PopBangColour‘s Ian Cook will join the judging panel of the annual Dunlop Car Livery Competition.
Cook, known by motorsport fans as the man who makes pictures out of remote control cars, has experience of designing liveries, including his individual BugARTi, a livery for the Bugatti Veyron.
“As an avid fan of motorsport and with vehicles being the most predominant things to feature in my artwork, I am pleased and excited to be part of the Dunlop judging panel for annual livery competition.” said Cook. “The competition gives designers and those with artistic flair the chance to create something amazing and make a real impact at one of the most prestigious races in the world. I have seen the designs of previous winners and they look so professional.”
The competition, now in its fifth year, is open to European motorsport fans over the age of 16, with each country putting four entries forward to the final. Cook will sit on the panel to help decide the best four designs from the UK.
“If I can give any advice on how to design a top livery, it would be to think about the fact that the car needs to look good from a distance on track as well as in the paddock.” offered Cook. “If the design is complicated it needs to be complicated for a reason and still look good from afar, then on the flip-side if it is simple, it needs to be stylishly simple. Competitors should also remember to make sure that a 2D design needs to work three-dimensionally.”
