I love F1 and decided to challenge myself on a hot summer evening: design a vintage F1 poster!
It was so much fun checking out the old F1 posters and getting inspired to design my own version of one of this iconic events. Instead of taking a race that happened, I decided to make one of an event that never took place: the San Francisco Grand Prix.
After creating the car, I made the background and really aimed to give it a vintage vibe. I’m absolutely in love with the end result. It looks great, and I’m super proud of how my personal challenge turned out.
Formula 1, commonly known as F1, is the pinnacle of motorsport and one of the most prestigious racing series in the world. It features the fastest and most technologically advanced single-seater racing cars, driven by highly skilled and daring athletes. Established in 1950, F1 has become a global phenomenon, captivating millions of fans with its thrilling races, high-speed action, and intense competition.
The late 1970s in Formula 1 was a thrilling period with intense competition, innovations like ground-effect technology. The emergence of iconic drivers like Niki Lauda, James Hunt, and Mario Andretti. The era also saw the expansion of Grand Prix events to new countries, highlighting the sport’s growing international appeal.
However, it was not without challenges, as exemplified by Niki Lauda’s remarkable comeback after a near-fatal crash in 1976. The late ’70s remains a pivotal and unforgettable chapter in the history of Formula 1.
