Few brands have a stronger association with brilliant British design than Jaguar and so the chance to customise its latest model is a pretty spectacular one. But at next month’s Clerkenwell Design Week one creative will get that opportunity, with the final piece becoming one of the centrepieces of the much-respected design festival.
The challenge is to come up with a concept wrap for the Jaguar F-TYPE Coupé, a car which encapsulates Jaguar’s commitment to “fearless design.” And so designers, illustrators, artists, photographers are being challenged to create a visual that builds on this concept, which Jaguar’s Director of Design Ian Callum and his team will then make a reality.
To enter you need to submit a single image on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtag #FearlessDesign and any concept and inspirations should be explained in 140 characters. It’s a great opportunity to work with such a creatively-led brand and have your work seen by London’s design community at Clerkenwell Design Week. Entries close a week today though – Monday 21 April – so what are you waiting for?
