Kirschner is a Brazilian cycling apparel company that required the creative workings of the UK creative consultancy, Six. Since they were a new company, everything was required. From hang tags to branding and their first jersey. The outcome is above and you can see the rest here, at September Industry. I like this one a lot. September Industry, a UK graphic design magazine has the feature up on their blog.
One of my longtime favorite Dutch architecture firms, NL Architects, just completed a schematic design for a cycling pavilion in Hainan, China. The elegant form of the roof is the shape of a velodrome, allowing people to race around in all-left loops. One critique would be the lack of spectator seating but maybe there will be a tower in the pavilion’s site to allow for that.
I was just ranting on Twitter (hey, it’s what I do best) about how it’s impossible for me to keep on top of emails as of late when I got a follow-up from Carlos Guerra. He emailed me just after I posted up photos of the Red Hook Crit Cinelli Vigorelli, saying it inspired him to model a bike based on Dan’s winning prize. And I blanked on posting it. Dowh! Good thing I can still put it up. Without further adieu, here it is!
As cyclists, many of us forget that May is bike month. How exactly is that different than any other month? It really isn’t, but that doesn’t mean you can’t pick up some of the Super 7 cycling shirts:
“From the top left to bottom right:
Bike Collage - For the two wheeled enthusiast, we put together a collage of 18 different bicycles. No matter what you ride, show your love for pedal power! Cali Chain - Ride hard, ride fast, ride California. MPG - Bike Ride forever… Giro di Paris - Paris Bicycle Tour! Bike Mess - Three lane pile-up reaches critical mass! Giro di San Francisco - San Francisco bicycle tour!”
As far as collaboration bikes are concerned, anything involving Geoff Mcfetridge is going to turn out stunning. This newest Beautiful Bicycle comes from English Cycles:
“Last year, Jason at Fairwheel bikes in Tucson approached me about building a frame for a customer who wanted a singlespeed road bike to have custom paint by artist Geoff McFetridge. Seemed simple enough. But then Jason had an idea about doing a single-sided frame…. Generally always being up for a design challenge, I said sure, and set about figuring out how I would do it.”
