Want to Know How We Designed it?

It all started with a spark of inspiration from the original logo on Burt Munro’s 1920 Indian Scout. The idea was to recreate the native Indian’s face and headdress so that he would be facing forwards and popping out of the white pinstriped circle.

We started off by doing an accurate sketch as to how the composition and style would work, scanned it, and then created a vector version in Adobe Illustrator. From there we added in the words ‘Burt Munro Challenge’ and styled them in a similar fashion to the ‘Munro Special’ writing that supports the logo on the original bike.

We didn’t stop there though. The next step was to add some distress and realism to the design, so we took it on ourselves to photograph the original bike at E Hayes and Sons and capture some of the blistering and scratches on the paint to incorporate into our design.

The end result turned out great and showcases the original logo in a new and fresh perspective, while retaining the same look and style to stay true to it’s roots.
