A DESIGN company in Huddersfield was ahead of the pack in a schools’ motor racing contest.
Armitage Bridge-based branding agency, One17GC, created graphics for the Formula One In Schools World Championships in London.
The competition, run by Brighouse-based machine tools firm, Denford, was staged at London’s Royal Horticultural Halls.
The championship is designed to help change perceptions of engineering, science and technology.
Youngsters used computer-aided design and manufacturing software to design, analyse, build, test and race miniature gas-powered balsa wood racing cars along a track.
Nathan Clegg, senior graphic designer at One 17GC, said:
“We have developed materials which range from corporate stationery sets, key stage educational term plans, state-of-the-art interactive websites through to regional, national and international media events, showcasing the creativity and versatility of the F1 in Schools brand.”
The event will be featured by the BBC before its coverage of the Singapore Grand Prix on Sunday.
