YACHT RACE PRINTS
The design for the Newport to Ensenada Yacht Race 2020, which is an overnight yacht race from California to Mexico. The logo is was also updated to match the new design for 2020. This screen print will be used for t-shirts and posters.
The challenges when designing for screen print is to work with a limited number of only solid colors. For the N2E design. the challenge was even harder since the colors was determined by the burgies of the involved yacht clubs. In this design an effect of halftones is used for bringing the screen print alive.
It is inspired by the over night racing, when a bright moon enlightens the dark night, or when the colourful sun rises large in the horizon in an early morning.
The early version of the design with a simple illustrative feeling. Without the limit of the burgie colors, the illustration comes alive with other playful colors, setting different scenes.
