Sic Transit Cycles Poster
A few months ago I discovered a new bike shop in Ann Arbor that specializes in restoring old steel frame bikes, converting fixed gears, and performing bike maintenance. The owners, Michael Firn and Joe Bollinger, are great guys and we bartered a service exchange: a poster for their shop in exchange for a tune up for an old bike that I had inherited. This poster was designed in collaboration with my good friend Alex Lee. We based the design on badges that you find on many bikes incorporating the company’s existing chainring/tree logo. The poster also gave me an opportunity to finally use a bicycle themed paisley pattern I had designed the summer before. There is also a chance to continue the project by turning this design into a physical sign for the shop.
Since Sic-Transit Cycles does not yet have an official website, here are a few links to them elsewhere on the web:
Their phone number is (734) 327-6900, and the shop is open every day from 11 am until 4 pm, and located at 1033 Broadway Road, Ann Arbor, MI, 48105. Please visit them if you have a chance.Tags: Alex Lee • Ann Arbor • Bicycles • Design • Graphic Design • Joe Bollinger • Michael Firn • Posters • Sic Transit Cycles
