Freitag “Design-A-Truck-Contest”


announces an international contest for designing truck tarpaulins. The best tarp design will be selected and awarded by a jury made up of well-known designers. In 2008 the winning tarpaulin will be fitted onto one of the trucks from our longstanding partner, the Swiss transport company PLANZER. The designer tarpaulin will spend five years hard at work on the roads. Thereafter the well-worn winning tarpaulin will be carefully cut to pieces to end up as special edition bags.
