Brixx Pizza is a Charlotte staple. In fact, the first Brixx Wood Fired Pizza opened in 1998 in the historic Dilworth neighborhood. Between their wood-fired oven to the fresh ingredients, it’s no wonder that the demand for Brixx now has them in more than 30 locations all over the Southeast.
In order to honor their 20th Anniversary, the Brixx team chose to partner with us on a fun Clean Graffiti campaign. We knew we wanted to create a design that truly spoke to the pizza lovers of the world and we knew in order to do that we needed to bring in a local artist to assist. Mike Wirth, founder of Talking Walls CLT and member of Southern Tiger Collective, helped us to create the “I Stand for Pizza” stencil. We created a fun piece of street art that not only represented our client but that also was fun for passersby.
You have to remember that we are working with Mother Nature on all of these Clean Graffiti campaigns. The means that we are working with the contrast of dirt and high-pressure water. It’s amazing how different each sidewalk square is and just because something looks to be dirty, it doesn’t mean it actually is dirty. That is another factor that goes into every #thesavageway Clean Graffiti campaign, we land survey and study not only the popular walking areas of a target market, but the dirt levels too!
Brixx Pizza celebrated their 20th(!!!) year in business. That’s incredible. We had the pleasure of dining there not too long ago and enjoyed vegan pizza, gluten-free crust and a filling salad. And this Charlotte unicorn of a business makes some delicious food.
It is the highest compliment when a client trusts us in our craft. The Brixx team let us be creative and pitch them some wild ideas before landing on this finished product. We are grateful for the opportunity to work with such good people and hope to do it again in the future!
