The mural design process begins with the client and Gustafson discussing the desired theme or subject matter for the mural. The mural originates from a client's basic idea and is developed into a series of rough thumbnail sketches. These sketches can easily be sent via E-mail if needed for step-by-step approval or editing. The next step is the final detailed drawing which will receive a client's approval prior to a full color small scale rendering. This scale model, as previous Gustafson mural renderings have shown, will assure accuracy in detail and color for the large full size mural. Murals are priced based on a combination of square footage, complexity, and type of paint required (indoor or outdoor).
