The new owners of the Savory Spice Shop in downtown St. Petersburg, Florida contacted us about creating a custom tricycle to showcase their brand and draw business into their shop. We started with an old Schwinn Meridien that they provided. It was in rough shape, so it was necessary to completely disassemble, strip off the paint, and sandblast it. The owners wanted us to use the Pantone Color Matching System paints. They provided the specific paint codes, and we ordered the paint from an authorized Pantone paint dealer. The main color chosen for the frame was a cobalt blue. Wysteria and Chartreuse were the accent colors chosen for their logo. The tricycle came with a typical metal tricycle basket which detracted from the design and product that we wanted to provide, so we had a custom wooden delivery box created with their logo and shop information on the back of the box. Due to supply chain issues caused by the pandemic the project took almost 9 months! However, we completed it just in time for the store’s one year anniversary. When the owners picked it up they were thrilled and said, “You knocked it out of the park!” It truly is a one of a kind, functional, work of art.
