Illustrated Mural - Shop Local
The purpose of this project was to design and illustrate a mural to spruce up a local spot. The mural’s concept was to be somehow related to the location itself.
The location chosen for this mural is a partially abandoned medical centre that is being converted into an indoor market that will feature a number of local businesses. It is located on the corner of a 3-way stop at one of the busiest streets in Steinbach.
The mural itself gives a taste of what’s inside: a bakery, deli, and coffee shop. It tells people what they will find inside in an aesthetically pleasing way, and is better for beautification than a large cluster of signs. The bright, warm colours are welcoming and enticing, and the text offers a reminder for people to support their neighbours and shop where they live.
