This is the first of (2) new murals I designed and painted for the uShip headquarters office in downtown Austin. They wanted me to incorporate their logo, but give it my own unique spin. I added a 3-dimensional element to the letters with a thin inline detail for added pop. I used abstracted shapes in the background to play with the idea of movement and transportation in a less direct and obvious way. The final result is a super clean piece that was entirely painted by hand. I used this mural as an opportunity to flex my muscle memory and train my eye and hand to produce crisp straight edges without the use of tape. Iā€™m very proud of the end result.
