I try to help friends when possible. In this case, buddy Nick had been working with me on several fabrication projects with client Barrelhouse 101. Nick had talked about striking out on his own as a plumber at some point. Fast forward a year…the time had come. Nick needed help and needed it fast. I (and my creative partner) had been developing a new process called BrandStorm…a creative process with the speed of Tesla’s “Insane Mode”. Knocked it out in 1.5 days. Now he’s asking for a vehicle wrap. Maybe it’s time to fix my leaky faucet!
Nick wanted a vintage look. I agreed and found a stock illustration that had a touch of constructivism which gave it a very confident tone. Nick wanted to keep everything on a black background. As hip as it may be, I’m a little hesitant to continue (in future) with the basic black background color. Especially with the vehicle wrap. It may look too sinister. Perhaps a warmer earthtone color will help. We shall see.
