Signlink offers a comprehensive graphic design service to our customers, including logo design, print design, amending or updating designs and designing on to vehicles. We are also often asked to re-design visuals to work on different vehicles for fleet branding purposes. One of the most difficult applications of graphic design we do is accurately re-creating vehicle liveries – as seen previously with the Red Bull Escort.
BP Motors in Cheltenham this time asked us to create the International Swedish Rally livery on their Opel Calibra Group A, originally driven by Stig Blomqvist. This car was only used once in the World Rally Championship by MSD before the project was cancelled by Opel, meaning that there are very, very few images of it in use. We needed to re-create virtually everything (including the stripes) into usable vector files, with only the Mobil1 and Pirelli logos readily available on the internet. The images available from the Swedish rally are shown above, including the vector version we created before producing the stickers.
The graphics package on the Calibra was completed using Oracal 751 cut vinyl and 3651 print (with the matching 215 laminate). If you have a similar rally or race car project* you would like help on then contact us on 01684 276 808, email us on firstname.lastname@example.org or via our contact page.
*Please note that we will not re-create certain graphics packages for vehicles, unless they are for the genuine, original vehicle.
