The bike as an Icon.
As a guy who is certifiably obsessed with bicycle icons I’m always impressed when someone comes up with something clever and new. Unity of Auckland Cycle Chic has recently designed a pictogram of a step-through city-bike complete with rider. Pictograms (think olympic sporting symbols) are the hardest to do because you have to capture the essence of the design with the minimum of detail.
What I like about this one is what’s not there. No handlebars, seat, cranks, pedals or chain but the visual message is still crystal clear.
Heres a couple of drawings I’ve done this year of similar bicycles. Exactly the same but completely different!
