Kitsune Noir & Goopymart / Design-Your-Own Food Truck Contest

It’s been forever since I’ve done any kind of contest, mostly because I think they’re kinda cheesy, but they can also be quite fun. The idea for this contest came rather randomly. I was browsing through Flickr when I came across these amazing little papercraft taco trucks by an artist named Goopymart, aka Will Guy. I thought it would be rad if I got all of you to decorate these trucks in your own way, whatever you want, making a fleet of papercraft food trucks!

So here’s the deal. I want you to download the food truck template, and decorate it in any way you see fit. Create the food truck of your dreams, fill it with food, put crazy creatures hanging out the windows, the more creative the better. The best 10 entries will get posted on the blog, and there may even potentially be prizes… maybe I can get Chipotle to sponsor this contest, does anyone have any ins?

You’ll have a month to send these to me, that’s September 12th.
Make sure your entry is the high-res version I’ve supplied you with, do not increase the paper size as it’ll be larger than a standard 8.5 x 11″ piece of paper. I’d also like a photo of your food truck all put together as well. If you fail to do these things you might not get picked, just warning you.

Please email all entries to with the subject, “FOOD TRUCK!” I can’t promise that I’ll respond to everyone, but I’ll try to at least send you a quick thank you for entering. For some inspiration on the kinds of things you can create, be sure to check out Will’s previous trucks by clicking here. If you’re totally confused and have no idea what’s going on, feel free to leave a comment.

I can’t wait to see what you all come up with, this should be fun.
Also, a big thanks to Will for going along with me on this!
