…and they look ace.
The jerseys are available from our little online shop now. If we’ve sold out of the size that you’d like just drop us an email firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll get a repeat order in very soon.
I don’t want to smooch Andrew’s posterior too much but, since hearing about what he’s created, I’ve been a pretty big fan. He approached me and asked if I’d like to design The Bicycle Academy team jersey. I said yes please, thank you.
I had a pretty comprehensive brief and it quickly became clear that Andrew was a client who knew what he was after. Thankfully we share similar tastes. I had to pinch myself when Andrew said: ‘It’s always better to err on the side of subtlety.” It makes a nice change to the normal ‘make the logo bigger’.
After presenting the initial concepts and looking further into what else was out there, I realised I needed to up my game.
My ‘eureka’ moment came through some doodles when I realised the brand colours were the same as the classic schoolboy HB pencils I went through so many of at school. I presented what I thought was the winning jersey and Andrew said:
And after a few improvements we were left with the design you see.
It was a more challenging task than I had anticipated, but hugely satisfying. I’m well bloody looking forward to ponsing about in mine, and getting to work on the rest of the kit.
