Peaches & Apricots Mural 
Designed by Jamie Stark, Stark Designs, LLC in Orange County California, and painted by Jeremy Stanger, of Sacramento-based Stanger Projects
My client, Pacific Coast Producers, is a large agriculture cooperative owned by over 150 family farms in northern California. They recently asked me to create a mural for their peach and apricot packing facility in Lodi, Ca. The space was over 150 feet wide, on a curved building facade, with a massive overhead door in the middle that regularly gets knocked by forklifts so—no paint on the door.  
The facility is gigantic, but many folks in the community didn't know what its purpose is so the brief was to tell the community what the space was in a pleasing way, show the fruit, and show a can. What I essentially ended up designing was 2 separate sections with a continuous theme. The design work I do for PCP is generally themed around historic agricultural design like fruit crate labels and farm signage and this was no exception. 
Jeremy Stanger of Sacramento-based Stanger Projects spent several weeks painting this and the results were fantastic. He also graciously shot and provided all these photos and videos.
On a small but personally meaningful note, the client shared a clip from the local newspaper (which I uploaded below) where a woman wrote into the editorial page and said:

“I'd like to thank Pacific Coast Growers for the absolutely gorgeous mural they had painted on the side of their warehouse at Tokay Street and Stockton Street. If you haven't been by please take the opportunity to do so. The graphics remind me of the old fruit boxes used in the past. It is stunning.”
