Brand guidelines are not just rules, they’re here to make brands coherent and effective.
We’ve developed the company’s brand visual identity over time, and organized it in simple and functional brand guidelines. Most brand identity development projects take a few months, but developing a great brand can also happen over a greater period of time. This was the case with Bikes Make Life Better, as we continuously upgraded the company’s visual identity over time. The brand now relies on a system of 3 primary and 5 secondary colors, a clear iconography, unique illustrations, and professional photography.
We create custom social media, ads, and illustrations for the website on an on-going basis to support content marketing efforts.

Changing the game for the people and the planet starts with strong animation.
To communicate Bikes Make Life Better’s powerful vision, we created an engaging video. Beyond companies and the cost of parking and solo-driving practices, transportation impacts people in their daily lives, but also the planet. We hope this video inspires you to think about the broader impact of how we all get to and from work.
