Arena International, the team behind the Team Aon Ford Focus team were one of my first clients back in 1994 and I was able to work with the team again on their 2012 campaign in the World Touring Car Championship.
With new sponsors including Laser Tools, we designed a new livery for this season leaving the Airbrushed Blue and White look behind.
We wanted to retain the Dark Blue striping and fully integrate the Light Blue areas for Laser. This was a tough design because of the number of sponsors and also variation between Tom Chilton and James Nash.
I also worked with the Engineers on the body styling of the car, concentrating on the grille graphics of the car, making it more aggressive with a ‘Focus ST’ look.
2012 is very much a learning year for the team. Follow their exploits on the Team Aon website.
