They are branching out to the popular mobile food market, and needed some help for the design of their food truck. The new truck, Woodie’s Wagon: Small Place, Big Taste, will be in featured in several locations in the coming weeks, but first for the make-over.

Since the real world task created a problem that was right in line with the project based learning offered at Rogers’ New Tech, Mrs. Maria Akehurst’s Intermediate Graphic Design class came to the rescue. A group of student took the challenge seriously and created this eye catching design.

Angeles A., Emily L., and Alejandra T. took a week to complete the design. The competition was class-wide with approximately 25 students competing in groups. The girls didn’t even know they won until the big reveal during class today. What an exciting day at Rogers New Tech! IMG_20160219_100203IMG_20160219_095813
