projects that foster work
CAMILLE WALALA’s EAST LONDON STUDIO
Camille Walala, London based artist, designer, and founder of Walala Studio recently moved into a new studio and knew that magnetic wallcoverings would be a must. Camille has a very colorful and playful workflow, including cutting pieces of paper as an organic approach to discovering new patterns and spending hours creating large scale mood-boards across the magnetic wallcoverings of that span her studio walls. When you enter her studio, it is almost as if that you have stepped into the creative mind of this vibrant, trailblazing artist; with collages of her visual inspiration, and high-intensity pattern surrounding you as you explore the space. Walala Studio’s Creative Producer, Julia Jomaa uses Foster wallcoverings on a daily basis too, but with a different method. Julia’s role requires heightened organization as she coordinates every detail of the studio’s projects with the goal to bring even Camille’s most ambitious ideas to life. She describes herself as a highly visual person, so to keep the projects on track, she surrounds herself with calendars and color-coded lists that evolve in real-time, acting as a functional backdrop to her workstation area.
For the Foster magnetic wallcoverings in her studio, Camille Walala chose our Connect: Dot-Grid Dry Erase in the Astro finish. For accessories, Camille specified custom colors for the Workflow Collection Note Layers (to match a huge Walala painted mural in the entrance) and added our Magnetic Wall Planners by Poketo in the color Teal. Also featured in her space is our Polarity Collection in Pop-Color.

DOMINIO MAGAZINE HQ
Domino Magazine's HQ recently got a makeover. The new design features our Foster dry erase wall coverings in their large meeting room. The Domino team shares a love for grids and color, so they picked our dry erase wall coverings, pairing our 4" grid top and bottom with our 1" dot grid running along the center. The Calendar Workflow layer pack (in custom colors) + Polarity collection finishes off the look and adds to the functionality of perfect for a busy team.
Holyrad Studio serves as a workspace for artists across disciplines – with live event activations, photo shoots and art exhibitions all taking place within the multifunctional space. Holyrad’s identity as an incubator for the creative process calls for a space that fosters the collaborative flow of work, with the flexibility to adapt to many channels of expression and communication.
Holyrad’s founder Daryil Oh enlisted Visual Magnetics as a design partner, and producer, of the magnetic dry-erase wall covering to outfit the space’s feature wall. The pristine surface is a stark visual contrast to the space’s unfinished cement, and functionally, juxtaposes the photography studio and event space, as a central location for collaborative work. . The addition of a Visual Magnetics surface creates a designated destination for brainstorming, central location for noting team announcements, and the perfect place to magnetically post client projects.
