“Psycho Hurricane exceeded our expectations and wholeheartedly deserves the 2015 King of the Wrap World crown,” said Adrian Rope, Wrap Like a King judge and founder and managing director of Totally Dynamic, one of the UK’s best known vehicle wrapping companies. “Kempf’s use of Avery Dennison car wrap film was creative and extremely unique. He is a great representation of the talent and skill all installers should strive for.”
