FatTruck is a multi-terrain and amphibious vehicle. While the size of the vehicle posed challenges during installation, the production process involved the coordination of various print media to achieve an appearance that matched the vehicle’s presence. Taking inspiration from military vehicles, an urban camouflage was designed for the exterior and brought to life on Avery 1105 vinyl film using an Epson SureColor S60600 solvent printer. To enhance the film’s durability, Avery 1360z lamination was applied to provide resistance to UV-damage and abrasions while the vehicle traverses mixed-terrain. The design was printed on Sihl Perforated Window Vinyl, allowing 40 per cent outward visibility and laminated to maintain durability. A touch of colour was achieved using reflective vinyl on ‘Fat Truck’ logos for the body. Orange accenting around the lip of the wheels was printed.
