Putting the art in Smart

Signs Express has applied the winning design of Smart's creative competition to their new eco car. The winning entry - 'The Next Eco Car' - was created by Hannah Umpleby from Poppleton Road Primary School in York, North Yorkshire.

When car company, Smart of York, invited local primary school children to create an eye catching design for the next Mercedes-Benz Smart car, they were inundated with entries. The competition was created to engage the local community - with entrants submitting imaginative and artistic designs which ranged from Union flags to under-sea worlds.

Once the competition was decided, Umpleby's winning eco-inspired design was applied to a real Smart car by Signs Express (York) and is now whizzing around the streets of York for all to see.

Ian Dawson, owner of Signs Express (York), said: "We were delighted to make Hannah's eco inspired design come to life, the team did a great job and the finished work looks great. It will certainly attract a great deal of attention and we canÕt wait to see it out and about in York."

Signs Express (York) provides a wide variety of signs and graphics, including a wide range of vehicle graphics such as; full car and van wraps, van sign writing, fleet graphics, decals, lorry and bus graphics as well as promotional graphics.
