Just think about your brand/identity and the message that you would like to convey.

My focus will be on how well your design compliments your choice vehicle and vice-versa.


Good luck

Here is my entry for the wrap contest.Posted Image
It is a 2004 Saturn Vue and the wrap is promoting my web design company. Being a fairly new company, we wanted to find a way to introduce ourselves to the area.

I love the concept. Great start.

My only suggestion would be to split the text 'meet me at jsharunlimited.com' into a couple of lines and squeeze it all into the drivers/passengers door. Then the message won't get distorted every time you open the door.

Also the contrast with the white text might be a problem. Maybe just switch the colour of the website address with the ‘meet me at’ text.

This is the Deviantart.com logo, since i am a member of the site it made sense to me to use it. BMW is a great design in itself so using it for my wrap was an obvious choice.

Which vehicles can you ad this too? F1 cars , motogp bikes or only open road used vehicles only cars, scooter and motorcycles?

You need to try to follow the cars lines better there much more round instead of flat.

You can choose any vehicle

You are not limited to just cars. If for example, you had a team of designers that were quite environmentally conscious you could pick on a road bike.

Hey Sour, can the vehicle be a concept car? Or when you say it must exist do you mean it has to be in production or on the roads now?

Yes it can. The idea with that limitation was just to keep people from inventing their own vehicles. Try to keep it reasonably realistic.

I chose the pontiac solstice because the model name "Solstice" is relative to the summer season, which is part of the name. I actually have another viewpoint, but it did not turn out quite as good, but can post if allowed. also have in high resolution, but sized it down to the max 600px width for this post. oh and, it's hard to tell here, but the license plate is the actual new license plate that my U.S. State will be using soon. the plate tag reads "1SUMMR"
