to radicalize the PORSCHE CAYMAN in a visually, stimulating way.

the PORSCHE CAYMAN signifies fun, agility, speed and sportsmanship, all of which are the basic foundations of each PORSCHE sports cars. the CAYMAN recalls the legendary 550 spider from 1953, housing a pure sports engine located at the centre of the vehicle to improve the distribution of weight, agility and ensure smooth handling.

PORSCHE spa italy (the italian subsidiary of the stuttgart sports car manufacturer), brings forth this bursary award to invite those who have an abundance of imagination, a passion for cars and a resourcefulness to achieve amazing and unexpected results, to participate.

we expect to receive innovative and original pattern designs for the CAYMAN model range that enhance the visual appeal of the sports vehicle. we want to be surprised by your refined ‘all-over’ designs, repeating or non repeating patterns, whose motifs will translate well into a design covering the entirety of a PORSCHE CAYMAN car.

please download these eps files and use them as the canvas for your pattern design. you are asked to work on the complete car from these four different views to illustrate the pattern development.
