Stage 17 / “Grading Dots” / 2014

A poster produced with Kieran as the collaborator. He is one of only 3 people outside of Lead Graffiti staff that did a poster all 5 years. Nice to see one of his included.

This day we fell in love with a cyclist named Rafal Majka. He tore up a very difficult mountain, picking up enough King of the mountain points to be able to wear the jersey the next day. As he got to the top he casually looked over at the cameraman riding on a motorcycle next to him and winked. Twice.

This poster has to be in the top 5 at the minimum. Actually at the end of sorting out these posters I’m going to figure out which ones are my favorite 5. That will be cool to know.

We had 3 good designers in the studio collaborating on this day saw the riders on a narrow mountain road that scarcely would have managed a single car. Instead of just working on a poster we set up a size and let each designer just do whatever they wanted and then we just overprinted them.

It ends up having a nice kind of complexity that resembles the chaos of the peloton.

The tally for the TdLG years so far.

2011 - 48 points
2012 - 27
2013 - 32
2014 - 14
2015 - 16
