Call for Artists: Asthma Van Makeover

Mobile Care Chicago is inviting artists from the Chicagoland area to design the exterior of one of our medical treatment vans. The selected artist will be compensated $2,000. Read on for details!

Mobile Care Chicago is a non-profit organization based in Chicago, Illinois. MCC’s mission is to deliver no-cost medical and preventative care, education, and support to low-income children and families within their communities aboard mobile medical clinics. Mobile Care specializes in asthma and allergy care, including screening and diagnosing those who are unaware that their health issues stem from Asthma. Asthma is a severe health issue in Chicago, one that disproportionately affects disinvested communities.

Our asthma van serves over 1,200 families a year through over 3,000 patient visits, and after all of that work, it needs a new look! This year, Mobile Care is celebrating its 20th anniversary serving the community. So, we are turning to our community to complete a very special project. 

We need a new Asthma Van decal design, and we want to work with Chicagoland creatives to pull it off! See below for compensation and details. 

  1. Submit your art/design portfolio to enter! Link can be found at the end of this post.
  2. After reviewing artist portfolios, Mobile Care will select three finalists, who will each be compensated $500 for a mock-up of the Asthma Van wrap. Using a flat lay template provided by Mobile Care, finalists will create a design that speaks to: 
  • Community and Care 
  • Mobile Care’s Mission 

2. From there, an internal team will vote on the final design. The artist whose design is selected will be compensated $1500, on top of the $500 mock-up fee. The winning designer will walk away with $2000.


While there are no experience requirements, MCC suggests all applicants be proficient in Adobe InDesign + designing within a flat lay template.

The selected finalists will be sent a creative brief, and will be paid upon completion of the mock-up. Selected finalists will have 10 days to submit a mock-up, so applicants should be comfortable with that turn-around time!

Applicants should be from or currently living in the Chicagoland area: Cook County, Illinois + Lake County Illinois
