Smarter Than The Rest!

21 June 2013

Signs Express (York) recently undertook an artistic vehicle wrap for Smart of York, designed by York schoolgirl Hannah Umpleby.

When smart of York invited York primary school children to create an eye catching design for the next Mercedes-Benz smart car they were inundated with entries. The competition set out to engage the local community – with entrants submitting imaginative and artistic designs which ranged from Union flags to under-sea worlds. The winning design, ‘The Next Eco Car’ was designed by Hannah Umpleby from Poppleton Road Primary School.

Hannah’s eco inspired design was applied to a real smart car by Signs Express (York) and is now whizzing around the streets of York for all to see. As part of the prize, the car has been handed over to Hannah’s school for them to exclusively use before being put on show at the Mercedes-Benz York showroom.

Ian Dawson, owner of Signs Express (York) said “We were delighted to make Hannah’s eco inspired design come to life, the team did a great job and the finished work looks great. It will certainly attract a great deal of attention and we can’t wait to see it out and about in York.”

Signs Express (York) provides a wide variety of signs and graphics, including a wide range of vehicle graphics including; full car and van wraps; van sign writing; fleet graphics; decals; lorry & bus graphics as well as promotional graphics. All forms of car graphics are available and Signs Express (York) can help you turn your vehicle in to a mobile advert.
