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)Â so I was asked to do something that combined cows and bikes, not a common request.

A fun little iPhone game that needed some graphics. The first thing was to come up with 3 colors that logically implied good, not so good, and bad. I made a few different sets of faces just to add variety: Dweebs, Monsters, Anime, and Curmudgeons.
Identity for Ciretose, an iPhone software developer. We wanted something that had a story. Since Ciretose specializes in software for Apple products, we took inspiration from the “Apple key”.
