The founding of Your life in cars.com
Oliver grew up as a child with an obsession with Micro Machines and a car fanatic stepfather who always ran his own business and regularly had new and old cars (depending on business success) ranging from Porsches to Audis, SAAB Turbos to Vauxhall Astras, Alfa Romeos to work vans and of course the collection of Motorbikes.
To a creative mind it planted the seed and the story of Carvolution® Your life in cars® began to emerge and Yourlifeincars.com was born.
We all remember our first old banger, our first 'nice' car. The moment we need a people carrier or 4x4 for the kids (and all accompanying baggage) and the mid-life crisis sports car. Everyone has their own story to tell.
Our culture does not just view cars as being a form of transport they are often viewed as a direct reflection on who we are and where we are in our life.
After studying for a degree in illustration and going on to work for commercial clients producing the illustrations and graphic designs but always wanting to do his own thing, Oliver set up his own business in 2010.
Oliver created the brand Carvolution® and the first design back in May 2011 with a limit of only 3 cars. Orders began flying in and he was soon overwhelmed with the positive response and the request for larger bespoke artworks.
Today things have moved on and although we still produce our original 3 car artwork, we now produce our flagship panoramic artworks that are illustrated to your exact specifications featuring Your life in cars™ and professionally framed by Fine Art Guild Framers. We regularly produce artworks of over 30 cars and even up to 80 and beyond.
We are excited to see where our ideas drive us next!
