Designed and produced hot dog stalls Lights and shelters for a new street food business.
Working closely with the client and graphic designers, we created a unique brand aesthetic for the company.
Materials included oxidised copper, pink led neon signs and dark stained reclaim wood. Roof structure of box section corrugated steel and key clamp scaffolding.
The design of the stands had to be adaptable to suit different locations. The cladding work free stands or fits on to a stall on wheels. and flat packs in to a small van.
I used LED Neon flex to replicate neon signs, as a cheaper durable alternative. The signs have controllers which can dim, pulse and flicker.

Pop Dogs went from strength to strength, needing more outlets.
Each new stand was a chance for creative freedom, following the same material aesthetics.
I developed paint effects to imitate oxidised copper, and designed new cladding patterns following similar geometric styles.
‘Kenneth’ the food truck was the last instalment.
I tempered the copper to create a new material finish, combined with light box menu boards, 3D printed custom light fixtures and a fold up 2 meter sign
The bar attaches using the same scaff clamps that support the menu boards.
