ICONOGRAPHY STUDIOS WRAPS THE FLYING LIZARD SPECIAL LIVERY FOR THE TEAM’S FIRST TWO-PORSCHE LE MANS RACE IN FRANCE ON JUNE 11, 2011
Iconography teams up in joint project with artist Troy Lee to produce the Flying Lizard commemorative livery for the No. 80 and No. 81 Flying Lizard Porsches for the 2011 24 Heures du Mans.
Los Alamitos, CA (June 7, 2011) – Created by California-based artist Troy Lee and wrapped by Iconography Studios, the livery celebrates the history of Porsche at LeMans, featuring the 28 drivers who have won the 24 Heures du Mans overall in a Porsche. The No. 80 and No. 81 designs are identical, implemented in complementary colors: candy metallic orange for the No. 80 and candy metallic blue for the No. 81; both anchored by a deep ocean blue. Primary colors provide a backdrop for the driver names and flags which weave throughout the design on the Porsche 911 GT3 RSR.
Troy Lee’s concepts were derived from each of the driver’s country flags, using vibrant colors to bring the designs to life in 3D. Showing off the depth and movement of the amazing cars, while maintaining the integrity of the Porsche design, was their biggest challenge.
“We worked hand and hand with Troy and his team,” said James Naccarato, Owner of Iconography Studios. “They created the concept and design with Flying Lizard and we brought it to life on the Porsches with the help of our top of the line Roland printer machines.”
“A crucial part of this project was getting the right paint: We worked extensively with PPG Industries to develop these custom colors, both for their liveliness and for the depth of the metallic colors. Using the candy paint as a base, we then created the intricate backdrop of asymmetric shapes to balance the design and create the sense of speed,” said Lee.
Flying Lizard initiated the project with Troy Lee in late 2010. “We worked with Troy’s team for several months to finalize the concept and design. The livery is a combination of candy paint overlaid with vinyl. The vinyl was custom-tailored to each Porsche and applied at our shop in Sonoma by Iconography Studios,” described Flying Lizard VP of Marketing Jennifer Hart.
