SCCNH designed the dash plaque in MS-Word, but I cleaned it up and used a high-res image of the DSG logo to present the this final product.

(Image of George was fun to do.... that car never raced. I took a photo of the car in the campground, took a separate photo of George, and then put all of that over a car that was actually racing at Ascutney... and threw on a car number for good measure)

Busy year for dash plaques....

I made a "NEHA Series" logo and used it throughout the season.

These are rare.... I think there were only 5 or 10 of them.

2015

Another busy year....

Image

SCCNH wanted a white background, but I still snuck in 5 blue background plaques.... do you have one of the rare plaques?
Image

The idea for the Nelson Shepard Memorial Hillclimb came to me as a bit of an epiphany.... I quickly sketched it on a Post-it note where the final result had little change from the original concept. That doesn't happen.... ever.

This was my first attempt at the artsy-fartsy tools in Photoshop. I tried to make a Banksy (http://banksy.co.uk/) type graffiti image. Took many hours... happy with the results.

2016

Welcome to 2016.... they year of vintage race posters, concert posters, and concert tickets. Something different to keep things interesting, but they take an astronomical amount of time to design them.

Image

Three variations. v1 (40 units), v2 (40 units), and v3 (30 units)
Image

Image

Image

The ticket price is the year the KSCC was founded....
Image

Image

Image

Funny part about this plaque.... it originally went to the printers looking like this. No one who saw the plaque before submission noticed the error. Thanks to Chris "Mutt" Rielly for modeling.
Image

Image

70 plaques... official plaque
Image

10 of green, black, and pink plaques... a bit more rare. How do you get on the special list to get a copy of these rare (collect them all!) plaques. (bribes accepted)
Image

Image

Black plaque is what will be on the t-shirt....

2017

I understand that we have a number of artists in our Hillclimb community..... Looking forward to what others come up with in the future. Doesn't have to be a one person show. Would love to see other ideas!

I found the original files in my e-mail for Burke, Okemo 1/2, and Ascutney 2 for 2011; I updated the post. Still looking for the original file for Philo 2011.

I will also need to figure out how to take really good photos of the old plaques. Since a lot of the older plaques were effectively mirrors, it will be tough.

Good project for the winter.
