Cormac MacDermott

Cormac’s post in Unity Racing is Graphic Designer. He was chosen for this responsibility on account of his keen eye for detail and artistic abilities. 

He is in charge of designing an image that depicts our team identity. In doing this, he aspires to achieve a clear portrayal of who we are and our aims. The tasks he is faced with are designing imagery (logo design, background design, slogan design, colour scheme etc.), portfolios, presentations for sponsors and pit display, all whilst keeping a close eye on keeping our branding consistent. 

Furthermore, Cormac works alongside Seán in designing merchandise, with Peter, in designing marketing campaigns and with Richard, in developing a car paint scheme.
 

 

Seán Treacy

Resources and Manufacturing Manager

As Resources and Manufacturing Manager, one of Seán’s main objectives is to enhance our team’s branding to be the best it can be.  To achieve this, he has thought of many innovative ideas to catch the eye of the public. For example, handing out car window flags to people from various parts of the country where we have contacts would help spread the word and create interest in our team, Unity Racing.
Another crucial part Seán is in charge is using the Computer Numerical Control (CNC) router and the 3D Printer to make the different parts of the car, from the simplest components to the most complex.
Finally, Seán has responsibility for sourcing all materials necessary for the competition.  This includes making sure we use the lightest paint so the car is as light as possible and that we find the best wheel bearings so as to reduce friction thus making the car go faster.
