Spandex and 3M have announced the UK winner of their Lockdown Legends competition, celebrating creativity in vehicle wrapping.
Refined Edition in Chelmsford, Essex, clinched the first cash prize of £1000, while Norfolk-based Signs FX took the second prize of £500.
The winning entry was for a stunning full wrap of a Lamborghini Performante, responding to the client’s brief to change the original satin white to something that would really grab attention. Refined Edition used 3M 2080 Shadow Black for the main bulk of the car, choosing the product for its texture and reflective properties, which alter the pattern in different light conditions. 3M 1080 Furious Fuchsia was used for colour pops and detailing, making a bold visual statement and complementing the Shadow Black.
The competition was open to any Spandex customer for projects involving a full or partial wrap of any type of vehicle using a 3M film from the 1080, 1380, 2080 and IJ180mc or IJ480 series during 2020.
Ben Scammell, Spandex Sales Director comments: “With our Lockdown Legends competition, we wanted to recognise the amazing creativity and technical skill of our wrapping community, and showcase the astounding results that can be achieved with these high-performance products. Reviewing the entries from all over Europe reminded us of the ‘wow factor’ that our customers deliver for their clients every day. At the end of a very challenging year for visual communications businesses, it feels great to be able to celebrate and reward these talented people and their work.”
