“To inspire and empower people to travel by bicycle” – That is the goal of the Adventure Cycling Association.
The Adventure Cycling Association was in need of a way to recognize their donors, something that would recognize everyone, but still spoke to who they are. With a short 1 month turn around, Presentations began looking at photos taken by the Adventure Cycling Association to inspire the one-of-a-kind outdoor donor panel. The images created from these photos became the background to a collage of gears and chains to represent how the organization is being driven by the generous contributions of their members.
The original design is custom cut from aluminum and painted with metallic automotive paints for a durable outdoor finish. The design also allows for expansion with additional gears and chain. The piece was hung on an exterior wall at the Adventure Cycling Association headquarters in Missoula, Montana just in time for the July 6, 2012 Grand Opening of the new facilities.
Even though the Adventure Cycling Association was initially unsure about what they wanted in their custom recognition piece, Amanda F. Lipsey, the Development Director of the Adventure Cycling Association, stated once she saw the finished piece – “It is very us and fits us very well. I know the tight turnaround was difficult, but it has turned out beautifully and I’m so happy we can have it up for our opening.”
