  • The City of Vancouver is looking for artists to create designs to be digitized and printed on vinyl wraps for approximately 30 utility boxes in Vancouver. The ongoing project enhances the public realm by adding local artists’ work to surfaces that are often targeted by graffiti.

    Artists will be paid a total of $1000.00 for each approved wrap design and its ongoing use on one or more utility boxes.

    Utility boxes are found at major traffic intersections; the largest measure 90″ tall by 33″ wide and 24″ deep.

    *         All designs will be subjected to City of Vancouver review and approval

     

    *         An artist may include their signature, name, or website in one location on the wrap, as long as this does not exceed more than 3% of the area of the side it is located on or 72″ squared, whichever is smaller

     

    *         For examples of existing utility wraps please search online for “utility box wrap art”.

    *         Leading the design process, which includes but is not limited to designing the artwork, laying out the correct template(s), converting images to appropriate scales and file formats (JPG, TIF, PDF), crediting any assistants, editing the design to the City’s satisfaction, ensuring the design meets the guidelines provided, and any other related tasks. (The use of graphic design software will be required.)

     

    Additional Information

     

    *         The selected incumbents will be required to sign a service contract with the City of Vancouver

     

    *         Changes to the design may be required to accommodate site specific requirements

     

    *         Upon assignment of the location, the City of Vancouver will provide templates for the artist to create the final design

     

    *         Designs must include all visible sides of the utility box

     

    *         The completed wrap will be placed on functioning equipment that may be repaired, replaced or removed without notice

     

    *         While the City will aim to remove any graffiti or vandalism, deterioration may occur

     

    *         The City will maintain the ability to relocate or reproduce the wrap on another City asset at any time
