Meet the Client
Martin – creativity unleashed
On the outside of the Jericho building in Balsall Heath is a fantastic piece of graffiti art, encompassing all the different businesses we run. It was produced by a guy called Martin who was a client of ours about 5 years ago.
When Martin arrived, he’d mope around the building with his hoody up, not really making eye contact with anyone. But gradually through his time with us, the hood came down. We discovered that he’s a very good graphic designer and artist, and we helped him set up his own business.
As a thank you he painted the mural – a lasting reminder of potential released to bring life and colour to the community.
