The Civic Taproom x Portland Timbers x The Thorns Out-Of-Home Advertising Mural
Our client The Civic Taproom came to us looking to create an out-of-home advertising to bring Timbers and Thorns fans into their bar. The ad is to share the bar’s support for their favorite soccer teams. Located across the street from the Timbers and Thorns venue, the bar gets heavy traffic. Typically, pregamers anxiously await each game at the bar or they continue the celebration after a win.
In tribute, we worked with a local artist and Portland Timbers and Thorns fan to create a design utilizing the team’s iconic imagery of roses, thorns and axes. To begin, this mural is painted with spray paint. Therefore, the artist applied paint directly onto the outdoor patio structure for ambiance and safety when customers indulge in a beverage. First, the client preps and primes the wall in advance to our artist beginning their work. Then, it took one artist two days to install the design.
Overall, the team at the Civic Taproom loves their out-of-home advertising mural. They are happy to support their favorite teams and attract more customers to share that joy together. Lastly, the mural is coated with an anti-graffiti layer. This helps maintain the integrity of the artwork through the outdoor elements.
In conclusion, this mural is not a sponsor advertisement by the Timbers or Thorns team, rather the bar itself. Check it out for yourself in downtown Portland.
