An interview with Tooned Illustrations and Pamin Designs
We at DIVEBOMB were recently lucky enough to talk to Tooned Illustrations and Pamin Designs, two up-and-coming Motorsport graphic designers, to find out a little more about what they do and who they are!
Interviewd by Tom Evans, Edited by Harshi Vashee
Tom: Did you take an interest in Motorsport at a young age or when you were older?
Pamin: Yes I did watch f1 here and there but never knew anything about it, at that moment of time it was just cars for me. I loved cars and that was what I used to watch. I started watching motorsports properly when I went to college.
Tooned: Yes, I started taking an interest at a younger age
Tom: When did you decide to start graphic designing?
Pamin: I was never into graphic design. It was just a consequence of me being in a creative field and for any creative field it’s known that presentation skills are very important so doing that I gradually explored stuff and got into graphic design and further went into illustrations.
Tooned: When I was 18 i.e an year back
Tom: What’s your favourite graphic that you’ve ever created?
Pamin: The most favourite piece of my work is a black and white graphic of a car which I digitised when I was starting out illustrations. Actually the original sketch of that car was very old, I had sketched it when I was in 11th grade I guess. So that work is very dear to me.
Tooned: My favourite graphic is George Russell in the Mercedes outfit
Tom: If you could choose a brand, team principal and 2 drivers to join f1, who would you choose?
Tooned: Lamborghini F1 .
Team Principal- Toto Wolff
Drivers- George Russell, Gasly or Seb
Tom: What are the hardest things about being a graphic designer?
Pamin: I don’t know what is hardest exactly about being a graphic designer but for any festive field or for every field I guess, I face it personally. The work which I feel is okay, average it blows up, everyone likes but the work which I believe is amazing and it would work well doesn’t match the expectations or it doesn’t work the way I want. It doesn’t happen every time but yes it does happens sometimes and figuring the right thing that would work is the hardest thing
Tooned: Definitely time and support
Tom: And finally, what do you hope to achieve in the future?
Pamin: In the future I would love to be a dedicated motorsport graphic artist but you know that life is unpredictable and no one knows what would happen at what moment so I try to do my best everyday and be a better version of me from the day before.
Tooned: I don’t have any future plans at the moment, but I would prefer my stuff to be a success.
