" Sometimes the digging of graphic design and the love of cars are unlikely bedfellows. But then again, at times the two forms combine and cross over so beautifully, it's plain to see the car as the ultimate piece of graphic "
Porsche Racing Graphic Art
In a lovely collection of Motorsport-inspired pieces French graphic artist Thierry Nou introduces us to his work and lets us take a peek into his lifelong obsession with motor racing.
Having developed a particular penchant for all things Porsche as a kid, amassing a goodly stack of car magazines and other print ephemera, he went on to study at the French national school of art and design. He now makes his living as an Art Director for a leading design and advertising agency.
Work like this confirms further for us an instinct we’ve had for a while now – that as well as the noise, the sound and the power of it all – one of the most interesting thing about motorsport remains the visual vibrancy – that is shot through its graphic identity.
Thierry will be exhibiting the art at the Porsche Centre in Monaco to the 21th April 2012.
