  • Industry Revisits the Bicycle and Emerges with a Beautiful, SOLID Piece of Design

    THE BIKE DESIGN PROJECT - EPISODE 3 from INDUSTRY on Vimeo.

    Portland firm, Industry, has married its love of design and bicycles to create a new high-end concept design that re-envisions what a bike can be.

    The bike design project is the result of a lengthy eight month collaborative project between Industry and master titanium hand-built-bike expert, Ti Cycles. The team drew on their adaptive design philosophy, coupled with an experimental materials approach, to create SOLID, a concept design for a bicycle that is unlike any other.

    The concept bike aims to redefine the idea of what an urban bicycle can be while asking the question, “How do we inspire everyday cycling?”. SOLID is the marriage of traditional and advanced manufacturing methods. It uses an unbelievably cool titanium 3D printing process (we didn't even know you could do that) as its base for frame and handlebar construction and moves on to the futuristic, sporting haptic handlebars and GPS that tie to an app. The system actually recharges itself from the movement of the tires.

    The bike was developed as part of the Bike Design Project which aims to develop a next-wave urban bike. Five teams from cities all over the U.S. were selected to compete and develop a better bike for the everyday rider. The Portland team has been pitted against other big biking cities like Chicago, New York, San Francisco and Seattle.

    Industry has done an amazing job documenting their entire process through a website, photos and video. Their journey has been amazing and what they have emerged with at the end is nothing short of a work of beauty. Take some time to check out their process and throw them a vote (and then ask a friend to vote for them too). Voting is open until August 2nd.

    It is estimated that the legal marijuana industry will grow to $18 billion a year by 2018 and as of today, 22 states have some form of legalization. Oregon itself currently has 113 approved applications for medical marijuana dispensaries. As you might expect, a range of new advertising, publishing and digital business are being launched to support this relatively new industry.

    The Burning Issues panel discussion will take an inside look at this new market and how it is affecting publishers, advertising agencies and retailers locally and nationally.

    The event will be comprised of a panel of experts including:

    Wes Abney, publisher of the highly successful magazine Northwest Leaf and the new Oregon Leaf.
    Anthony Johnson, the Executive Director of the Oregon Cannabis Industry Association (OCIA).
    Alexa Divett of Oregon’s Canna Marketing & Design Group.
    Ryan Mclean, owner of Bridge City Collective, Portland’s only two-location medical marijuana dispensary.
