AIR LINES Aircraft Livery Design by Didier Wolff / HAPPY DESIGN STUDIO

Home > Winners > #32864


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
AIR LINES

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Aircraft Livery Design

INSPIRATION:
The whole design concept is born from a ceramic tile detail which equips the client s aircraft interior luxurious table ware set. Its extrapolation has aimed to one of the most complex design painted onto an aircraft as of today.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Made of five colors, four of which supporting a fading effect from the front door to the last window, the aircraft reveals its design details only when approaching for boarding. Series of one hundred and fifty vertical six stripes sets from six mm to three cm each coat the entire body appearing from window to window, from white to full color. Engines stand with same striping and fading effect but horizontally shaping the lines around the irregular barrel form of the nacelles.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Most of the aircraft are very well flying, landing, suitable enough inside, but the exterior aspect of the aircraft is most often very badly dealt with by the companies, whereas the first thing you see of an aircraft is its envelope, its exterior look which should bring you to come on board and travel with. Also their size is rather large and such scale is a fantastic tool for me to work with. The next step is when they fly, making the sky a unique gallery for these aircraft.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The Design has been made in the Studio in Strasbourg and required over three months of work. Paint stage preparation required also over three months of work with the paint team to overcome all possible technical aspects of the projects before starting. Its painting required six weeks of intense work in Munich based RUAG Paint facilities.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Graphics and Visual Communication Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Design was made using 3D studio Max, Maya, Mental Ray and usual Adobe suite tools. Laser lines tools and old fashion plumblines, special stencils with multiple masking features to respond to the paint steps on time tailor made for the project, two teams of video controllers, telescopic nacelles to check and guide the work from all angles were used to ensure regularity of the sequences and the perfection of the design application.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
Design onto a Bombardier Global 5000 Aircraft. Aircraft Characteristics: Length: 29,5 m Height: 7,7 m Total paint quantity: 700Liters Primer, Paint, Thinner, Hardener, Solvent Total roll of masking tapes: more than 500 Masks, cover paper: 2.000 Meters 28 Painters, 2 shifts.

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
Historical search about ceramic tiles and color effects throughout Europe and ancient civilization. Finding the right color matching and contrasts, parallels with nature and animal world. Study the exact and true rendering coming from the natural animal and nature original and soft creation patterns, colors, natural fading effect in the animal and mineral world, stones, skins, natural camouflages. A perfect imperfection giving a sense of natural color mix as a final painted effect.

CHALLENGE:
Quadruple stripping from the front door to the last window. Multiple de-masking and re-masking for the application of the five colors. Stripes on cylindric imperfections, adjusted one by one, cm by cm. Engines pylons and the back cone. The engine nacelles imperfect barrel shape. Dead line of 6 weeks and timelines of 72 hours max between each paint applications. Fading effect on the 4 main colors, one after the other. The mandatory security technical markings on the aircraft had to be deformed.
