Bringing in to the light?
For the camouflage of the All-new Renault Austral, François relied on the strong contrast of black and white, the different scales as well as material processing to accentuate the contrast. The fluorescent colour increases the overall impact.
Far from being a single run-of-the-mill sticker, the All-new Renault Austral covering is made of individual sections, each tailor made to perfectly fit their respective segments on the body then pieced together like a giant puzzle.
A 3D model of the All-new Renault Austral was used to perfectly match the shapes and reliefs of the support such as the bonnet or the rear wings.
The patterns are smaller at the front and get bigger at the rear to accentuate the disturbances there. François has played with the diamond by creating breaks and overlaps on the rear side, where the car's design expression is very strong. The grille and the light signatures, especially the one at the rear, have been blurred.
The superimposition of glossy elements on a first matte-looking frame brings sophistication to the whole.
The collage, piece by piece like a puzzle, required the utmost attention to detail so as not to damage the bodywork, both when cutting and when applying the sticker.Everything had to be perfect!
Making camouflage designed to be seen; what an exciting paradox!
