    Mattel asked us to create a library of kustom artwork for Hot Wheels "Motorsport" theme global style guide. Designed around a concept of authentic international racing meets the intense hyper real world of the Hot Wheels vehicles. SInce Co-Owner/Design Director Dave Parmley has raced cars and along with Co-Owner/Design Director Eric Ruffing have had a life long love of fast, loud wheeled vehicles it was an easy project to understand and derive inspiration from. Again as with the "Tuner" collection done for the same style guide we imagined what a real Hot Wheels driver, pit crew and support team would do to brand themselves. Hot Wheels Global Licensees could then use this design system to create any of their needs be it labels, apparel graphics, publications, hard and soft goods. 13THFLOOR designed and produced the following for this collection: • 28 Kustom Logos. • 17 Composed Designs. • 9 Hot Wheels Logo Variations. • 7 Repeat Patterns • 10 Vector Vehicle Drawings. • 24 Graphics Elements • 34 Product Graphics Executions/Examples.
