Mike Fairholme Designs was established in 1984 with the aim of providing the finest bespoke helmet design and paintwork service for a discerning client whatever the requirements. Although primarily directed at Motor Sport competitors over the course of more than twenty years many amazing helmets have been created for a huge variety of customers in all types of use. For Car Racing, Rally, Karting, Powerboats, Bikes and Motocross. Even helmets for Cyclists & Speed Skiers have received the special treatment ! My childhood inspiration came from watching car and motor cycle racing in the late sixties & early seventies. This era saw more colourful liveries created for race cars as they started to carry the first forms of corporate sponsorship. I was inspired to pursue art as a career and graduated from Art College with a degree in graphic design. The subjects for the final year exhibition were chosen by the examining staff, but one piece could be a personal choice and as I rode a motor cycle it seemed logical to design and paint a helmet for myself.
