Competition Launch: Design Our New SGS Van

Late last year, something terrible happened to our loyal SGS van. Sadly, when we arrived at work one morning, we discovered that the windows of the van had been smashed and the bodywork damaged by vandals whilst it was parked up outside our manufacturing facility in Derby.

As you can see from the photos, they did a pretty good number on it.

But during the repairs, our disappointment turned into a desire to make a change. We started thinking more into why it happened and we think that the main reason is that there’s not very much for young people to do in the local area on an evening. So, here’s how we’re turning a bad situation into something positive…

‘Design Our SGS Van’ Competition Launch

With our SGS van fresh from its repairs, we decided that it could probably do with a new look anyway! So, we decided to give you the chance to create your own design for a new SGS van wrap with the chance to win an amazing prize and a donation to charity.

Your design can be as colourful, bold and bright as you want. We’re giving you free reign to be as creative as you want to be…

Why not spend a few hours putting your creative skills to good use and help us come up with a brand new look for our van. Just think about how great it would be to see a van that you designed driving around the roads of Derby!

What Can You Win?

What’s in it for the winner, you ask? Well, the designer of the best entry will win…

  • A home subscription to Corel Draw (
  • An SGS Garage Starter Pack (
  • A donation to your chosen charity
  • The use of your design and nominated charity logo on the new SGS van wraps

Also, we’ll include the logo of a young person’s charity of your choice within the design.
