Wings of Salvation

14 years of friendship, miles upon miles of dirty Midlands A-roads and a shared love of cycling

Inspired by a shared love of cycling and graphic design, Ollie Meeke and I set about creating a series of design executions for an imaginary universe where we stood shoulder to shoulder with the likes of Armstrong and Froome.

Taking reference from 1980s industrial and tech logos, we crafted our own, imagined sponsors, and created a jersey that we’d lead the peleton in. Inside jokes and one-liners became petrochemical companies, tyre manufactures and cycling magazines.
