Project Description

In an effort to instill a sense of pride in city cyclists and inspire people to pedal their way into tomorrow, I recreated the most iconic structures in three cities from a collection of bicycle tyre marks. Going to show that there's no dream that's too far, no ambition that's too high and no divide that can't be crossed.

Created as posters for 100Copies.net, these posters sold-out in just 32 hours. People started talking about them in the digital space and for the first time, even asked 100Copies.net to extend these Limited Edition posters into a second run.

Production Lesson(s)

If there's one thing metropolitans are proud of, it's their iconic city structures. Inspired by this insight, I recreated these city icons from the collective tyre marks of various bicycles. Demonstrating that it takes more than just one to create something that makes all cyclists proud. At the same time, these iconic recreations also inspire a new breed cyclists by showcasing that there's more to cycling than going from point A to point B. ”
