FESPA announce World Wrap Masters Design Competition winner

Patrick Charrier of Bazoom Studio, France, is the winner of FESPA’s World Wrap Masters Design Competition. The winning design will be applied, by the world's best vinyl installers, to a speedboat used by the Haugaard Racing Team in the 2017 World Formula 4 UIM Powerboat Championship.

In order to qualify, participants were required to produce an attention-grabbing design demonstrating their creative skills. Prerequisites for the design included the boat number (22), the racing team's logo and World Wrap Masters sponsor, Hexis' logo.

"The inspiration for my design came from the Danish Drakkar (aka Viking longboat),” says Charrier. “The general idea was to give an impression of movement to the boat, even when it's at a standstill. Blue and white are the top colours for a boat - lots of white for the pontoons to contrast with the surface of the water. The gradated honeycomb patterns evoke the composite materials used to construct the boat. The stars are included to reference the pilot, the tightrope walker in his cockpit, as well as a nod to shooting stars and speed on water."

Visitors to FESPA 2017 in Hamburg will be able to see the boat being wrapped with Patrick's design during the live final on the 10th and 11th May 2017.
