BMX Design.

January 8, 2010

Music, a design studio in Manchester got BMX as their nominated sport and created posters by getting BMX riders to ride around in paint in a warehouse. Each bike used started off completely white.

“Music were one of the 30 agencies invited by Grafik to design a poster celebrating an Olympic sport for their exhibition that was part of London Design Festival,” explains Music’s Ali Johnson.

“We were asked to design a poster for BMX, which was a stroke of genius/fate because Manchester is the home of British Cycling and Team GB. We enlisted the help of 3 young members of Manchester BMX Club and their coach Sam Foakes (former World No.1 Flatland BMX Champion) who helped us ‘make the posters’. It’s them on the bikes in the film…not us…we’d have fallen off!

We then persuaded Olympic 2010 BMX hopeful (and Manchester based) Shanaze Reade to sign 100 of them. All proceeds going to the British Paralympic Fund and the charity Right To Play.”

Walk the Plank’s illuminated Art Car Parades – full of mechanical mischief – will take over Manchester’s streets This Thursday 26th and in Edinburgh this Saturday the 28th November. Ben Wilson was one of three artists to be awarded commissioning money to create a mobile work of art, which will join the existing troupe of vehicles. ARTIKCAR is inspired by a child’s wooden toy car. The Pedal Powered vehicle is made from steel tubing, it steers by leaning and uses an innovative technology to illuminate the car. If you’re near by please come and see the parades: Illuminated Art Car Parade, Manchester City Centre, Thursday 26th November, cars on display from 3pm, parade from 6.30pm.

Man I wish we had cool stuff like this going on round these parts!
