NatEx livery design finalists named

Finalists for National Express’s Driving Design competition have been named.

Over the past few months, artists from all over the UK have been creating artwork for a chance to see it spread across the side of a 14m National Express coach. The final eight designs have been chosen and are now open to a public vote.

Chris Hardy, MD at National Express, said: “I am extremely pleased with the high standard of entries we have had in for this competition. Shortlisting them down to just eight was a tricky task.

“The online public vote is open until 15 July so we would encourage people to choose a favourite. This competition heavily supports our Youth Promise which we feel very passionately about. We are a big brand with a national reach, and we want to use this to give young talent a platform that they can be proud of.”

The eight finalist’s designs are now open to a public vote on the National Express website.

The final eight are:

  • Ben Watson, 27, from Warrington
  • Cephas Natuf, 17, from Manchester
  • Jordan Sallis, 23, from Pontypool
  • Sarah J Singleton, 22, Darwen
  • Sergej Komkov, 27, from Hull
  • Sky Griffiths, 19, Bristol
  • Tom Scott, 18, from London
  • Tomekah George, 21, from Sheffield

The artist with the most votes will also receive a free 12-month coach pass, £500, two tickets to Hampshire’s Boomtown Fair music festival in August and a one-to-one development day with an established artist, resulting in their work being showcased at this year’s High Vis Festival in Birmingham in September.
