Bike to Work Day, posters and bragging

My Graphic Design students created posters for Bike to Work day. I've made a Flickr slide show of a few of my favorites. Check 'em out!

I've worked as a magazine writer/editor for more than 20 years, and this is very nice graphic desgn. You should be proud.

SF Bay area is the 15th. Could be otherwise elsewhere.

Nicely done. As a Creative Director, give my congratulations to them on work well done.

It's also cool that they are getting to work on a project that promotes quality of living, not just hyping a product.

Hey Curtis, how come none of the bikers on the posters aren't wearing an 'over 50's' jersey?
It finally got warm enough up here in ND that I wore mine for the first time last week! Thanks again for doing all the leg work for all of us!

Good job Curtis. Having talented students makes teaching even more rewarding. How long before you have them designing cycling jerseys?

Darn it, that's a great idea. How long? I'm thinking Tuesday.

San Diego County celebrates BtW day on the 16th. Is anyone going to take my oldest combined age of bike and rider (105 years) challenge?

Your students make better posters than some of the pros. I hope the PR leads to high B2W Day participation.
