Inspired by night biking, I wanted to capture the feel of a winter evening ride down a white greenway.
Minneapolis based graphic designer, focused on websites, web applications, and brand building. I designed logos, identity systems, websites and custom software applications for orgs/businesses of any size. I also love designing posters, graphics for clothing, and solving problems though design.
In college one evening I decided to ride over to a girl’s house to introduce myself instead of going home. I had previously hesitated to talk to her (out of shyness) — now she’s my wife. Today biking is a great place to get a workout, clear stress and get the synapses firing — often producing great inspiration.
This design uses metallic silver as the base ink to help convey some of the reflective qualities of a fresh snow and printing on dark paper provides great opportunity to play with negative space and figure/ground relationships. I really wanted to combine clean geometric shapes of the bike and its rider with dot patterns for texture, and more organic illustration for the trees and snow accents.
I love everything about design and am constantly noticing the small details in daily life — things that are great, and things that could be better. Growing up I spent most of my free time drawing, and art has been a constant in my life. Now with two kids, there is nothing I enjoy more than creating with them.
