When clients, suppliers and partners make their way into the MHI HQ, they are now hit with an immediate surprise. The colourful mural that faces them tells a story of Bristol heritage, the growing wave of eCommerce, and a few things you will only notice if you look close enough.

The background:

In a year where the Bristol Street Art Festival, Glastonbury, and Boomtown are once again postponed due to COVID-19, MHI’s co-founder & CEO, Paul Brown, shared his vision with Bristol street artists, Keith Hopewell and KidCrayon, to bring street art back to Bristol. But this time with an MHI angle.

Take a look at the finished mural, as well as our time-lapse footage of the street artists putting their work into motion – and see if you can spot the MHI-related features…

• As UK market leaders in distribution of books and records, it is fitting that we are also passionate about vinyl. You can see MHI co-founder, Alex Lawson, a passionate surfer, listening to his extensive vinyl collection on the beach.

• If you focus on the rolling green hills, you will spot one of our MHI trucks and one of our electric forklifts circling the hill.

• Sitting obediently like the good girl she is, is Maple – our much-loved office hound.

• As previous sponsors of Bristol’s fabled international balloon fiesta, you will see a couple in the air.

• There is no shortage of transport, as you might imagine for an international delivery specialist.

As we make our way out of this pandemic, with more summer days on the horizon, we welcome all our clients, suppliers, and partners to visit us at our HQ and see the mural for themselves when en route to the beaches and hills of the UK.
