Fun with bleach paint!

Since I'm still waiting on a team kit for my new bike team, I made this rad shirt for my last short-track race of the season!

My teammate and I with our winnings! I finished 2nd overall in the series, right behind my amazing teammate Taylor (who happens to be a graphic designer as well).

Adventures in Hand Lettering - Follow along!

Tackling 100 days of hand lettering once again this spring. Last year I only made it to day 30 or so. I learned a lot about my process last year and hope to not make the same mistakes. This time around, the lettering will be more illustrative and experimental yet, simple. So far I'm pretty excited with the stuff I've been messing around with! I've set up a separate Instagram for my lettering adventures, you can check it out at: https://www.instagram.com/aesthetically_gretch/ 

Sneak Peek: HC Hooligans Cycling Kit

I was recently commissioned to design a cycling kit for a mountain bike team based in Michigan. I'm still waiting to get my hands on the kit to photograph it. In the meantime here's a little peek of the design!

The team doesn't have a dedicated logo, so I made one for this kit. The HC in HC Hooligans stands for Hors Categorie, which is a french term for a climb so difficult, it can't be classified. Tackling a difficult climb is one of my favorite things to do on the bike, so I had a lot of fun with this design. The pop of red was added to represent a rider's heart-rate redlining during a tough ride.

The 100 Day Project, Days 3-7

 

Day 3: Never Enough Time
The story of my life. So much to do, so little time. 

 

Day 4: Simple
Keep it simple, man.

 

Day 5: Sisters & Brothers
For my siblings. #nationalsiblingday

 

Day 6: Grueling
It's pretty sloppy, but I'm too tired to care right now. I rode 100 miles with 9800 ft of climbing. I am however very excited about this fatty marker.

 

Day 7: I Like Big Type, And I Cannot Lie
I'm having a lot with this fat tip marker.

Super excited about this collaboration I did with Donkey Label for their Spring 2014 line! Based out of Minneapolis, MN., Donkey Label is a handmade cycling apparel & goods company.

The graphics were inspired by the awesome climbs the Bay Area has to offer with a colorful, geometric twist. I sent two design options and they decided to go with both designs. How rad is that?! Head over to Donkeylabel.com for more info and check out the sweet video featuring the jersey on the left!
