A mural concept put together by myself and 4 other classmates for a school assignment. The mural was chosen by the Valletta 2018 team and was recently put up on the walls of the Valletta Cruise Port.
Sketches - Interpritation of Text
First we had to read Maltese contemporary literature works and interpret the text in a visual way. Below are the interpretations I did for the literature I had. 
First Idea
Now we started putting everyone's works into one mural. This was the first concept my classmates and I made. I tried to experiment a lot with different materials and textures.
The Trip - First Mural Concept
Sticker for Showcase
Close to the mural there was an empty showcase, so we decided to design a sticker to cover it. The sticker would look like an old bar and it would display typical Maltese foods
New Concept from Scratch
When we showed our first concept to the clients they did not want all that dark surreal imagery, and they wanted something more fun and colourful. So as a group we decided to start over from scratch, keeping in mind some of the imagery we had done in the beginning but focusing more on what you see in Malta and adding some fun imagery in it. 
New Showcase Stickers
The new showcase stickers were of an ice-cream truck, which you see a lot of next to Maltese beaches, and the other is an old Maltese but which was converted into a souvenir shop. This also goes round the Maltese coast to sell souvenirs and Maltese products. We would then fill them up with what is usually seen in these two trucks. We thought these would be appropriate as they were going to be next to the part of the mural that has the beach scene in it. 

Unfortunately the showcases were filled with with items from surrounding shops and we could not implement the sticker as it would have covered the shops' items.
