Tour de France Infographic Poster

Information graphics about cycling that look like a bike wheel AND a zodiac? I'm smitten. One glance at this poster leaves me eager to devour the tiny details and learn more about this legendary event. Upon a more lingering gaze, the piece communicates the rhythm of tires through French countryside and the excitement of great gobs of people gathering to be part of something incredible. Like any decent infographic, this poster would look fabulous as a fabric pattern too!

The idea behind the Tour de France infographic/print started in 2010 as the World Cup was at full speed and the TdF getting started. Designers around the world were creating very compelling graphics looking at various aspects of the world cup. Realizing I hadn't seen anything similar for the Tour de France, loving cycling and similarly taken by the sporting events complexity and huge amount of data points; I set out to capture some of the basics of the bike ride. I like the idea of seeing posters for each year showing the variation in each route, commemorating the riders, the shifts in teams, prevalence of bikes, graphically showing the rider stage wins and of course the stage and overall winners.
