FPO Comp Art for San Francisco Bay Coffee

Although most of the work I do is cartoony, I sometimes get hired to work up concept presentation sketches for advertising agencies and marketing firms. Over the years I’ve helped flesh out ideas for presentations to Coca-Cola, Best Buy, Target, Walmart, Geico, and Mazda, just to name a few.

Several months ago Minneapolis agency Create Play Connect hired me to help visualize some ideas for an event marketing campaign they wanted to present to San Francisco Bay Gourmet Coffee.

This first idea featured a tie-in with the Iron Man World Championship. People could sit on a stationary bike that would grind coffee beans as they pedaled. Behind them was a screen allowing them to take pictures that made it look like they were competing in the Iron Man.

Another idea was to set up a welcoming outdoor eating area in front of a San Francisco back drop. A real trolley would be on site and people could have their picture taken in front of the backdrop.

Working on FPO comp art sketches is a nice change of pace for me. If that’s something I can help you with, you can download a PDF portfolio of my FPO comp art work here.
