Somerville Mobile Farmers Market Truck Graphics

Shape Up Somerville asked me to design and paint graphics on the side of their program’s market truck to increase visibility while they traveled from one market location to the next. Though I had never painted truck graphics before, local mural painters offered tips and recommended supplies. We painted chalkboards on the truck sides for the market manager to write out the daily produce and prices and asked children at the local community center to draw their favorite food, which gave us the small illustrations of fruits and vegetables. Working closely with the program organizers and with the painting help of the market coordinator, the project bloomed.

The truck was retired after 3 years and replaced with a donated van. I was asked to design the vinyl wrap graphics.
