Who can forget the mouth-watering images of last year’s Waffle Cakes’ food truck (bus)wrap…definitely not the crew here at Soapoint. So, it was no shock to us when the fine folks at Waffle Cakes contacted us about their need to add an additional food trailer to their fleet. Our designers created a coordinating wrap which echoed the same visual treats and brand recognition as the original food truck. This optical existence ensures that the consumers of Waffle Cake’s can always identify and locate their favorite sweet treat. The tasty bait of this new, mobile mini-trailer will be available and offered at smaller events such as farmer’s markets and limited space, local events. This coordinating addition to Waffle Cakes wheeled ‘waffle-mobiles’ is the perfect solution for those times when the larger, full-stock food truck would not be practical. Plus, Waffle Cakes can now be in two places at one time…and that is definitely a delicious notion to have. See the complete before and after transformation on our Flickr page.
High Times Magazine’s annual Cannabis Cup has been occurring annually for the past 26 years. However, 2013 became the first ever year for the event to be held on American soil. This year’s ‘best of the best’ showcase was held in Colorado’s own Mile High City, Denver. This choice location of the first American setting for this event gave our friends at Strainwise the perfect opportunity to create stronger brand recognition and offer elite exposure to their amazing and rapidly growing company.
Strainwise held a strong and unique presence at this year’s Cannabis Cup. Their highly sought out booth ‘lit up’ the place with an eye-catching, branded, back lit wall which reflects the continual growth and changing colors of this ever growing and dynamic business. Strainwise’s Cannabis Cup Booth also consisted of two custom made plinko-style ‘board’ games, each including their own custom-made Strainwise logo chips for the playing. Not only does this inviting booth have great form, but it also manages to fulfill the function part of the equation by incorporating a sleek podium into the design, which doubles as a convenient carrying case for the wall unit during transportation.
Once again, Strainwise and Soapoint were able to create a nonchalant nook which, not only allowed for them to have a sincerely strong presence at Denver’s first ever Cannabis Cup, but also allowed for easy transit with a custom booth that rolls up tighter than a…well, you know. See larger images of the booth both in and out of it’s packaging on our Flickr page.
In the short time since we last told you about West Shirley and his Colorado SUP Sports Company, interest in Stand-Up Paddle Boarding has grown faster than the return of Twinkies. This extreme increase in interest has made SUP one of the fastest growing sports in history. Even with our country’s poor current economic situation and outlook, SUP has been a positive catalyst in the keeping of many people’s attitudes, as well as many already established but struggling surf & ski shops, ‘a float’.
With the great rise in SUP’s popularity and the combined love that we at Soapoint feel for West Shirley and his Colorado SUP Sports business, we couldn’t wait to get started when West contacted us with the clear need for strong & distinct vehicle recognition. The result of this excitement is a colorful half-wrap on West’s training truck which will allow for instant identification & business recall. Whether he is at the lake giving a lesson or cruising down the highway to a new event, West’s eye-catching vinyl wrap will overcome your mind like that wave you wish to ride.

The theme for the night: Accidental Illustrations (RSVP TODAY)
AIGA Colorado’s November special guest speakers are the fine folks from Design Army. Founded as a husband and wife team, communication is key to the company’s success. Being able to take something started by someone and building upon it to produce something great is also vital for any team. Tonight’s theme is a co-op of sorts to help reinforce the concept. In a series of drawing exercises 20-30 minutes long, you and a partner draw a simple line shape and then exchange shapes. You each use that shape as the foundation for a drawing of your choosing. At the end of the time limit we share and compare and do it all over again.
Drink & Draw is a FREE monthly event for creatives of all kinds to get together with like minded individuals, have some brew, make some network connections and most importantly, just have some fun! Art supplies are provided. All you need to bring is yourself & your imagination, and money for food/drinks. You’re welcome to bring friends.
We try and have a theme for each event. In the past we’ve done:
• spray painting stencils
• create a beer label
• googly eyes
• mythological creatures
• mini still life
• paper snowflakes
• draw your neighbor
• exquisite corpse
You get the idea.
We welcome anyone and everyone to come have a drink and some fun. See you all soon
We’ve had a couple people ask us for examples, so here are 3 examples of a start image made by one person and a finished image made by another person and the original person once again…
When we think Herman Miller, we think industrial classics. This award winning, innovative furniture company has been producing sleek, inventive, impressive designs for over 90 years. Their designs not only conform to the rules of ‘form following function’, but they also reflect the care and passion which Herman Miller puts into each of their creations, as well as their working & day to day relationships. With just a glance into this company’s website, we notice that one thing which matters to them is helping to create a better world. They state, “The opportunity to contribute to a better world makes our work meaningful & rewarding.” At Soapoint, we feel that our opportunity to work with and contribute to Herman Miller Workplace Resource Denver’s aesthetics is, in its own little way, just as meaningful & rewarding.
While this company has been in actual existence for years, these recently-added glass vinyl graphics exude a contemporary, industrial feel which reflects Herman Miller’s simple, clean-lined designs. The graphics were built with aluminum standoff frames, mounted prints, and an intricate curved-wall wrap containing brushed aluminum, acrylic standoffs resting a top the sleek curves of the wall.
With all that this company does for the lifestyle & health care of our communities, we feel that our little contribution to their workplace is only helping us to help them, help you. See more pictures on our Flickr page.
