Design: 1948 Hillman Minx

This 1948 Hillman Minx is one of the coolest cars I have had the privilege of designing a Mod Poster for. The Hillman Minx was a mid-sized family car that British car maker Hillman produced from 1931 to 1970. This particular one was one of only 90 that came to the US. This Minx has a 1.2 litre engine that is a naturally aspirated, side valve 4-cylinder unit that produces 35 bhp (35.5 PS/26.1 kW) of power at 4100 rpm. The power is transferred to the wheels through a 4-speed manual gearbox. It is said to be able to attain a maximum speed of 113 km/h (70 mph).

The owner commissioned a 36X24 Framed Poster design and sent me the following digital image.

The image was a good quality shot at a decent resolution. I loved the dark driveway it was parked on, and the greenery in the background really set off the paint, so I wanted to capitalize on those. I cleaned up the driveway and decided to remove the lower section of grass from the picture. I also did some post-processing and cleaned up any blemishes and artifacts from the Minx.

The final design came out better then I hoped, and I love the Hillman & Minx badge I was able to incorporate into the design.

The "We" & "Us" in Mod Posters is me. I am Jennifer Perrin and I cannot tell you how passionate I am about cars, color and all things design and code. I have been passionate about cars beginning from my early teenage years, back when I bought my first car, a very used and abused 1979 Chevy Camaro. I currently work full time as a Web Developer contractor for "The Man". Graphic design and web coding is another one of my passions that I find myself spending a lot of my free time doing when I am not out at car meets, cars & coffee events or spending time with my family.
