Before we all go and binge-watch 'Drive to Survive', let's look at some designs of this week.
MotoGP's Bespoke Typeface
MotoGP has revealed a custom typeface created by the design team at Fontsmith (now part of the Monotype Studio). More information can be found here: motogp.com/en/news/2020/02/26/new-custom-typeface-for-motogp/325981
Here's a sentence I never thought I'd write... MotoGP now has its own font! pic.twitter.com/9NDmK2m1b7— Simon Patterson (@denkmit) February 26, 2020
F1 is about innovation at all but McLaren showed us something we really haven't seen before: designed balaclavas. We can't wait to see all your "Retro Liveries as Balaclavas" concepts.
Now this is something we haven’t seen before, sponsor design elements on the balaclava - in addition to the standard logo. Pretty cool! pic.twitter.com/8E6V5JTx18— Between Racing Lines | Design Blog (@btwnracinglines) February 26, 2020
Camo Pattern Helmets
Camo patterns seem quite a trend after Red Bull has been rocking them for the last few F1 test days. Both Lando Norris and Dan Ticktum have been or will be rocking some this year.
My first lid of 2020! I'd also like to announce that I'm a @BellRacingHQ athlete this year, so a big thanks to them for the great helmets. Also a big thanks to Dia Design for bringing this complex design to life! 👌 pic.twitter.com/NtkMxteiZm— Dan Ticktum (@DanTicktum) February 27, 2020

Rinaldi Racing's GT World Challenge Europe Livery
Andy Werner has designed a pretty cool livery for Rinaldi Racing's GT World Challenge Europe campaign. (GT World Challenge Europe is a funny name by the way. Might've as well called that GT Europe Challenge. Just saying.)

PJ Tierney's Wallpaper Tutorial
PJ Tierney has created some pretty cool 'pocket liveries' – as he calls them – in the past. They're basically wallpapers for your phone that depict simplified versions of liveries. This week, he has also uploaded a video tutorial on how the Haas one came together.
