PopUp Farm Stand: The Designers

As promised in our last post about the PopUP Farm Stand Design Competition… it’s time for us to highlight the designers. After the big design charrette/competition day, each team had about 2 weeks to take the feedback they received, develop their designs, compile them onto 2’x3′ boards, and submit to be displayed in the HOPE Gallery.

It’s obvious to us that each team took a lot of time on this and the development is astounding! In no particular order, here’s what they submitted… each of these boards have also been printed and are on display right now in the HOPE Gallery!


1. Team Thinking Booth, led by Adam Gates.


2. Spence Kellum & Sean Lyon.

Bonus Points for this team! In addition to putting together their board, they have also been around the Market for the past few weeks working on bamboo and willow prototypes…


3. Clay Odom, Sean O’Neill, and Adam Owens.



“So… what’s next?”

Funny you should ask! All are welcome to join us on Saturday, December 1 for a HOPE Likes Bikes Happy Hour featuring these designs and other bike-friendly market programs and partners. We’ll be getting YOUR feedback on the designs and announcing our plans to move forward with the lucky and talented winning team!
