The Micklegate Run Soapbox Challenge is a hilarious go-cart race down the quintessentially English and iconic cobbled York Street.
I was commissioned by the 'Micklegate Business Initiative' (MBI) to create the logo, poster design, merchandising, website imagery and promotional animation for the Micklegate Run Soap Box Challenge which will be taking place this summer, August 28th 2016.

The shop sign captures the spirit and essence of York and Yorkshire - its charm, wonderful landscape, famous landmarks, range of architecture, friendliness, humour and history - both dark and heroic!
The scene also depicts the many different sides of cycling culture; from the romance of country getaways through to getting from A to B in busy, urban environments.

Britain's Best High Street
Commissioned by the BRTA (Bishopthorpe Road Trading Association) to create the branding, illustrations and graphics for events, website and marketing for the York street, Bishopthorpe Road (known locally as Bishy Rd).
This includes logo, poster and product design for events such as the Le Tour de France, 2014 and Tour de Yorkshire, 2015.
I have worked for the BRTA since 2009 and proud to say that Bishopthorpe Road won 'Yorkshire's Best Dressed community' for the Tour de France in 2014 and has recently been crowned 'Britain's Best High Street' out of hundreds of high streets throughout the UK receiving the award 'Winner of Winners' in the Great British High Street Awards 2015.
