Our eyes nearly exploded after looking at the insane designs for this year’s Racing Art Car Design competition organized by SC Global Developments Limited, the ‘Official Real Estate Partner’ for the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia.
Last year, the company initiated the first Design competition working in collaboration with SOTA and its students. For this year’s competition, they sought to reach out to the next generation of Singapore designers with an exciting ‘real life’ design project that would give students a unique chance to learn and apply their artistic talents within a commercial environment, whilst inspiring them to question traditional boundaries between art and life. The project was also opened up to fine art and design students from Nanyang Academy of Fine Arts (NAFA), Nanyang Polytechnic School of Design (NYP), and The School of the Arts (SOTA).
Students were given the opportunity to create a design for the SC Global Racing car as part of the marketing activities in the lead up to the race providing the students with a unique opportunity to expose their creative talents to an international audience. With over 350 entries, the judging panel was impressed with the calibre of the students who were aged between 12 to 26 years.
The winning design titled, ‘Radiate’ is by 16-year old Lim Ping Qi from SOTA. Second place went to ‘Graceful Wings’ by 24-year-old Sia Shin Lei from NAFA. Third prize went to ‘No man is an island’ by Elizabeth Low, aged 18 years, from NYP. Two other designs were selected for special mention and commendation: ‘Breakthrough’ by 18-year-old Patricia Paramita Husada of NYP, and ‘X- Force’ by 21-year-old Shawn Chen of NAFA.
