Big things are happening at the tasting room…literally! Here at Coronado Brewing we believe beer and art go hand-in-hand, so we’re super excited to announce that we have TWO murals going up outside our tasting room walls. The uber-talented ladies at Pandr Design Co were brought on to give our walls some life, and they’re currently in the process of finishing up a HUGE 150ft mural on the side of our Bay Park tasting room. In this week’s blog we interview Pandr Design to learn more about what they do and how they do it.
Who are you and what do you do?
We are Roxy and Phoebe and together we run Pandr Design Co., a boutique design company based in San Diego. We travel the world creating art pieces for businesses that help boost their social media presence. We have backgrounds in graphic design and specialize in lettering.
What is the general process of painting a mural?
We start by sketching everything out on our iPads. We collaborate quite a bit and will airdrop our sketches back and forth to one another. We use Apple pencils and sketch in the Procreate App. After clients approve designs, we’ll project the image on to the wall. We use either chalk or pencil depending on the background color. Once the design is traced out we will begin to paint!
What’s the most challenging aspect of painting a mural?
The most challenging aspect of painting a mural is the toll it takes on your body. Our arms, legs, and backs often feel a lot of pain after a job. It’s hard physical labor and we definitely get a lot of massages!
How many gallons of paint does it take to paint a mural? How many gallons did you use in the Coronado murals?
It took around 20 gallons of paint for this mural because it was a big one. However, paint amounts can totally vary based on square footage and colors. Red and yellow are the worst and require a lot more coats than other colors.
