I’ve got an ’83 MK1 Driver, though off the road at the moment, it is one of my most prized possessions. It has definitely been good to me, (mostly). This design is a hybrid of the 1939 VW logo and the modern day one, with an Erndub twist!
I started doodling and playing with Photoshop and the like when I worked in a photolab, just when digital was just taking over. After telling my employers to stick their job (they were horrible people!) I continued to develop and hone my skills and continue to do so today.
