A local sign company had proposed a flat, back-lit, flush-mounted sign, and that would just not do. Having earned his entry into the design world as a sign painter some 20 years earlier, Darren did not hesitate to offer his services. The photos that follow document that build process. Was it worth having a donut named after Darren and free donuts for life?
As part of their annual non-profit luncheon, Educational First Steps asked us and local artists to each transform a plain wooden school chair into a children’s book–themed work of art for auction. After a vote by our friends and family, the classic Charlotte's Web came out the winner. We hand painted the title and several book characters and created actual spider webs with Charlotte’s famous messages along with a real Charlotte. The hand-crafted chair was so popular at auction, it started a bit of a bidding war among attendees, raising the most money. Charlotte would be proud.
As part of a multi-million-dollar fundraising campaign to build new facilities, a graphic of a red paper airplane was developed to highlight the theme of “Limitless”. Part of the campaign included creating an installation for the graduating class to autograph a grouping of metal red airplanes to mimic the campaign theme graphics.
Who doesn’t dream of setting a world record? This is Darren’s dream, and hopefully when completed this electric motorcycle and he will break the cross country record from Jacksonville, Florida, to the California coastline that currently stands at 3.5 days. His goal is to make the trip in under 48 hours.
Dallas City Homes turned to Two Sticks to help promote their 30th Anniversary and celebrate the open house of their new offices in Oakcliff. Along with an email campaign, we concepted an art piece featuring some oversized wooden doors to highlight their efforts in providing housing and opening doors for the underserved of Dallas. The two doors had nails driven in them and painted to create the giant numbers. Additional nails were placed to allow polaroid pictures to be added as they photographed and welcomed visitors to their new offices during the open house. We even utilized the dry erase boards in the conference room to illustrate their latest development project.
