The Story Behind The Design: Colin McRae

Backstories

Back in the day, when ESPN – Star Sports, was the go-to channel for all motorsports, World Rally Championship (WRC) was very popular among petrol heads in India. It was the era when you either supported the red Mitsubishi Evo or the blue Subaru Impreza.

Personally, there was this one driver that stood out, Colin McRae. There are stats like the youngest World Rally Champion, the first Scottish driver to win the Championship, and the list goes on. More than the three titles and all the wins, he was spectacular in attacking every corner and sometimes, it worked against him. He drove at the very edge of losing control and when he loses it, he was often called Colin McCrash. He was pure rock-and-roll on wheels and rose became fan favourites.

Perhaps the most recent and fan favourite moment is his recovery after rolling his Subaru in an X-Games event in LA.As a fan, it would only make sense to design this particular t-shirt as a tribute to one of my favourite rally driver. We had to incorporate the Subaru Impreza. The three stars below his name indicate the three championships and lastly, we had to top it with his quote: “if in doubt, go flat out”.

We at Chris Cross take pride in designing out t-shirt that has a deeper meaning to our illustration. Most often, these designs tell our story. And we write this blog series “Stories Behind The Design” because we wish to share this experience with you.
