Partnership with Time Warner Cable Business Class Illuminates GPI Design’s Innovative Art

Customer Since 2009



For Tom Lawrence, creating bright works of art has always been at the heart of his business. Lawrence is the founder of GPI Design, a boutique lighting art and design firm based in the Cleveland, Ohio, area. GPI’s team of engineers and designers create unique backlit features that accentuate commercial spaces including building lobbies, hotels, casinos, and restaurants. Using a variety of translucent materials – from the more conventional fabrics and glass to exotic stones, resins and wood – GPI crafts distinctive projects ranging in scale from reception desks to entire floors and walls. GPI’s lighted creations currently illuminate spaces all over the world. With high-speed Internet and phone solutions from Time Warner Cable Business Class since 2009, this growing business can connect with clients and design teams in real time, no matter their physical location.“We do a lot of work…all over the U.S. and around the globe,” Lawrence says. “Time Warner Cable Business Class gives us the reliable connectivity we need to operate like a global company.”



GPI complements its unique art with Time Warner Cable Business Class Business Phone and Business Internet. Conference calling on crystal clear phone lines is fundamental to GPI’s day-to-day interactions with global clients and design teams. High-speed Internet is used through every step of the creative process, whether employees are tracking new leads from their website or transferring large files in the form of sketches and design plans. Lawrence sought a communications provider that would offer his business the same dependability and quality of service as larger firms would employ.“With our previous provider, we had connectivity issues. Lawrence says. “Time Warner Cable Business Class has always been there for us, right away.”



Lawrence says Time Warner Cable Business Class solutions have helped GPI Design become more competitive. The ability to communicate through conference calling saves GPI money and time that would otherwise be spent traveling to design meetings. A team full of perfectionists, GPI Design will never stop striving to “accomplish something that’s never been created” with their art, Lawrence says, and he looks to a continued partnership with a dependable communications provider to help the business achieve new and amazing works of art.“Time Warner Cable Business Class has allowed us to be even more creative. They allow us an opportunity to share ideas,” says Lawrence. “They’ve been instrumental in our growth as a small company.”
