MetLife Headquarters

Environmental Graphics

Overhauling headquarters in New York and Tokyo to compete for top talent, MetLife was ready to shed any semblance of stuffiness.

Designing and overseeing production of environmental graphics for a total of more than 1 million combined square feet, we touched everything from multi-story murals to restroom signage. With a relatively open-ended brief, we were guided by the client’s demand that the 7,000 affected employees be “smacked in the face with beauty” at every turn. We tried to do just that, drawing upon cultural influences from everywhere in the world that MetLife does business and utilizing a wide array of materials and production techniques.
