I don’t know if it was meant to be ironic, but I was asked to speak at the AIGA SHIFT conference in Portland about sustainable manufacturing.

Reason 2 Ride is a series of bike races that raises money for various charities. The Utah series is referred to as the “udder” (UTRR – UT Reason to Ride)¬†so I was asked to do something that combined cows and bikes, not a common request.
