Getting Creative with Glass Wipe Boards

Posted 3 years ago by The Glass Wipe Board Company Team

An exciting and trend setting sector we have had the pleasure of working within on several occasions is the Media and Broadcast industry.

Our first key client came in the form of none other than the BBC. Working with the BBC – alongside contractors Ruddy Joinery, we were briefed to install a full wall whiteboard in their BBC Television Centre; the first project of its kind and one which began the trend of one our now most requested styles.

It’s no surprise such an iconic British institution would go for something both as striking and creative as a full wall of glass board panels. This hot trend is perfect for those who need to be able to have a space to scribble ideas down whenever they may strike – while also creating a powerful and lasting visual impression for all those who visit.  

And the relationship didn’t stop there – with the BBC continuing to choose The Glass Wipe Board company every year whenever they need new boards.

This work with the BBC clearly set a precedent as, shortly following this initial project with the BBC, we were approached by both ITV and Warner Brothers - impressed with our work and wanting to also use our whiteboards to inject more space for ideas into their offices. As a sector fuelled by creativity combined with the perfect mix of planning, logistics and scheduling – we love being able to provide these clients with high quality wipe boards which allow them to successfully flow from ideas to screen. 

It’s an exciting time for the media industry as a whole right now – with lockdown undoubtably inspiring many artists, creatives and producers to be exploring new ideas and approaches. Its times like these when powerful stories can challenge and inspire us about new perspective and ways of thinking.

Being based in Kent ourselves, here at The Glass Wipe Board Company we’re excited to see the development of this dynamic sector right on our door step – with the recent announcement of plans for entertainment giants Netflix, Amazon and HBO to move into scheduled development of up to 4 TV and film studies being built in Ashford, Kent.

This will see a great boost for the local Kent economy as a whole, as well as being a hugely exciting opportunity for growth within the UK creative and film sector – and we look forward to being there to support them in sparking, exploring and realising their stories and ideas every step of the way.
