Vintage Gas Pump Ballot Boxes

Share Button

One of our customers came to us for ideas to promote a healthy eating campaign called “Fuel” to their employees.¬†They liked the idea of using a vintage fuel pump tower as a ballot box where employees could drop their “fuel bucks” in and be entered into a drawing. We took the challenge on and had a concept and design finalized within two weeks. Within three weeks, we were in production.

The concept for the pump was modeled after vintage pumps like the one featured here.

The first step was to develop an engineering design for the fuel pump. The goal was to take a concept and turn it into reality on a strict budget.

We designed the fuel pump to fit efficiently on an economic cardboard sheet. After 3D rendering and prototyping on our digital cutting table, we had a functional prototype that we could design art to.

The artwork was designed for production and mocked up in 3D to assist the customer in visualizing the final product.

Once the artwork was finalized, production began. White-faced cardboard was printed on our UV printer and cut on our digital cutting table. Our finishings department applied the necessary decals and adhesives for assembly. The shipping department packed all of the parts and instructions into a compact, flat box and shipped the fuel pumps to 55 different locations around the country.
