BACK FROM THE STREETS:

 

F715 MIAMI VICE | DESIGN A TRUCK EDITION

 

After more than five years on the road, the two winning tarps from our 2015 Design A Truck Contest have been butchered, washed and turned into exactly 126 bags. They’re called F715 MIAMI VICE | DESIGN A TRUCK EDITION. If you wanted to buy one, you had until October 19, 2021, to register here.


 
In 2015, we invited you all – or at least those of you who were already on the planet back then and could draw a vector – to enter the DESIGN A TRUCK CONTEST. Out of more than a thousand entries, a jury drew up a shortlist and all of you – or at least those of you who were already able to press a “Vote Now” button – then chose the design “I Love Truck Machine” by Hélène Crochemore as the winner.

 

Our logistics and trucking friends at Planzer were so blown away by the many entries that they had another truck tarp printed with an “F-Ninja” design by Shibutani Suguru from Japan and had it fitted on a smaller truck.

Now, after the tarps have been a little more than five years on the road, we are turning them into bags. Exactly 126 F715 MIAMI VICE | DESIGN A TRUCK EDITION (89 from “I love Truck Machine” and 37 from the “F-Ninja” tarp) have been cut from the washed tarps and sewn together.

Now, that’s a pretty modest number of F715 MIAMI VICE bags for what is probably a large number of interested individuals. And, as we say in our FREITAG manifesto: “We lose speed to win time”. So, for once, we didn’t sell them to the guys who clicked fastest or had the widest bandwidth. No, this time, it was all fair and square, and we left it to the luck of the draw.

 

 

+++ All the bags from the F715 MIAMI VICE | DESIGN A TRUCK EDITION have already been shipped. +++


+++ Just a word to all the design tarp lovers who were slow off the mark or came out empty-handed: As usual, we’ve also cut accessories and smaller items from the leftovers of the two design tarpaulins. With a bit – or perhaps even a lot – of luck, you can find these unique (unmarked) items when you’re browsing in a store. +++
