Mural & Workspace Design

That's when I was given permission to draw all over the walls!

I joined Optym in December 2014, two months before the grand opening of their headquarters in Gainesville, Florida. It was a new start for the company and for me. My first project was to create illustrations to cover the conference room windows. Each section is a continuous illustration that tells the story of Optym’s focus industries: mine, rail, maritime, trucking, parcel, airline and urban.


  • Illustrated the entirety of international offices' wall-sized vinyl for 30,000 sq. foot Optym's headquarters buildings in the US, Armenia, and India.

  • Delivered on time a fun and comfortable engaging workspaces for 200 co-workers.

  • 82% of the company qualified my work on office design as good or very good (company survey).

"I’d like to thank Sam, Kellie, Artyom and Armen for their great help in recent restructuring works. Without your diligence, hard work, and several late nights and early mornings, we would not have been able to meet our deadline. Moreover,  we not only had the 6th floor ready on time, but it appeared to be very appealing to our co-workers and guests at Grand Opening."
