Race Car Design Challenge

Discussion in 'Classroom Assignments' started by Joe Diaz, May 3, 2010.

    It has been a while since we have done a design challenge here at signs101. This one can be open to anyone.

    Scenario: The other day a race car driver and his entire crew stopped in and wanted a price on doing his car. You price out the job the way you normally do. The race car driver gets all bent out of shape and says the price is too high. He then goes on to say that he would rather just buy his own equipment and do his own car (and possibly all his fellow racers' cars too).

    You decide that if the race car driver can do your job, you should be able to handle racing. Your company decides to invest in it's own race car, and everything that goes along with it, to compete every Friday/Saturday at the races.

    You need to design your own race car (any model) to either show the local crowd how a real race car should look, or to poke a little fun at the other local racers. The choice is up to you. Just post a sketch when you have time and remember to have fun. :thumb:

    Here ya go, Joe.
    Remember I don't do race cars.
    So I don't know the placement but I know green is bad luck right?
    This car is off an ancient CD.
    It would be made out of old sign pieces, coro, speaker wire, a Snapper lawn mower engine, tinfoil and some mismatched old tires my kid has out back.
    The lettering would be nice though.
    The logos are all old ones I've done.
    Man I need to step away from the prismatic fonts and Valentino.
    :ROFLMAO:
    :doh:
    :rolleyes:
    You probably can't read my driver's name but it's a girl racer named Polly Ester.
    Love....Jill

    [FONT=&quot]We don't really race, but what the heck....... it can't be that hard. :doh: What do you really need besides a vehicle and lack of brains to go 200 mph in a circle ?? I do similar to that everyday going back and forth to work.... and I never hit anyone there. I feel like it, but the road rage has settled down. I think my new ride might have something to do with it.

    Anyway, we gathered up all of our extra cash and we figured we start out small.... you gotta start somewhere and lettered up our 'BULLET' and in no time... we'll be putting all the other racers out of business.[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Here's our entry..............

    I started working on something earlier so maybe tomorrow I'll have something to show. Since I don't do or have any race cars. I'm building a car from scratch so to speak. I like the wheels so far!

    Ok I got to learn a few new tricks on this task using CorelDraw X5. All vector work from the ground up. I can see how you can really go deep with the details on a project like this. It was a fun learning exercise.
