Race car driver Rasmus Mårthen came up with a cool idea for the PlaygroundSquad students in February, one of them would get to design his new Race car helmet. He wanted the helmet to represent Dalarna in a cool way, but maybe with something else than the classic Dalahorse.
The students had about a month to create a design and then Rasmus Mårthen would pick the one he thought would look great as the design for his new helmet. The lucky winner was Hannes Löwenberg. He´s a first year artist at PlaygroundSquad.
We asked him a few questions after he found out that Rasmus Mårthen choose his design.
How does it feel that he picked your design for his new helmet?
- It feels great, alot of people are going to see his helmet and it´s a good way to get my name out there.
Why did you want your design to end up on Rasmus Race car helmet?
-I´ve always been interested in racing and i think it´s really fun to design so I thought it was a cool idea from start.
What inspired you?
- The theme was Dalarna so i wanted the helmet to have a Eurasian eagle-owl on it since that´s Dalarnas landscape animal. I was thinking about the eagle-owl´s eyes, they have a strong yellow-orange color and that would really make the design pop out. The eye is also focused and gives a very dedicated feeling to the design and Rasmus Mårthen likes to win, so I thought that would be a awesome combo for his helmet.
