Bicycle Plumbing is a remarkable local business in the Gordon Head neighbourhood of Victoria, BC. Business owner Erik John is an avid cyclist and has even completed a bike trek from Inuvik to Victoria along the famed Dempster Highway. When he started this new venture, Erik kept his commitment to live car-free and built a custom trailer for his bike with a van’s worth of plumbing supplies.
Bicycle Plumbing’s former logo was folksy – a line-drawing of his bike and trailer – but it had little connection to the plumbing aspect of the business. The new logo uses iconic shapes from each activity, creating a cohesive, tattooable design that is legible at both small and large sizes.
