W&A is excited to debut our new office signage installed just this week! With the help from local art society groups, W&A set out on a search for a local artist to hand paint our company logo onto the firm’s new office building located in the Southern Mill Complex on Oneta Street. The firm wanted to compliment the historical significance of our new office, which is an adaptive reuse renovation of an old textile mill building.
The Winterville Arts Council was especially helpful to us in this search by introducing us to a local artist, Andrew Patrick Henry. Having studied under Teresa Thurston in Griffin, Georgia as a teen, Andrew has since established a reputation for his work and is well known in our region for his many artistic talents, including his wall murals.
Andrew’s art was part of HBO’s new Sharp Objects series featuring his mural work in Barnesville, Georgia. Andrew has also been involved in international design projects and was part of the team that created an 80-foot-long mural for the original Heineken Brewery in Amsterdam.
W&A was privileged to work with Andrew on this project. He kept the W&A team very involved throughout the entire design and planning stages, ensuring that the vision for the art installation would be authentic to the space and to the firm. The end result was a huge hit with the W&A team! The new signage compliments the masonry features of the new W&A office and gives the exterior added character that pays homage to the historical complex. To learn more about A.P. Henry Design, please visit Andrew’s website at aphenry.com.
