EY is one of the Big 4 of consulting. Their Aerocity office is a high profile space, housing the top management and hosting some of the biggest CEOs of India. We designed a flagship experience for this space.

Design

We began with EY’s global guidelines and added several assets customised to India – doodles, signage systems and wall graphics. Apart from this, we helped create several asset classes such as Meeting room naming, Glass graphics, Partner room graphics, History Wall, People Wall and Values Wall. The cafeteria received a special doodle treatment.

Meetings room at EY India are named after famous local places

Across the offices of EY in India, the meeting rooms are named after famous local places. For example, the Bengaluru offices featured Bandipur, Hampi, Badami and other places in South India, while the Pune office featured local places like Raigarh Fort. These helped inspire the cosmopolitan workforce at the organisation with some pointers to travel locally.
