I have been fortunate to work with one of my long standing clients, AERO paint, producing a new series of liveries, which we have named the AERO Signature series.
Going forward, this livery will showcase AERO’s products using their Satin Liquid Steel (shown below) alongside Gloss and Semi-chrome blue and red accents, flowing over the car, taking its inspiration from the sweep used in the AERO logo.
The first car that will carry this identity is the AERO CEO, James McGuire’s Ligier JSP3. This will race in the Michelin Le Mans Cup across Europe. Run by ELMS LMP3 Champions, United Autosport, the AERO branded car will stand out at the front of the pack.
Leading Porsche racer, Corey Fergus has been a client for a number of years, campaigning various Porsche’s in the Pirelli World Challenge with an AERO supported ‘paint’ wrap including the Porsche Cayman below.
For 2017, Corey has teamed up with Moorespeed Racing to race in IMSA’s Porsche GT3 Cup Challenge USA with the new updated Gen 2 Porsche 911 GT3 Cup Car.
The Vancouver Canucks recently commissioned me to produce a livery for one of their new Toyota Tundra trucks. The NHL Hockey team wanted a striking and unique design to showcase their new relationship with Toyota and promote their ‘#PlayForThis’
2015 Pirelli World Challenge ‘TC’ Champion, Corey Fergus will move up to the GT Cup class of the Pirelli series with an updated livery on his new racecar, a Porsche 991 GT3 Cup Car. I designed the original AERO livery on his championship winning Porsche Cayman for the 2015 season from a joint commission by Corey and AERO paint films.
The livery has proved successful and recognizable in the crowded PWC grid in 2015, so the best approach was to update it to fit on the new 997.
Slightly different proportions and additional sponsor requirements resulted in an extensive rework on the side to ensure it was resolved on the longer wheelbase car. No cutting corners here.
Early last year, I was commissioned by well-known car enthusiast, Benjamin Sloss to create a unique livery (below) for his Ferrari 458 Challenge Evo using state of the art AERO Paint film using Cobalt Blue AERO Liquid Metal™ on Speed Yellow livery. AERO had suggested me after working on previous designs for CJ Wilson Racing and Tyler McQuarrie Racing.
After running his Ferrari 458 Challenge car over the last year, Sloss and his wife, Christine, decided to purchase another 458 Challenge EVO for her to drive as well. With so much success on the first livery, Mr. and Mrs. Sloss decided to reverse the Cobalt Blue and Speed Yellow livery for their second Challenge car (below).
I was fortunate to work with Canadian team, Compass360 Racing on their new Audi fleet of racecars. At the end of last year, I designed a new livery for the Audi S3, which blended the traditional Compass360 look, a retro inspired Audi Sport identity with the vibrant and cool paint films of AERO.
More recently, Compass360 Racing have been preparing to make their TUDOR debut at Lime Rock Park with a new Audi R8 LMS. I collaborated on the livery with the team owner (and leading Creative Director), Karl Thomson.
AERO paint films and Race driver, Corey Fergus, recently approached me to design a livery for his new Motorsports Promotion Porsche Cayman which he will compete in the the Pirelli World Challenge. With AERO as a partner, it was important to showcase the paint films which they create as well as supply other racers including Michael Shank Racing and my designs for CJ Wilson Mazda MX-5 (CTSC) and Tyler McQuarrie Racing’s Chevrolet Camaro (Formula Drift).
