As cyclists, I’m guessing most of you have experienced the warm, wonderful feeling of New Bike Day. Whether its brand new from the shop or a new-to-you bike from Craigslist, you’re smitten with puppy love and want to spend endless hours locked arm-in-arm (or foot-in-pedal as the case may be) with the new ride. When I brought home my first cyclocross bike, I spent a few hours riding the bike in circles around my front yard, in the dark, just trying to learn mounts and dismounts.
That’s pretty much how I’m feeling about The Bicycle Story’s brand new logo. Astute readers that you are, you probably noticed it prominently displayed at the top of the page. Perhaps you also noticed it on our Facebook page (which you should go give a Like) and as our Twitter avatar.
Robert Higdon, the man behind Bunnyhawk Illustration, deserves a huge thank you for all his work on the logo. Thanks to his talents, the logo went from a late-night idea and some chicken-scratch drawings in an email to the beautiful final product I got. Robert has lots of experience doing illustration, web design, and logo work in the bike industry. Drop him a line next time you need some creative and artsy work done.
