One of the reasons why our company is located at Homebush Bay (was now Crows Nest) near the Olympic Park is that it allows us to ride to work along the many pathways. Its an easier commute then car. Now here’s an info graphic from FastCo that demonstrates how Bikes Can Solve Our Biggest Problems.
For example, did you know that 70% of America’s car trips are shorter than 2 miles, which translates to about an easy 10-minute bike ride?! And did you know that in the US 30% of the population is Obese (Australia is about the same), and only 1% of trips are by bike where in Holland 10% of the population are Obese and 25% of trips are by bike.
And did you know that the average person will loose 13lbs (5.8kgs) in their first year of riding to work – a good enough reason for me to ride.

Building a “brand” means taking the time to figure out what drives your target audience–what they truly care about, deep down, at the most fundamental level–and finding a way to connect with those feelings and needs, through language and design. Establishing this point of connection, beyond rational benefit, requires that you really ask yourself what your audience wants, and craft a creative brand experience around these insights. It’s about putting your consumer first–above your product features, above your personal beliefs or suppositions, and then harnessing the power of design.
We cannot agree strongly enough. We recently conducted a customer survey for a client of ours which opened up a huge opportunity for our client to re-engage with their target audience. Its best to Know your customers needs and wants, then brand accordingly.

When a mate calls up to ask you to design a Jersey for a charity ride called The Hartley Challenge, how could we say no?. We designed the team jersey and bib knicks which were produced by Sugoi. When one of the team members pulls out and there’s a missing link, guess who gets a call up…
Without knowing what The Hartley Challenge was, “Yes” was the answer.
Whats the Hartley Challenge?… Canberra to Mt Kosciusko and return in 3days on a pushie, thats over 450kms in 3 days all for charity. So next time we say yes to a Jersey design we’ll be sure to ask more questions.
