We are delighted to hear that Cut’nCopy, the graphics company who we work with to create and install our vinyl art murals, have won an international award for their work with the Nightingale Project.

The award, presented at a celebration in Hamburg in May 2017, was won in the Interior Design category of the MacTac Creative Awards.

Cut’nCopy have worked with the Nightingale Project on a number of hospital sites. Their work involves painstaking recreations of paintings that we have commissioned for hospitals, in the form of wall coverings which capture the essence of the original artwork in the printed vinyl.
