THIS DESIGN STARTED IT ALL FOR ME. I have always had a passion for automobile designs which I attribute to my father. Like most boys I collected Matchbox® and Hot Wheels® cars but I probably paid more attention to the auto shape, paint scheme and aesthetics more than the average child. My mother taught me to draw and encouraged the artist within. In 2005, I earned my bachelor's degree focusing on graphic design & advertising and in 1998, I was hired by a large motorsports marketing company and manufacturer of premium die-cast collectible replicas. For several weeks I was immersed in the business of racing and learned about all forms of spectator motorsports from NASCAR to NHRA to CART to IRL. Within months I was tasked with designing a special paint scheme to commemorate Terry Labonte's 600 straight starts in NASCAR earning him the title "Iron Man".

 

In the early 90's, the idea of special paint schemes was still relatively new. NASCAR had been around for 40 years and sponsors rarely changed the design mid-season. Stock cars designs used to be fully painted including the sponsors. With the rise of desktop publishing and lower cost and impermanence of vinyl decals, the decoration of motorsports vehicles changed and suddenly it was quicker and easier than ever to alter the core design.

 

In 1991, five drivers drove special paint schemes promoting U.S. Armed Forces serving in Operation Desert Storm. Dale Earnhardt's 1995 "Silver Select" increased special paint scheme popularity especially for large events like the Daytone 500 and Talladega races.  By 1997, after Dale Earnhardt's popular "Wheaties" design hit the track, sponsors were embracing the idea of promoting different products and events as a way to generate excitement and buzz, offer new die-cast and merchandise and to coincide with other affiliated promotions with which they were involved.

 

The proliferation of this phenomenon was evidenced by the sheer increase in design projects over the next few years. The fan base of NASCAR was exploding and that meant a prodigious increase of merchandise production  opportunities. In 1998, I created 1 special paint scheme (featured above). By comparison, in 1999 & 2000 I developed 18 per year. By 2001, I had created over 30 stock car designs including special paint schemes, event cars and core paint schemes. In addition I went on to develop multiple F1, IRL, CART, NHRA and World of Outlaws paint schemes most with coordinated helmet and firesuit designs.

 

It was an exciting time to be working concurrently with the rise of NASCAR and it was challenging to stay innovative and produce at such a rapid pace. By 2006, I was ready for a new challenge so with the help of two colleagues we coalesced  and formed Speedtech Design Group offering graphic and motorsports design services. Seven years later I formed Dune Media and set off on my own. I've worked as a professional graphic designer since 1995 and have built a well-rounded portfolio. Motorsports clients are looking for something very different than traditional business clients so I felt compelled to separate the two portfolios using my personal site to showcase my motorsports design work and DuneMedia.net for my other graphic design projects.

 

Below is a collection of stock car designs that I've been privileged to create. I've selected several designs that are more noteworthy than others or have special meaning to me. Thanks for visiting and be sure to check back periodically to see what's in development for the future.

2006

IN 2006, TWO COLLEAGUES AND I FORMED SPEEDTECH DESIGN GROUP. We set out to offer a combination of motorsports design and corporate branding to a variety of clients rounding out our portfolios and accepting new challenges. This seven year period gave me time to branch out and hone my skills as a graphic designer. For the seven previous years I had focused solely on developing motorsports logos, paint schemes, corresponding firesuit & crew uniforms and race helmet designs. Now I was free to work on traditional graphic design projects, corporate ID's, advertising, marketing, web design, package labeling and a whole host of new opportunities.

 

This year was a turning point in my career and as an artist it helped me to adapt, explore and develop skills that up until then either didn't exist or had been dormant for years. The number of livery design projects drastically decreased while I focused on other motorsports related work. From 2009-2011, I spent much of my time developing graphics for LowesRacing.com, designing Lowe's quarterly print magazine "Track Record" and creating posters, ads, web banners and various marketing materials promoting 6-time NASCAR Sprint Cup Champion Jimmie Johnson. I continue to work with a handful of NASCAR & NHRA teams in addition to operating my full time graphic design business – Dune Media.
