Spending time with good people on two wheels. Knowing that someone is nearby when you recognize their bike. Bike piles so big that you have to get all your friends to unlock and let you out (if they let you leave). My poster is about belonging.
I'm a designer, engineer, and materials scientist. When I'm not running a design and engineering consultancy in London or geeking out on science, I like to create through illustration, photography, and jewellery making. I lecture at the University of London. I'm an advocate for cycling, sustainable community policy, and efficient lifestyles. I (still) want to be an astronaut.
For every poster that I print, there are five other designs that don't make the cut. I always start with a simple sketch, iterated 10 times or more, before I'm satisfied enough to move to the computer. The biggest challenge with this design was in balancing the sense of movement and layering without overcomplicating the composition.
It's hard to see a part of my life that hasn't been touched by bicycles. It's been a main mode of transportation for most of my life. It always puts a smile on my face, whether I'm racing on the velodrome, cranking out centuries in the middle of nowhere, or riding through a city center. Some of my best ideas and inspiration appear when I'm in the saddle.
Green on green! The paper I printed on has a textured emboss that's unique to Colorplan. My poster was hand-printed at track level near Waterloo Rail Station in South London.
