The day job at Virgin Money has had me working flat out for the past 4 months – what with Northern Rock becoming part of the business and a rebrand. So to help unwind, I decided to have a little fun with the new Virgin Money look by creating a couple of branded race cars in Forza 4 on the Xbox.
I’ve long been a fan of Forza, not just as a racing simulator, but also as a design tool. It only provides basic shapes, but with a little skewing, scaling, rotation and transparency, you can create some really effective designs.
The two cars I’ve been painting are unofficial pieces of work – they’re not affiliated with any Virgin Money PR or marketing activity – just me having fun. They have been created using purely layer upon layer of circles squares and rectangles.
In all they have taken around 5 hours to create and consist of a total of 2,101 layered shapes.
