Tell us a bit about who you are and the people you reach
We are a London bike shop & café. Our bike customers are mostly commuters who ride their bikes into work.
What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?
Take the existing Flag Bikes branding (see "FlagBikes - Final Files.zip") and (where necessary) adapt to place the "FLAG" brand on the round downtube of the bike (in the same way you see has been done with the Trek, Cannondale, Aprire, and Felt bikes in the attached photos.
Whereas the model of bike will go on the horizontal round toptube of the bike. We have two models: The "Road" and the "Cross". The Road is based on the Aprire Inverno, while the Cross is based on the Aprire AR (see photos of both attached).
I particularly like the idea of getting a monochrome union flag onto the bike. Please see "Initial ideas.....pdf" for my best attempt. (I'm not a designer :-().
Although the text in the PDF is based on the brand fonts selected by our original designer, we have a suspicion that when the Flag Bikes logo is printed on a bike or an accessory (like a bike pump), it might now convey the value of that product.
