The story about NJ Design
NJ Design was found in 2008 with the interest of designing my own karting helmet. I started my career in karting in 2004 and very quickly it was clear to me that a lot of drivers were having their own helmet design to stand out. Therefore, I began designing my own helmet but never had it painted as I stopped karting in 2009 due to lack of funds. After a 3 year break with focus on education I was missing racing so I returned to the sport in the Formula Ford Championship and then got my first helmet painted.
With a passion to motorsport combined with my creativeness I started in 2008 with replicas of Formula 1 drivers’ helmets. A friend told me to create a Facebook page and start doing designs for drivers, and I did so. This formed NJ Design which stands for Nicolaj Jacobsen Design.
What made NJ Design different wasn’t the custom designs because the painters did that as well. But the unique thing was the fast process and the opportunity for the drivers to be a part of a process and experimentation with the design trying different options with colours, styles etc.
NJ Design is a small business but has since years made designs all over the world and made lot of relations. Being presented on the racetracks all over the world is a big pleasure which is much appreciated. NJ Design was probably the first in Europe to focus only on helmet designs and make a business out of it. Since then new painters and designers has popped up quickly. What sets us apart from our opposition is the desire to collaborate with the customer and put their wishes into each project. NJ Design aim to have the highest quality, best service, fastest respond time and quickest delivery when creating a new art.
NJ Design cooperates with different painters in Europe. Based on the final helmet design we hand the design to our two high quality painters and bring back the prices to the customer. As a chain between the customer and the painter we convey all correspondences. The customer is always free to choose another painter, it’s just a service by NJ Design to relieve the process.
Apart from doing racing designs we are also able to supply you with other racing gear such as Freem Race Wear, Freem Team Wear, Arai Helmets, Bell Helmets & Stand 21 HANS Devices.
