Helmet Painter Of The Month: April 2018

 

Helmet28 & Petrolhead Italia are proud to announce that Kustom Flow from the U.K is our April 2018 Helmet Painter Of The Month!
Kustomflow is a small custom paint service based in Hull (UK) offering a range of paint solutions aimed at cycling and performance sports. Established in 2006, Kustomflow was originally a sideline business working on small projects here and there. Over time it evolved into a full time venture working with professional drivers, independent bike builders and distributors.

 

Q&A with Tom Hunt – Kustom Flow 

1. What Helmet are you most proud of painting and why?

The helmet I am most proud of painting is the very first one I did for Axcil Jefferies (ZIM) around 2012. It was the first time I was given an opportunity to get my work featured at a professional level.

2. Outside of painting what are your passions or hobbies?

I have always enjoyed the technical side of the creative industry, so I would probably be an architect or product designer, something where my vision would be around long after me.

3. If you weren’t a helmet painter, what would you be doing? 

I have always enjoyed the technical side of the creative industry, so I would probably be an architect or product designer, something where my vision would be around long after me.

4.What is your favourite helmet that someone else has painted? 

For me growing up in the early 90’s, Nigel Mansell’s design has always been a firm favourite. I’m a big fan of helmet designs that you can pick out from the stands, the old ones are the best as they tend to have simpler designs with strong colours.

 

5. If you could work on one drivers’ helmet, past or present, who would you pick? 

Most probably James Hunt! I can imagine hanging around with him to come up with a design would have been pretty epic, and it’s one of the designs that is still so iconic to date – when people think of motorsports helmets, Hunt’s is up there with the likes of Senna, Lauda, Schumacher etc.
