Thrive Allen County - First Annual Pedalfest

A month or so ago, I was contacted by Thrive Allen County, (a client I've done some work for in the past), about an up coming cycling event they were calling "Pedalfest". I was very happy and excited to get to be involved in yet another bicycle-related project. I was even more delighted when I found out they wanted a female cyclist for the design.

Last weekend (September 12, 2015) was the very first Pedalfest, in Iola, KS, and Thrive Allen County was so nice to post photos on various social media platforms. Here are just a few they posted that included many of the designs I did for them.

As a designer, it's really cool (and somewhat rare) to be able to see your work in action. Especially so for us, since our clients tend to be anywhere but local.

Design based on (Arthur C.) "Clarke's Revolutionary Ideas" “Every revolutionary idea seems to evoke three stages of reaction. They may be summed up by the phrases: (1) It's completely impossible. (2) It's possible, but it's not worth doing. (3) I said it was a good idea all along.” ― Arthur C. Clarke


This design was inspired by reactions to the RFRA legislation recently passed in Indiana. This legislation has caused a lot of grief in the community and made people feel unwelcome. This is  a loving and welcoming matter who you are.


Honey bees are crucial to many plants. Pollination aides in the ability for many types of plants to reproduce and many herbicides and pesticides are killing them off.
