leaves of thee drift away showing the way into the library space. The colours were chosen from the colour palette of the carpets. We printed the image onto the frosted effect film and it is visible from both sides of the glass. The image is contour cut, so the glass is completely clear all around it. materials used: frosted effect, self adhesive film. Digitally printed and contour cut, applied onto glass
We were asked to create a welcoming children's area feature wall at the Len Beadell Library in Salisbury. We had a wonderful conversation with staff, who had many ideas for the wall. When we created the design, we have taken into consideration, that the artwork should be light in feel and appeal to a mixed age group. We have chosen to work with the colours of the wall and the carpet as this creates a harmonious space, and these features are perhaps more permanent than the primary coloured storage units. Also these colours are more contemporary and work well with the timber ceiling feature. The artwork is contemporary, and uses imaginative elements vs realistic or cartoon-like figures. The small boy and a bit older girl could be any of the children coming to the library, it is not limited to a particular race, colour, hair or clothing style. We have incorporate the alphabet as the first step for little children towards books. While the leaves are mainly green, the other leaf colours and the letters growing on the tree take it from the park to an imaginary world. As the wind blows the leaves, it blows together some random letters to create inspiring words for all of us to read and remember. As our eyes wonder over to the green wall, the leaves become even more abstract - only outlines and finally arrive to the slightly longer quote. The children's area feature wall decals, were really well received by library visitors and staff. The library also has a wonderful section, where the Friends of the Library sell books. Many visitors did not even know about the bookshop, until signage went up. Hope it will bring [...]
Spice up the meeting rooms with office wall decals! We used one of our standard decal products (playing round) to create a very cost effective office wall decoration. Five meeting rooms needed a bit more life at the new office of Andersons Solicitors. We selected some fun colour combinations together with the the client and applied the circle decals to differentiate the meeting rooms. Office wall decals can easily add interest to the white walls and will make clients feel more at ease. This project was so successful, that we repeated this in their Reynella offices as well, just south of the city. Meetings are not boring anymore...

Sale Sale Sale! You want everyone to know about it! These large (1m diametre) sale shop window signs will do the talking. They are visible from the busy road. The shop window signs have been applied from the outside of the glass with matte vinyl to minimise reflection and maximise effectiveness. The simple design of the shop window decal works well with merchandise of this high end childen's store.
We have been asked to create a library wall decal at the Sunrise Christian School. A happy wind-blown tree wall decal was chosen by the school together with Winnie the Pooh wall quote. Library wall decals are a great addition to School Libraries, as they can be as permanent or as temporary as the school wants it. Students and staff enjoy the renewed space but the decal removes easily when time comes. Quote decals are always a favorite in libraries, but as you can see adding a bit of nature just makes the space even more interesting. It is interesting to know, that wall decals can also be applied to glass or any smooth surface.
The fitout of the new office space for Wellness & Lifestyle was designed by Koush Design. WallsThatTalk was approached to produce and install window decals for the meeting rooms and to provide logo and branding on the wall behind the reception counter. The colours for the meeting room window decals have been carefully adjusted to match the colours of the carpet and create a playful effect. The 3D acrylic lettering in the reception area reflect the quality of the brand and create visual interest.
Russell and Yelland Architects recently designed the new classroom building for the redevelopment of St John Bosco School. Their interior designer wanted to add a little touch of playfulness in the four classroom areas. The overall scheme for the project was quite earthy with natural colours and textures, so the birch tree silhouettes in muted tones worked well. A few flying swallows completed the look. The result was a very cost effective solution for the client that harmonised well with the room and just added a little 'something special' to the project.
Studio Tonic (an Adelaide based interior design company) approached us to be involved with this fantastic project. COMIC Foundation is a charity that raises funds to create child friendly spaces in the mental health wards of hospitals and clinics. We worked closely with the design team to create a fun environment while still displaying the COMIC Foundation branding (the flower motif) throughout the space. The colour scheme was closely linked to the interior fitout and detailing of the furniture that was created for the space. We coordinated with various trades to complete the project which involved decals on walls and windows, painted detailing on concrete, large powder coated flower cut-outs and a plaque to acknowledge the contributions of the many business involved.
Windows and glass doors provide a fantastic opportunity to present your company branding but they can also pose problems with privacy and security. These are just a few examples of the possibilities available. We worked with both these clients and provided them with a solution that consisted of only partial frosting to give some areas that were obscured while still allowing light to enter. The company logos and branding was incorporated into the designs and colour schemes.
The fitout of the new consulting rooms for the Glenelg Podiatry Clinic was designed by Koush Design. WallsThatTalk was approached to produce and install the large super-graphic and logo on the wall behind the reception counter. The graphic utilises the footprint artwork which comes from the clinic's branding. Colours were adjusted to ensure that the printed wall paper would blend into the overall colour scheme. The result is a striking graphic element that accentuates the generous proportions of the room.
This striking wall mural was commissioned as part of an upgrade of the Youth area at the West Torrens Council's Hamra Library. The brief was to create a design utilising geometric shapes which interacted with each other. Some areas were to be left free from colour. We also liked the idea of 'hiding' more shapes within the negative spaces of the design. Once you start to look you can see these shapes throughout the mural. The colour scheme was chosen to work closely with the new furniture colours being introduced.
This exciting project was commissioned by the Goodwood Library to replace an old, and quite dated artwork on a large wall in the library. Initially they were unsure about what they wanted but after our initial discussions it became clear that inspirational quotations was the appropriate direction. We worked closely with the client to create a dynamic and exciting wall mural based on a selection of quotes they had compiled. Several design options were presented before the client settled on the final design concept. The colour pallet was chosen to work with the existing scheme within the library. The result is a dramatic and inspiring wall that is sure to make people smile each time they read something different within it.
The Stirling Community Room located in the Adelaide Hills Council's Stirling Library was looking for a creative way to communicate information when they approached us. We worked closely with them to refine the concept which was to offer some permanent quotes and also to integrate some white board areas which could be used during meetings and presentations. Large speech bubbles of special white-board, dry erase vinyl were used to achieve the desired result.
The South Australian Whale Centre wanted to display their logo and create a multi-lingual welcome feature wall in their historic Victor Harbor headquarters. We worked closely with them to collect and translate many of the languages featured. The lower half of the wall depicts many of the local species of marine animals found in the waters of southern Australia.
When Scotch College asked us to create a feature wall in their boarding house we began by developing the idea of a collection of speech bubbles to present a selection of motivational sayings and quotes. The inspiration for the colour scheme came from the school logo and branding colours. Various size repetitions of the same speech bubble create a crisp and striking decorative pattern on what was a very large, plain wall. The effect is playful without feeling overly cluttered.
This playful project was commissioned as part of an upgrade of the toy library. We worked closely with the client to create a fun forest theme that children would love. The project had a challenging colour pallet for us to work with together with a very tight budget. We were able to deliver a solution that the client loved that worked with the colour scheme and also met the budget constraints.
When the Director of RealTime CEO approached us to create a dramatic design in the company's boardroom, he already had a very clear idea of what he wanted. He had seen some decals in a very sleek, modern office environment which used very bright contemporary colours to covey some thought provoking quotes. He initially wanted to try and replicate this look in his boardroom. After looking at the space and really identifying what he wanted to achieve, we suggested a slightly different approach. The final concept came from the idea of the transmission of thoughts and ideas - hence the theme of 'wires'. The quotes are hung off the central wires that visually wrap around the whole space. The colours are muted and work beautifully with the earthy tonings of the room. The result is a unique solution that captures the feel of the inspiration but presents it in a new, sympathetic way.
2012 was the National Year of Reading. Walls That Talk created a range of lively decals based on the official logo for the year-long event. These decals were able to be adapted to suit a variety of applications and were installed in many libraries and schools across the country. The National Year of Reading Campaign was aimed at increasing the enjoyment of reading a in all areas of the community. The decals were used a s a visual reminder of the enjoyment that can be gained from reading and were an important part raising the public awareness of the campaign.
These fun decals are not only enjoyable for the children who attend these centres to look at, but also carry educational themes. We worked closely with the directors and teaching staff to create images that were age appropriate for the different areas and included themes of the seasons, what to wear at different times of the year and also nature and animal motives too.
Library decals are popular for school libraries. Forest themes and a contemporary word art mural were features of this recent project. The library space was transformed with the simple addition of some well placed wall decals. Tag cloud type of art typography is easy to create with wall decals.
The Stitching Circle is a specialist sewing and craft boutique located in Mount Barker in the Adelaide Hills. When the new store was being established, the owner engaged WallsThatTalk to create the branding and all associated signage for the store. External signage was designed to clearly identify the store from the street and had to work within the local council's heritage guidelines for the streetscape. Everything from window decals, A-frames, wall decals, price tags, stickers and labels, business stationary and shop fittings was designed, created and produced by WallsThatTalk within a very tight timeline. The result is a very striking and different brand that is easily identifiable and flexible enough to meet the client's needs as the business grows.
