WSCC Wraps New Bus in Lion Pride

Creative Design

HANCEVILLEWallace State Community College recently acquired a new bus, that was designated to be covered in an orange and blue WSCC Lions themed vinyl wrap designed by the local company Creative Design.

Mark Bolin, a representative for WSCC who worked with Josh Heron (a graphic artist at Creative Design), said a new bus was needed because reliability had become an issue with the current fleet of buses. 

“We have had situations where students have been stranded on the side of the interstate because of a mechanical breakdown,” Bolin said. 

The buses are used, according to Bolin, mainly for athletics; the basketball teams, baseball team, softball team, and other groups. “The music department also travels several times during the year,” Bolin continued “to locations such as Branson, MO, Washington, D.C. and Orlando, FL.”

As far as the design process for the wrap, Bolin describes what he and the people at WSCC were looking for in a design to Heron.

“Ironically,” Bolin said,  “the very first design that Josh sent us turned out to be exactly what we wanted.”

Creative Design and WSCC already had a long history of working together. According to Bolin, Creative Design has provided WSCC with apparel and fulfilled other printing needs. 

“Also, we loved the idea of a Wallace State alumni (Josh) working on the project.” Bolin said.

According to Mike Pitts, the owner and president of Creative Design, this is the biggest job they’ve ever undertaken. 

“We’ve done a 48-foot tractor, but nothing this size,” Pitts said.  However, Pitts is not new to wrapping vehicles. He and his company have been dealing with vinyl and car wraps for ten years. 

Keep an eye out for an orange and blue bus rolling through town this fall; it might be the Auburn Tigers, or it just might be the hometown Lions.
