Grafico-Walls has been producing custom print wallpapers, wall art and mosaic tiles for over 10 years. You may have seen them on ‘The Block’ over several seasons assisting contestants to transform their spaces. They have just completed the current season.
Grafico Group is Melbourne based and is run by husband and wife team, Damian and Adele Corney. Damian is the creative director and a graphic designer by trade, whilst Adele, his wife, runs some of the day to day operations including accounts and finances.
Damian Corney, founder and CEO of Grafico Group says…
“We were in a crazy place back in March with so many jobs being put on hold or cancelled. We were spending a lot of time at home working and trying to keep the business running through a crazy unprecedented time. We sort out to create a product to initially keep our 4-year-old daughter Alessia busy at home during lockdown. As a result, the “colour-me whiteboard wallpaper prints” were invented!
The product was a hit with our daughter, and therefore we thought it would be the perfect lockdown activity for parents of all ages. We launched the product in March and it’s been a very popular activity all around Australia. It’s even been a great de-stressing family activity for our whole family over lockdown, spending hours colouring in over various months. Being like a whiteboard has allowed us to re-colour in the print as required. So it seems facing adversity does breed creativity!”
