Recently, I was asked by Shake Shack to be apart of there STL Location opening and Pop up. For this project, I wanted to create something that's playful and eye-catching, but also captures the neighborhoods of St. Louis and the impact Shake Shack will have on the city.

St. Louis is the perfect place for expansion, welcoming Shake Shack with open arms, as it embraces the new restaurant in the illustration.
