In order to tell you our story, we have to tell you a little bit about our clients first. Alexion are a Multinational Pharmaceutical Company who are focused on developing and delivering life-transforming therapies for patients with devastating and rare diseases. After spending any amount of time working with Alexion, it’s clear to see they are driven and inspired by their patients, as stated on their website “Patients with rare diseases are our guiding star. They inspire us every day to find answers, and we act with integrity, urgency, and discipline because we know their lives are at stake.”


This passion is not just evident in their words but also their actions. Alexion approached us with the concept of sharing their patient success stories with everyone in their Athlone offices, after all, it’s easy to get bogged down in the day to day workings, but every now and then it’s good to take a step back, look up and see what your work can lead to.


The project was well suited to the services we offer here at The Printed Image and can be broken down into 4 key deliverables:


Alexion knew exactly what they wanted, but needed it converted and transformed into product ready artwork. Combining their comprehensive brief with our creative team adept at conceptualising the clients vision, we were able to produce high quality finished art ready for print.


This project involved 9 patient stories printed on Foamex along with 4 different large-scale vinyl designs. There were multiple prints of each, so as you can imagine, it could be easy to get mixed up. Thankfully, our production department work hand in hand with everyone involved in each step of the manufacturing process, right through to logistics, to ensure every project is completed to the highest standard and no detail is overlooked.


Our install team are compliant with all safety certification and are fully insured to work indoor, outdoor and to any height. They are fully flexible with times for install, this allowed us to work with Alexion’s opening and closing times to get the project finished within it’s deadline.

Account Management:

The Printed Image prides itself in the vast array of services we offer our clients, but a variety of services doesn’t have to mean half a dozen contacts to see through completion. This project was managed through one point of contact across different services, this ensures a clear channel of communication throughout the project.


The result is an office environment that serves as a reminder to the team at Alexion of the positive outcomes of their efforts. It keeps the team focussed on the big picture objectives and maintains the level of staff engagement. The environment also allows them to tell the Alexion story in a meaningful way with any stakeholders who visit their premises.
This project is an excellent example of how The Printed Image can take you through an entire project from start to finish all while having one point of contact to ensure efficiency, accuracy and consistency, vital elements when looking for success.


The Printed Image were a fantastic partner to work with on this project, they really did a tremendous job in bringing some of our patient stories to life and are a reminder to our employees every day of the life changing impact their achievements have. Michael Teehan
