RSK’s unique fleet of ‘vanimals’ is released into the wild

April 26, 2022

If you look closely at RSK’s fleet of vehicles, you might just notice something quite unique.

Each vehicle is named after a different endangered plant or animal species and features a unique illustration on its livery!

Every one of them was given a name and illustration back in 2016, and the fleet is about to reach an incredible milestone.

The team at RSK Creative, formerly known as RSK Communication Services, is about to design its 500th illustration for RSK’s large fleet of branded vans and pickup trucks. Each one has been carefully and magnificently drawn.

This unique fleet of “vanimals” includes RSK-branded vans and those of group companies such as CAN, RSK Raw and Central Alliance.

Vehicles have even been exported to the Falkland Islands adorned with species that are native to that part of the world, and just this month, RSK has launched its first group electric vehicles in the UK – each complete with a new species illustration and livery from RSK Creative.

These new Renault Zoe electric cars have a range of 200 miles and will be used as demonstrator vehicles across RSK’s UK offices when electric charging points have been installed, to enable teams to understand what it is like to drive an electric vehicle.

Speaking about the illustration process, Dominic Bebbington, part of the design team at RSK Creative, explained: “We usually get some information about how many new vans are being added to the existing fleet and we have to go away and find the right number of species to match the number of vans on order.

“We simply find an image of the endangered species and then take that into Adobe Illustrator and start drawing away.

“We have to simplify as much as possible, as the style is a line drawing in one colour. Often, it can be tricky to replicate animal fur and hair in this style, so this type of species usually takes a little longer than others.”

Dominic added: “It’s a nice little job when they come in, as drawing up animals isn’t a project that you get to do on a regular basis. Since we often get a request for 200+ species at a time, we distribute these over the team so we can share the load – it would be daunting to redraw 200+ animals alone!”
