Hollywood Monster 'just the ticket' for bus wrap project

Hollywood Monster, a graphic solutions company based in Tyseley, Birmingham, was just the ticket for a vehicle supplier looking to customise a university roadshow bus.  Commbus, who supply custom vehicles for roadshows, exhibitions and events, has worked with Hollywood Monster to produce a full double decker wrap for Anglia Ruskin University.

Anglia Ruskin University, which has campuses in Chelmsford and Cambridge, has embarked on a whistle stop tour of East Anglia to inform students and their parents about the changes to student finances.

The bus, which has been converted to host a mini lecture theatre on the top deck, will also be used to advise people on subjects such as budgeting and the university application processes.

Hollywood Monster was tasked with creating a template for the bus – ensuring the text was easily readable and joints were subtle – and applying the design.

Contra Vision, a leading brand of see-through window graphics, was applied to all the windows except the windscreen. The quality wrap will last for up to ten years as it has been made from cast vehicle wrapping film with over-laminate, which can withstand regular chemical cleaners.

The design project was all wrapped up in three days but the roadshow will be visiting more than 30 schools, colleges and town centres in Essex, Cambridgeshire, Hertfordshire, Suffolk and Norfolk throughout September and October. Hollywood Monster will also remove the wrap once the bus has made its last stop.

Tim Andrews, managing director of Hollywood Monster, said: “It was great to work with Commbus to produce the striking green and black wrap for the roadshow bus. The traffic light design, which emphasises the green light, will encourage people to learn more about going to university. It’s important that students and their parents are clear on what their options are for further education and we are proud to be a part of Anglia Ruskin University’s campaign to spread the word.”

Clare Macleod, Events & Marketing Manager at Commbus, said: “This is a great bus wrap – one of the best we’ve had on our buses. It was great design by our client, Anglia Ruskin University, and fantastic production and application by Hollywood Monster. You certainly won’t miss this bus!”
