The first of the various vehicle graphics that the client approached us with was the classic Citroen HY Van. Sourced by Classic French Vans, they needed this vibrant blue HY transforming in to an organic, wholesome and vegan vibey vehicle. Now Group worked closely with the Top Gear team to ensure the design and visual was professional and eye catching, before heading into production with the printed graphics. Installation was also carried out by our fitting team here at our workshop.
The client was so pleased with the results of the Citroen HY, that they asked for our assistance with the rest of their vehicles! The fleet included; The Fiat Ducato, which became ‘Beef Encounters’ the ultimate burger van!; 2 Mr Bean coffee carts.. which were made from 2 x Piaggio Ape’s (or Tuk Truk’s); A roadside ‘Fried of Britain’ trailer, which took inspiration from greasy spoon café vibes; and the big reveal on the Season Finale.. a giant army tank, rode by Freddie Flintoff, which became ‘Have your HAKE and eat it’ classic fish and chips!
At all stages we used our experience in designing vehicle graphics to suit specific makes and models, making the most effective use of space available. This, combined with our experience in graphic design and logo creation, led to professional looking catering vehicles.. even if they did end up being covered in paintballs!! We travelling down South to 2 x different fitting location across 2 days to install the trailer, Piaggio Ape’s, Fiat Ducato and the army tank back in August, ready for the filming of the explosive Paintball Battle against Paddy’s ‘Mr Nippy’ Ice Cream van!
