Shimano needed illustrations to accompany their Spring tuning guides. These illustrated manuals would show the viewer how to identify if their bicycle needed maintenance by showing dirt and worn down parts. I had to clearly draw out the components accurately to the original model as well as
interpret the provided text into understandable visual form. I limited myself to a simple black and tan color scheme then used other bold colors for call outs to the different components.
I was hired to create only the illustrations, the Shimano marketing department created the templates.
