The Ultimate Unique Corporate Gift

Take a look at this, it’s what we call ‘The Ultimate Unique Corporate Gift’.

We created this 1-off illustration for ENTOURE as a gift for G Brothers Mercedes-Benz, a thank you for their support throughout the year. You see, Entoure has a proud history of managing and hosting cycle events that raise funds for causes people care about and the guys at G Brothers Mercedes-Benz recognised this and supplied Entoure with a Support Vehicle as sponsorship.

When Kent from Entoure contacted us he knew that giving his sponsor a bottle of wine wouldn’t cut the mustard. He wanted something a bit more special, something which builds on the relationship and creates a deeper bond. So he commissioned this illustration of the support vehicle, the very same 2016 Mercedes-Benz with Entoure branding.

We went the extra mile to ensure all the details were correct, from the signage to the THULE bike racks on the roof and hand delivered the framed print to ensure quality.

If you’re looking for a different gift, get in contact – we make corporate gifts easy.


Steve has once again kicked the ball out of the park with the framed illustration! Mark Guberina Co Founder and Owner of G Brothers Mercedes loved the gift. Well done and thanks!.

The ultimate Ducati present for a Ducati fanatic

At the start of the year, Claire asked us create a Custom 1-off illustration of her man’s Ducati Monster 1100 Evo – the ultimate custom made present!

We worked with her behind the scenes to make it happen. A few questions, a few sneaky pics of her man’s bike and we’ve created a bespoke illustration of his exact bike – capturing all of the details which makes his bike – his.

We then framed and delivered to make the process easy for Claire.

Did he like it? 

I was thinking he’d put it in the man-cave, but no, it’s taken pride-of-place in the house! He couldn’t believe it was his exact bike – and the signing and dating on the back really make it special, thank you!

Thanks for the feedback Claire!

Let us make your next gift easy.

Wether it be for your partner, boss or to grease a few wheels with a  client – we’ll make sure that you’re giving a Custom gift that they won’t get anywhere else. It’s why we called the business 1-of-1.

911 GT3 RS Illustration for the ultimate Man-Cave

Here’s a future classic – the 2016 Porsche 911 GT3 RS.

I illustrated this beast for a customer’s ultimate Man-Cave.

He wanted all the finer details captured including the writing on the Tyres. The Porsche Crest was featured under the car followed by the model and then the chassis number to really make this custom illustration unique.

Whats cool about this custom illustration is that he’s got it hanging up in his Ultimate Man Cave along with all the other cars he’s got. So soon, he’ll have a collection of custom made one-off prints to go along with his Collection of Porsches.

The ultimate man-cave accessory? I think so!

Cars Yeah PodCast featuring Steve Schenko of 1-of-1

Cars Yeah Podcast, Cars and Design

How’s this. I get a message from a guy in the US asking me.. me, if i’d like to feature on his PodCast to talk all things Cars and Design.

Now i’m a big fan of listening to Podcasts while i’m driving however i’ve never been on the other end.

It was a pleasure to chat with Mark Greene. He’s a fellow Porsche fan (has a sweet 930 Turbo) and was also in the Design Game, so it was easy to talk all things Cars and Design.

If you’ve got a spare 30mins, have a listen where Mark digs into the business side of 1-of-1.com.au

Also check out his other Podcast guests – you’ll love it!

Thanks again Mark for having me on your show!

Porsche Wheel Illustration Sport Techno - Custom Made Illustration

Custom Illustration of a wheel

Recently I was contacted form a guy in the USA.

After seeing a close up shot of a Porsche wheel (work in progress) I posted on the 1-of-1 Instagram page, a guy contacted me to see if I could illustrate his Carrera 4S wheel! Confused, I asked “the entire car or just the wheel?”… “no just the wheel thanks” he replied.

So here’s the Custom Illustration of a Porsche Sport Techno Twist wheel!

It’s a unique piece of art for his Man-Cave.

2012 Carrera 991 Blue Illustration

1-OF-1 Illustration Technique

I’ve been asked a few times how I illustrate my customers cars… the illustration technique has been evolving.

Spoiler alert: It’s all done on the computer…

Firstly i start off with a great reference picture supplied by the customer.

Using this as reference I’ll then head over to Adobe Illustrator to start digitally drawing the car in vector. Yep it’s the hard way but vector illustrations allow you to enlarge the image as big as needed (even to billboard size) without loosing any resolution – plus you can zoom right in and add heaps of detail and that’s exactly what i’m after.

Yet, lately things have changed.

Corporate Gift, FRF Couriers Truck illustration

Unique Corporate Gift

We’ve been in the same situation, what do you buy as a unique corporate gift ?

When a nice bottle of wine has been done to death, sometimes it’s when you think outside the box is when you create a great memorable gift.

And that’s exactly how 1-of-1 started.

Being designers, we created an illustration of a client’s car as a gift to say thank you – he was thrilled with his bespoke artwork and said “can you make some for my clients”.

Since then we’ve been illustrating unique corporate gifts for all kinds of customers from CEO’s personal sports cars, courier company trucks, through to car dealerships vehicles.

We make it easy.

Porsche 911 Sketch on a Skateboard Deck

Porsche 911 Sketch from Boardroom to Skateboard

Porsche 911 going from Sketch to Skateboard Deck

When I sketched this sweet Porsche 911T for a great guy in Western Australia, I was spitballing some ideas on getting the 1-of-1 sketch reproduced to T-Shirt.

I thought, hey, I’ve illustrated his car capturing all the little things that make his car ‘his’ (like the stickers in the windows) he’d probably think it would be nice to have it printed on a T-shirt or mug etc yet he had a better idea….

He wanted his custom illustration reproduced on to a Skate Board Deck as wall art, my reply “Hell yeah” what a great idea.

What’s cool about this idea is that the sketch style works well for this application. It suits a skateboard deck and would suit a man cave – or office.

Illustrating Cars with the apple Pen

Normally we create our artworks in Vector, now we’re also illustrating with the Apple Pen.

With vector artworks we are able to use the artwork in many different sizes without loosing resolution – plus it allows us to create super high detail, however the Apple Pen has opened up new options and a more free illustration style. You see  if you want to create a more sketchy illustrated artwork, vector is not that great. Sure it can be done, but I personally find it very limiting.

After much research, I purchased the iPad Pro along with the Apple Pencil and suddenly the option to ‘sketch’ is so much easier.

Klein Quantum Illustration

Klein Quantum Racing Bike Illustration

We don’t often illustrate bicycles.

Yet as we’re mad about all things with wheels, we jumped at the opportunity to illustrate a 1991 Klein Quantum.

Klein’s back in the day were one of the most desired bike brands in the road scene. They had the most stunning paint jobs ever applied to their Aluminium frames and they were the masters of Aluminium (well them and Cannondale)….. and then they were bought out by Trek (i believe?), and then carbon bikes were all the rage and then they slowly disappeared.

A unique gift for a car enthusiast

A unique gift for a passionate Porsche fan.

When you have a partner who’s got virtually everything he wants (for example an awesome girlfriend) but just sold his pride and joy. What do you get him? This was Julia’s situation – but she knows her Man well.

Julia contacted us to illustrate her partners car Porsche 996 Turbo, a personalised gift he’d never expect.

THE BLUNCK BUG

It’s strange how things happen.

A while ago I spotted a sweet Porsche 964, so I whipped out a 1-OF-1 business card and placed it under the windscreen wiper and posted on 1-OF-1’s Facebook page a ‘call out’ to the owner of the air-cooled beast, hoping we’d get the chance to illustrate the Porsche.

A couple of days later, the owner contacted us. However Nick was after something different, not a rendering of his Porsche but a visualisation of another air-cooled car – a 61 VW Beetle he’s building – “The Blunck Bug”.

Owning a 1968 PORSCHE 911L

Being designers, we are drawn to simplicity.

Its often what you subtract which makes a design greater and maybe thats why as designers we are drawn to the Porsche 911, a classic shape which has remained true to the original shape for now over 50years. The less is more approach is embodied beautifully by Justin’s 1968 911L.

ZEN GARAGE EOMM

Last night i took the 911 out to the Zen Garage EOMM at Eastern Creek. The EOMM (End of month meet) is a gathering of automotive enthusiasts started by blogger Justin Fox.

It all started when these like minded car nuts (mainly JDM) used to meet at various locations through out the city. When they were constantly ‘moved on’ by the police, Justin looked for a better solution. He and Zen Garage came up with the concept of hiring the Eastern Creek Dragway car park so he and his mates plus heaps of others from the forums could meet up and talk cars without being moved on.

Spotted: Porsche 1600 Super

One of the delights of heading out for a cruise to Pie in the Sky is checking out all of the cars. And it’s not often you spot a one of these, let alone one thats been raced. This was in beautiful condition with a colour that perfect showed off the curves. Unfortunately i couldn’t locate the owner for a chat to dig deeper. Cool car though.
