Monsters Take Over Valpo Dash

A couple months ago I was asked to design graphics for the Valpo Dash station. It was an incredible opportunity to get my artwork on a neat surface. That surface being a shipping container. The wheels were spinning and I thought of all the things I wanted to do. I got the green light to do whatever I wanted to do and so naturally it was going to be monsters. The Valpo Dash bus takes Valpo residents back and forth to Chicago. Its a great alternative to driving to the city everyday. I knew I wanted something bright and colorful. I sketched out some ideas and settled on this design. I shot it over and got the thumbs up. 


Once I had some idea down on paper. I had to get accurate measurements. Luckily the company wrapping the box had those. There were a couple challenges with windows and door seams but overall it was a pretty straight forward design... so I thought. 

The designer at the printing company had to go on site and remeasure a couple times and then since the shipping container was corrugated the design had to be stretched and pulled in the main file in order to get it all to fit properly. I think it turned out great. To date the front is only done and the sides are set to be completed once it gets nice out. There were also four bike lockers that I got to put artwork on and the faces look great. The final artwork is super bright and colorful. I wanted to be sure you could see it from the road. If you're in the area check it out!
