Welcome 2014 with the first drink and draw event of the new year. Drawings from a hat, is just as it sounds. As people come in they will write random ideas of drawings they’d like to see done in 20-30minute intervals. Ideas like “A skate boarding pig” or “Zombie Sheep” are more than welcome. We’ll pass the hat around and once everyone has an idea/subject in had we put pencil/marker to paper and get creative. At the end of those 30 minutes we share our masterpieces and do it all again. Toss back a few brews in the in between time and catch up with old friends.
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’d like to thank The Living Room on Broadway for hosting an awesome November Drink & Draw. With almost 20 Denver area creatives in attendance, the final Drink & Draw of 2013 was a great success. Accidental illustrations abound. Some of our favorites included radio controlled kaiju, an anthropomorphized nacho chip on fire, and a hipster dinosaur with ear buds. We’d definitely say that a good time was had by all.
As always, you can find photos from the event (in case you weren’t there in person) on our Flickr page.
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.
