I thought it was high-time that I took on a Formula 1 themed poster design but who should it feature?! Whilst I do love the look of the all-dominant Mercedes W07 I wanted to work the colours of the cars livery into the background in someway and perhaps the silver/teal scheme wouldn’t be the greatest for the first design. In terms of ‘being a looker’, my next choice on the 2016 grid was the Red Bull RB12 and its classic livery I suspected would work well. The idea then came to make the poster all about the driver, featuring the name, number and of course helmet design of, in this case, Daniel Riccardo.

So here we have it; a first F1 driver poster design.
