Jaguar set out to discover five of the very best aspiring artists and designers across the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) with a Design XE Competition. Entrants were tasked with designing a unique piece of art inspired by the new Jaguar XE.
Challenging university students to ‘unleash their creativity’, the five winners were selected for their outstanding originality, technique and potential as aspiring artists and designers from the region. The final winners were Ralph Hage, Mustafa Nachar and Caroline Haddad from Lebanon, as well as Mahaba Abu Hatab from the United Arab Emirates and Murad Marouane from Morocco.
The winners enjoyed a once in a lifetime trip to the United Kingdom for an unforgettable Jaguar experience at the Jaguar Land Rover Global Headquarters. Invited behind closed doors, the artists visited the Jaguar Design Studio and the Jaguar Factory in Solihull, learning from the Jaguar Design Team and engineers.
