Q&A’s with Jordi from Radok Designs
As part of our newly formatted Helmet Painter Of The Month Award, we get to sit down with the winner and ask them a few questions to see what makes the awesome artists tick!
1.What Helmet are you most proud of painting and why?
Most of the time its usually the last helmet I have painted as my work continues to improve. But if I have to choose one I think I would choose a recent Red and black helmet i did.
In general, helmet designs for motorcycles are usually vertical, a strip or two from front to back, and in karting and car helmet designs are made with horizontal stripes, and in this case I wanted to do it totally diagonally, with red and black stripes with several black metallic patterns within each strip, in the end despite being a “simple” design with the naked eye and with few colors I think I got a very dynamic helmet, and very strong.
2.Outside of painting what are your passions or hobbies?
Graffiti is considered as painting? Haha I also like movies and series, traveling, reading … although most of my passions have something to do with painting or creativity.
3.If you weren’t a helmet painter, what would you be doing?
Well the truth is that I have already worked on several things, but I always end up getting bored, and I left everything to fulfill my dream and become a good painter of helmets, which is what I feel most accomplished.
4.What is your favourite helmet that someone else has painted?
Two classic F1 helmets that I like, a lot, that of François Cevert, and that of James Hunt, more current the R. Kubica 2010 and the Grosjean 2016 seems very powerful. Motocross helmets from the era of Mcgrath and Everts, and motorcycling I like the hooves of Norick Abe, kocinsky, Barros, Biaggi …
Uff really like a lot of helmets, I can not pick one !!
5.If you could work on one drivers’ helmet, past or present, who would you pick?
Mmmm I don’t know, maybe Alex Crivillé, Pedro Martínez de la Rosa or Laia Sanz.
