MK4 Full Printed Night Sky Wrap

Post by chadpowell » Sun Aug 09, 2020 11:32 am

My caddy is in this week at Vision Designs on the Isle of Wight for a full printed wrap of the night sky that I took myself on the south west coast of the Isle of Wight in one of the darkest night skies in England. I’m a landscape photographer with a big emphasis on the night sky and always wanted my van to be an advertisement piece for my business/gallery. First thought was to have a montage of different photos but playing around with designs on photoshop I soon realised a fully wrapped van of the Milky Way with white writing would be a lot more eye catching and not just your standard ‘sign written van’ it’s been in since Monday and I’ve helped with stripping it down and prepping the paintwork, which was a big learning experience as I now know how to take apart the exterior of the van. More photos to follow as we’re at the last stages!

Been following this on Instagram, it looks amazing.
Very different to anything I've seen before.

Thanks Doc! Itching for it to get finished now so I can drive it to the detailer’s to get ceramic coated!

This is the picture I cropped the Milky Way out from, converted to B/W and added a blue tint. There’s an insane amount of detail in the photo as I used a star tracker for maximum sharpness and low noise.

This is the mock up I created at the start of the year when the idea started.

Front bumper got wrapped today, and I’m in love! Image am thinking of losing the red strip and going black, thoughts?

Red stripe will definitely look out of place when that's on.
Maybe another strip of printed vinyl so that it's not just black might be cool?
