Probably, you might be thinking what’s the association between Bicycle and Art? Don’t be surprise because that’s the creativity! Uniquely combining the passion for bicycle and art, all the products you see here are original designs created and are limited to (as the number suggests) 100 copies.
Each piece of work is watermarked, labeled with the title and edition number. As such, no two copies are every completely identical. Take a closer look and you will notice the paintings are crafted using bicycle tracks!
Meet Thomas Yang, Designer/Creative Director
the brandchild of 100copies as he bring us through his inspiration..
As an avid cyclist, I was trawling through the web looking for a few cool cycling posters to put up in my apartment. That’s when I noticed that there weren’t too many choices available. So as a Designer/Creative Director myself, I decided to create a series of designs that revolved around my love for cycling.
Before I started selling online, I needed a name for my brand and I wanted every creation to be a limited edition. I googled and a common range was between 50 – 300 copies. I had an idea that time that I needed 2 “0” in the brand in order in fit a bicycle symbol between them. The lesser copies the better and so all I could think is “100”. That led to the formation of 100copies which I thought and name was quite easy to remember.
Following this, I created www.100copies.net so that I could share my unique creations with other cyclists all around the world who are also looking for cycling-inspired designs. With the advantage of being a cyclist myself, each design concept on 100copies is based on different insights coming from cyclists like fixie, BMX, road and mountain bikers.
If you have noticed, there’s always a short rationale on each design before you decide to buy a poster or t-shirt. To reassure my buyers that they own a limited edition of the design, I decided to list their names and countries once a particular design is totally sold out.
This is one of the ways to make all my customers feel good once they owned 100copies’ product. Is like hall of fame with your name and edition number listed on the website. A certified original creation by 100copies both online and the product itself (Each piece of work is watermarked, labeled with the title and edition number).
