Student Art Covers on Show

This weekend Specialised Covers will be attending the Leeds College of Art End of Year show to present the winning Art Cover designs, created by three of the college’s Printed Textiles and Surface Pattern Design students.

Over past few months’ 30 students from the course at Leeds College of Art, have been working hard on creating designs to be marketed and manufactured into indoor car covers for Specialised Covers.

The three successful design entries that were chosen for manufacture were:

Emma Burton’s hand drawn, repeat pattern illustrations of the much-loved Porsche GT3 has been dubbed the ‘Car Pyjama’. Emma based her design on the care that Specialised Covers customers put into protecting their cars and plays on the cutesy notion of a proud owner putting their car ‘to bed’. This design truly represents the love for cars and protection that car enthusiasts are passionate about.

Bryony-Rose Atkinson’s colourful cover design, with a high impact effect made up of free flowing ink and insect graphics, gives the car that stylish look which the majority of customers look for when they need protection for their beloved cars.

And last but not least, Stephanie-Rose Turner’s unique approach to her cover provides a look representing ‘speed’ and ‘motion’ that gives the car an elegant, yet dynamic, feel even when covered up.

The three Art Covers have now been printed and hand sewn by our specialist tailoring team. The designs are being showcased at the End of Year Show at the Leeds College of Art this weekend.

The first show will take place tonight, Friday 15th June at 6pm at Leeds College of Art. This show is a preview evening for family, friends and businesses interested in the amazing work that the students have produced over the year across the college.

On Saturday 16th June, the college will open their doors to the public and give everyone an opportunity to come and have a look at these beautiful designs. So why not come and meet the bright student designers behind the covers.

Specialised Covers will also attend both days so please pop in and feel free to have a chat with us. We look forward to seeing you there.
