Sony SN Systems New Office Decor
We worked closely with Sony’s US based designers. The project was coordinated via McFeggan Brown, the Bristol based office refurb and fit out specialist.
McFeggan Brown are a long standing business partner of Think Image. In fact, we’ve provided many of their new office decor projects.
We always get interesting projects from them and this was no exception. Certainly, they know they can trust us to supply high quality display items that wow their clients.
Sony’s SN Systems create tools for games developers. In fact, they’ve been doing it for more than 25 years. Founded in 1990, their long association with Sony began in 1993. The company have provided Windows based development tools for the PlayStation line of consoles. These include the original PlayStation, PS2, PS3, PS4, PlayStation Vita, and PSP. Likewise, the company had also provided tools for the Atari ST, Amiga, Sega Saturn, Sega Genesis/Mega Drive, Super NES, Nintendo 64, GameCube, Game Boy Advance and Nintendo DS.
At first, they started as a 2 person operation. Today, they have grown to become an international company with more than 95 employees. Consequently, the company has been a wholly owned subsidiary of Sony Interactive Entertainment (SIE) since 2005. They consider themselves as ‘highly respected and well connected’.
Their high quality staff members are the key to their success. They describe themselves as an ‘eclectic mix of highly experienced engineers, computer science graduates and former games programmers’. This creates a dynamic work atmosphere that has the feel of a ‘small company’.
As a result, their passion for creating great development tools unify’s the team.
Back lit logo
Sony’s designers came up with some great designs for the reception space. In particular, the PlayStation icons create a fantastic lighting effect. Spanning the wall to the ceiling, the lighting is truly innovative.
We fabricated the PlayStation logo in polished perspex. The back lit LED’s were easy to fit and worked perfectly, creating a subtle glow against the wallpaper.
Several wallpaper options were provided by Sony. Finally, a simple PlayStation icon design was chosen to match with the lighting. The deep blue colour looks great with the PlayStation logo LED’s hitting it.
Reception desk logo
Made from polished acrylic, the 3D reception desk logo came out really well. Indeed, the lettering and PlayStation icons look at home on the bespoke desk.
In conclusion, the items required a high degree of craftsmanship to do them justice.
Never-the-less, the install went smoothly and all involved are very happy.
