Entry Description: Maxim Integrated Products develops analog integrated circuits for the industrial, communications, consumer, and computing markets. In their San Jose World Headquarters cafeteria, our 10'h x 60'w mural demonstrates how Maxim's breakthrough technology improves people's lives by creating a more integrated world. Informational callouts are superimposed over an intricately-detailed gigapixel image of San Francisco, using eye-catching symbolic icons to draw the viewer into the Maxim story.
