Some folks say that we get to have all the fun, we’d have to agree.
Together with our partners at Oy, Nike asked us to give a heroes home coming welcome to their employee athletes who took part in the 2010 Étape du Tour. This year a group of 34 cyclists trained for six months to combat the infamous stage from Pau to Col du Tourmalet, including the treacherous final climb which has become part of cycling folklore.
Inspired by Nike’s innovative Chalkbot, we headed out to their European headquarters in Hilversum and sprayed congratulatory messages to all the participants, showing the encouragement and support of their friends and colleagues. With help from our mates at Goed Bezig, we managed to pull off a pretty impressive and iconic environmental display. Check out more images here.
Wetransfer identity design by Dolly Rogers
The latest work to come out of the Dolly Rogers studio is this fresh identity we designed for the digital platform of a brand spanking new, super fast file transfer service called Wetransfer. The business brains and developing genius behind this entrepreneurial venture is our mate Nalden together with the brilliant folk at Oy Communications.
We were stoked to work together with them on designing the identity and website which has already been listed as one of StumbleUpon’s top 5 rated websites.
The greatest thing about being Dolly Rogers is that we get to work with super nice and extremely talented people, who are our friends. I’d like to introduce you to the talented young Victor De Bie.
He asked us for a website with a cms to showcase his plethora of artworks and accessories, together with his commercial styling work. We’ve just launched www.victordebie.com. Designed by us fine folks here at Dolly Rogers and masterfully built by Erik Escoffier.
