Bike-minded is an initiative created to entice city dwellers to consider biking as a legitimate means of transportation both in general and for themselves specifically. I created the concept, the brand, the posters, the advertisements, and held the actual event in Baltimore City. Each poster was screen printed by hand using earth-friendly materials and water-based inks. Bike-minded is intended to be an annual event, functional in any city.
