Side Projects


"The client’s brief asked for an identity to encourage people to cycle more by highlighting the benefits a bike hire scheme can offer. By improving the user’s journey through online and offline touchpoints, our goal was to make people feel part of a collective change while creating engagement around a public, shared service. The identity had to be flexible, easy to work with, and strong enough to attract both city dwellers and tourists visiting one of the most advanced cities in Italy." - FD.

Our design is not rooted in fashion. It’s a response to a current issue.
