Fraser Bicycle : Bike Shop Van.
Fraser Bicycle is a metro Detroit bike shop that happens to be the only place I let touch my bike. Along with their original location in Fraser, Michigan, they now have two additional locations in Ann Arbor and Canton. They now have a billboard on wheels to travel over our legendary pothole-filled roads.
Design from Concept to Completion and used my "Give Bikes 5 Feet" original illustration. Worked directly with bike shop and vinyl wrap shop.

I've included thumbnails of the majority of cover design that were left on the cutting room floor, with the larger images being a few of my favorites. If anyone was wondering what goes into a cover design when I work on it, these thumbnails help illustrate my process. I enjoy making variants and often find the best work comes out of playing this way. You can also see how heavily edited the subscription cover is — that's the one with Nairo wearing the baseball cap on the yellow-green background.
Full campaign ideation creation from sketches to completion in September 2014.

Fuerza Nairo! It's no secret that Nairo Quintana is my favorite cyclist. I created the "Fuerza Nairo" script when Nairo crashed in the Time Trial at the 2014 Vuelta, just one day after taking the red jersey. It was cool to see so many people connect to this and share it on Instagram. I'd love to work on official projects for him in the future, and I've started working on condor logos, the nickname given to him upon winning the 2014 Giro d'Italia.
