Case Study | The Well at Sunset 

A developer contacted Only Up to paint a 400 ft long interactive mural on a new retail property. 

 

Only Up handled all necessary paperwork, and conducted market and brand research to create a series of colorful and engaging designs unique to the development's needs and vision.

WHAT CLIENTS SAY

Chris Carter 

Executive Director

Livermore Valley Performing Arts 

"I had the pleasure to work with Trent Thompson and Only Up with the installation of a mural on our building, the largest one in downtown Livermore. Painting the biggest mural in the city on your building can come with some real trepidation, but Trent kept us informed throughout the process and we felt comfortable trusting him with the project. It required buy-in and strong coordination with our board of directors, donors, the staff, the city council and city staff. I was extremely pleased with the results. The mural was very well-done and they were very accommodating to our needs. I still feel a great sense of pride and joy every time I walk by it. I would highly recommend this creative and supportive team led by Trent. "

Orville Power

Managing Partner

Mana Investments

“Our team was looking for a creative way to add some personality to our mixed use development project.  

 

We had a drab wall nearly 400ft long which we engaged Trent and his OnlyUp team to design and paint a mural representative of the city.

 

Their design was spot on and the execution was within a couple weeks from initial call to completed mural.  We are already in discussions about future work.”

Mony Nop 

Community Leader  

"OnlyUp is simply the best! A few months ago, I met Trent while he was working on a mural on First Street in Livermore. We met at my office a few weeks later and the 20 foot mural in my office was done. The mural is absolutely gorgeous, well complimented by all those that entered my office.

OnlyUp also designed T-Shirts for my campaign, where I am running for the the position of Mayor for the City of Livermore. They did an outstanding job with that too. and I can't wait to see the print of these T-Shirts. No doubt that OnlyUp and I will work on many other projects together! "

Thomas Hall

CFO

Green Leaf Partners

"[OnlyUp] has been great to work with on personal and professional projects over the last couple of years.

 

Trent Thompson has been on time and on point with a varied amount of small and larger projects.  He has excelled as an individual artist and also has been able to to project manage larger projects. 

 

Looking forward to working with Trent and his OnlyUp team on many more pieces going forward."
