Vehicle wraps are a clever way to truck around a design, deliver a message or promote a product. If done well, a vehicle wrap can bring a smile to brighten the daily commute. Assorted vinyl and removable adhesive materials are now available to carry an original graphic design you create in Illustrator or Photoshop or other design programs. Whether partial wraps or whole vehicle wraps for cars, vans, buses, motorcycles, and any form of land transport, there’s much room for creative, well-planned graphics. Painting directly onto a vehicle surface is no longer necessary.
The shape of each vehicle presents endless possibilities for creating 3D effects. Optical illusions take advantage of perspective to create visual depth. No need to worry how to make a wrap fit the vehicle surface accurately. Free and premium vehicle templates are available, or you can take your own measurements of the specific vehicle model, to be sure.
The following tutorials present the possibilities available in creating a vehicle wrap. How to use all the surface, qualities, shapes, dimensions of the medium to your advantage. How to create a design to stand out in the blur of similar-looking vehicle wraps. How to take into consideration stillness and motion, speed, how long the vehicle wrap will be on the road. Even which side of the vehicle the design will pack the most punch, make people ask, “What was that?” Literally turn heads. And be remembered for a long time to come.
