The making of a rainbow ice cream truck
Pride is an annual celebration of LGBTQ+ acceptance, diversity, and love — and for the 2016 San Francisco Pride Parade, I designed an ice cream truck for Slack, designed to spread cheer and sweet treats as it drove down Market Street during the parade. Here's a look at the process from initial sketch to finished truck!
Rainbows and sparkles!
Since the original concept behind the ice cream truck was to, well, distribute ice cream, Slack project coordinator Lynn and I had the idea that the flavor options could be clearly identifiable on the outside of the truck — a “menu” of sorts, in the form of a fun pattern of fruity popsicles.
Next, in taking the artwork to final, I had fun unleashing my inner Lisa Frank on this — creating juicy patterns of sparkly fruits and starry rainbow trimmings to my heart's content!
Love is love is love
I feel lucky to live in a city like San Francisco — a liberal place where love and acceptance are values shared and celebrated by neighbors, communities, and many companies alike.
