CASE STUDY: World’s largest freehand GreenGraffiti (reverse graffiti) mural at Globetrotter in Hamburg
When: June 2014
Client: Keen Europe / GreenGraffiti
Mission: Create an organic, “green” artistic mural in front of Keen’s largest retailer in Hamburg, Germany. Illustrate Keen Footwear’s slogan of “follow your feet” and inspire others to get outdoors!
SCOPE OF WORK: Strategize and draw a visual of Keen’s “Follow your Feet” campaign. Design the art for stencils and then apply the mural in freehand fashion, while onlookers enjoy watching. Cover 100 square meters of sidewalk with the mural.
RESULTS: Onlookers and media enjoyed watching the mural come to life. Keen was able to get their message out in a green manner. Globetrotter was extremely pleased, as their foot traffic increased, and the city of Hamburg received a “green” mural to enjoy for the month. Mission Accomplished.
