As if anyone needs a reason other than the fact that it’s the greatest pleasure on Earth, Eric Nolan has silkscreened a “Ride Your Bike” poster almost as awesome as the act itself. He echoes both the grit and grace of bike riding by using hand-drawn letters to create a raw texture in contrast to the elegant structural elements of each character. Peddle away. Perhaps not noticeable on the pictures is a split fountain on the red poster, creating a subtle gradient.

Eric Nolan of Flatland Kitchen asked me to design a poster for his Ride Your Bike series of silkscreen prints. Inspired by Chinese cut paper and incorporating cycling-related elements. As an avid cyclist, I jumped at the chance to design a poster encouraging others to get outside and ride a bike for fun, exercise, transportation, or any other reason.
