Kuala Lumpur (October 25, 2016) – Tan Yi Xuan won a brand new Isuzu D-Max 2.5L pick-up truck worth RM115,000 in a special Isuzu D-Max Decal Design Contest jointly organized by Isuzu Malaysia , The One Academy and Sime Kansai Paints Sdn. Bhd.

As the Grand Prize winner for the Most Creative Design, Tan drove home the D-Max featuring his winning design that featured vibrant intertwined flowing splashes of black, yellow and red. The graphic elements were meant to express the freedom, power and fun of the D-Max in motion on rugged terrain. The truck was specially wrapped in the winning design.

Lee Zun Tat won RM10,000 cash when his tattoo culture-inspired ‘Good to be Bad’ design was adjudged the Most Rebellious Design. The main elements of a skull and octopus in a background of strong bold colors were designed to turn heads. It is also a reminder of how the tattoo, often associated with individuals with questionable reputations in the past, has now become an accepted mainstream art form.

The RM10,000 cash prize for the Most Futuristic Design went to Mok Wen Qi for her ‘Bird of Freedom’ concept that featured a unique color combination of blue, turquoise and purple embellished with light streaks. The design was intended to make the vehicle look like a bird that has just gained freedom and ready to fly high.

The Most Rebellious Design and Most Futuristic Design prizes are sponsored by Sime Kansai Paints.

The three One Academy students received their prizes at a simple ceremony in conjunction with the launch of the new refreshed Isuzu D-Max range.

Three Isuzu D-Max with the winning designs brought to life by Sime Kansai Paints were displayed at the launch venue.

The Isuzu D-Max Decal Design contest was held from May 16 to August 18, 2016 and was opened to all Malaysian citizens studying at The One Academy.
