Working with 3 divisions of the brand from helmets to lighting to fitness, the challenges shift from edgy graphics to precision illustration always aiming for the target demographic.
Bell : The number one helmet brand worldwide. Born in California’s hot rod and racing scene, founder Roy Richter made things go fast. His need-for-speed was one with consequences however. His introduction of the helmet to the industry changed everything.
Bell is a massive company with several sub brands under one roof, so the focus is widespread. Over the years we have designed helmet graphics for both bike and skate models, technical illustration for Blackburn lights and accessories as well as print collateral and packaging for their fitness line.

The goal was to focus viewer eye balls on specific product features, demonstrating the equipment highlights. We accomplished this through stroke width and limited use of color, allowing white to represent the key feature of each illustration.
