D-type Jaguar 60th Anniversary

As part of the 60th anniversary celebrations for the Jaguar D-type, Jaguar Heritage have organised a display at the Heritage Motor Centre in Gaydon, near to where Jaguar Landrover is based. Having been in communication with Sam Sayer, DeType’s Creative Director (whose grandfather Malcolm designed the C, D and E-type Jaguars) Jaguar Heritage asked us to produce the supporting graphics for the display, listing 60 facts for the 3-year-running Le Mans winning car.

The posters were created using archive pictures of the D-type in action, with a ’60′ monogram designed for the celebration (based on the iconic ‘fin’ that was fitted by some of the racing teams) which was also picked up by Jaguar Heritage to use on other celebration merchandise.

The monogram and designs also featured as part of a limited edition souvenir pack which went on sale in the Heritage Motor Centre, with copies of some of the original D-type documents.
