1. Pick your favouite Emalco Mug


It is always hard to pick a favorite thing, right. So I used little things from the Emalco mugs I have in my collection. I have enjoyed collecting Emalco mugs, from trips, local coffee shops or gifts from friends.

My collection:

Some of my favorite:

2. Sketches & Ideas


Knowing that Emalco enjoys the outdoors and most people enjoy travel, I decided to select an item that covers both in a way and is close to me. I am the owner of a 1975 Volvo C303, aka:feejaymobile, and have converted it to an #adventuremobile. I wanted my mug design to show the ruggedness of the vehicle, so I choose sketches that are the front and rear of the vehicle. A coming and going theme. Then I converted a picture of the original fuel gauge to place in the bottom of the mug, showing empty. I don't know anyone who enjoys an empty coffee mug. For the bottom of the mug I choose an under carriage image, then found some great meanings/descriptions of the words, "Adventure" and "Mobile" and placed them next to the image.

v.2 – has a logo which depicts the area in which I live, this logo was created by a good friend of mine with the Santa Cruz lifestyle in mind. Surfing, redwoods, sharks (not a fan) and the bear.


Being my first time with using Illustrator or Photoshop it took some time and looking at what others submitted, it is not nearly as refined, but isn't that the point of an adventure? To get out and try something or somewhere new and see what happens?


3. Finished Design
Here are my finished designs. The front and rear of the vehicle are done a little different to show that not all thing are perfect.

4. Finished Design on Template

v.1 (the front and rear of the Volvo are done to not match, as some like to approach things head on, where others like to head the other way.)

Thank you, Jon for putting this together and getting me to step outside my comfort zone and try something new. Thank you to Emalco for sponsoring such a great give-a-away and making amazing mugs. Not sure I will ever collect all your mugs, but I will keep trying.
