“Small spaces discipline the mind, large ones weaken it.” – Leonardo
The Renaissance master was referring to rooms and interior design when he said those words. But as most experienced designers would concede, this idea extends to all kinds of art. Take bicycle bumper stickers, for instance.
Bumper stickers really don’t have that much space on them but it’s this restriction that makes designing them so interesting. It’s all about making the most out of what you’ve got. Their size forces designers to ask themselves what would make the most impact, given such a small amount of space.
Good typography, catchy statements, and interesting images are certainly time-tested ways to grab attention. However, the challenge of bumper sticker design is putting these things together in a way that isn’t only attention-grabbing, but tasteful as well. Anyone can count on swear words or images with shock value for attention but c’mon- that gets kind of boring after a while.
The following examples give just a few ideas on how you might want your bike stickers to turn out. Just be careful you don’t faceplant while grinding with these fun designs. That’d be… embarrassing.
