Balloon De Cycliste - Design Inspiration


by David Barnard June 19, 2015

Balloon de Cycliste perfectly summarises your taste for an active lifestyle, despite the hard work and teeth grinding required to make it to the top. The final push is about digging deep, relying on the training and afterwards telling it as if it was a breeze.

Balloon de Cycliste was an idea we'd had for a long time, but only came to life in more detail once we created Glower as a platform for sharing it. The sunset blend of colours felt perfect for this print, because that's when the training usually takes place.

We went on to customise this design for a group of cyclists heading out to Italy in the saddle. With the iconic Col du Ballon d'Alsace as part of their route, we helped them lighten the load en route.

Cyclists in the mountains

Whether you're climbing in the Alps, training for a championship or aiming for your next milestone, Balloon de Cycliste will inspire you to keep going out and exercise, helping you tick another inspiring achievement off the list.

Up Lifting - Design Inspiration

by David Barnard September 14, 2016

When mountain biking some riders love going uphill; the grind, the pain, the challenge, the pounding heart. This design is not about that. Downhill centres are not about technical ups, just wide flat gravel paths meandering their way past the trails to the start line. Wouldn’t it be great if you could fly up like you fly down? Double dose adrenaline.
