Birth of an Idea:
Putting an idea into existence is an absolutely thrilling endeavor, where imaginations can run wild….. Andrew returned home to Chicago after traveling the world and gained so much knowledge and new takes on routine approaches. The very first week of his return he traveled by bicycle. He went north south east and west. He realized the beauty within his community and beyond, and understood his origins with a clearer aspect as well as understood what it means be apart of the city he calls home Chicago.....
The First Ride:
He invited his friends to do a 7 day ride but taking 7 days out of your schedule is a hefty commitment for some. So a two day adventure was conceived; the North Loop Ride.
Imaginations Run Wild:
Natural Events Calendar, Time-lapse video of the transformational growth extravaganza of the prairie and all the different individual habitats in Northeastern Illinois, Tour guides, Maps, Illustrated map, mobile map, Trail guide book, Filed trips,…..
Over The Hills:
On their second ride they focused on the ease of the entire loop and honed in on any sections that may be potentially cumbersome for directional purposes. Structured their ideals, set forth a goal and decided to give it to the public.
Illustrate Your World:
Andrew envisioned a map that would highlight what the ride is and how to demonstrate it to the public. With black ink illustrations on a vintage map background. They sought out an Artist to collaborate on the project. Later in 2015 the map was created
