When you are watching F1, Indycar or Funny Car races do you ever think about the paint scheme and who creates that look for the team? Livery design is the key marketing tool used to show the story of each team and those who support them. Some are attention grabbing, some are subtle, and the bright pink catches your eye every time…. you know who we’re talking about don’t you? Even if you can’t name the brand, you know THAT color on their race cars.

One of the things that impressed me the most about these young Athenians was how well they presented their projects and the depth in which they went to explain their creative process not only in representing the Carvana and Athena Racing brands but also the personal meaning and message the students were putting across. The Athena Racing students are clearly being provided all the tools and support needed to help reach any goal’s they desire.”

Mike Le Gallic, Chip Ganassi Racing
