The Cogheads are a long running MTB social riding group from the Newcastle, NSW region who came to us back in early winter with an idea of what they wanted in a kit design wise. We worked with them to develop that idea and adjust their existing logos (one for the girls as well) into a bright selection of jerseys and other kit. The main parameters were the colours and vertical stripes.
Seeing as many of the Cogheads rides stat and/or end at pubs… they thought using a screenshot of part of their Strava Heatmap might be a cool idea for the back of the jerseys. And it was. But here’s where things got complex. We weren’t happy to use a screenshot though (for all the graphic design reasons), so many, many hours were put in to create a proper vector ‘heatmap’ using part of their logo to show the pub locations. The end result is a striking, true representation of their popular trail networks. The Cogheads, and Cogettes, were very happy with the new look and promptly ordered a range of products including XC jerseys (long and short sleeve), Trail/Gravity jerseys (long and short sleeve), some winter XC jerseys, vests, knicks (std and bib) and arm warmers. Out on the trails their design stands out bright and unmistakable.
