Helmets ahead! We’ve teamed up with the talent magnet that is ARTCRANK to create one-of-a-kind helmet designs celebrating our five cities. An ARTCRANK artist in Chicago, New York, Portland, Seattle and San Francisco has each composed a hand-painted helmet graphic inspired by cycling in their hometown.
Meet our artists:
CHI Justin Notkke
NYC Meera Lee Patel
PDX Brad Simon
SEA Ellis Latham-Brown
SF Jessica Henry
The best part: we’ll be raffling off one of these helmets at the corresponding city’s Bike Design Project reveal party on July 25. All proceeds will benefit our bike advocacy partner in that city. Come to a reveal party and you could walk away with an incredibly cool accessory for your head! Stay tuned as we release these five designs in the weeks ahead and share how each artist created their piece with a “making-of” video.
Special thanks to Nutcase Helmets for supplying the lids.
