Tour de France
Everything About One Thing
The brief for this project was rather open-ended, with a choice of 7 roots to explore and develop. I’m a die-hard cycling fan so I found this to be the perfect opportunity to produce a cycling related project whilst studying at College. I chose to produce a supplement for a cycling magazine that explored the biggest rivalries to grip the Tour De France. For me cycling is a simple, pure sport. I felt that my design style should replicate that idea and after some research I decided Swiss-style inspired typography would be the best route to explore. During this project I felt myself becoming engrossed with the swiss-style typography, colour palettes, grid systems – endless design options. This was a thoroughly enjoyable project in which I got to test myself by only using typography to create visuals as well as learning more about cycling rich history.
