As you can probably tell I’m really getting into hand painted helmets with this being the private collection done by BMD Design. I keep looking all over the internet and there really aren’t a lot of examples up to the high standards I like to post on Moto Verso. As a collection these custom helmets are an amazing example of free hand typography along with some super fine detailed graphics. I tend to put my favourite image as the feature and this is no exception, the hornet design is stunning on the gold finish. I like how they have wrapped the design around the 9 along with the really cool font used for the word’ Infamous’.
I really like the use of colours in this collection from the dark blood red on black to the really sweet looking red and blue skeleton design on the white helmets. I really like the there style of graphics, look really simple but to get the right image and design takes a lot of skill to balance it all up. I’d really like the Moto Verso logo to be done in this style but I just don’t have the skills to pull it off. I really want to start doing these and have the perfect space for a bank of helmets that I intend to customise like these boys. I’ll keep gather inspiration first though.
BMD Design are based in Bordeux, France. They specialise in typography, graphic design and textile design and have produced some really cool t-shirt and logo designs. They have a totally unique style, producing logo’s for the likes for Fuel Motorcycles and many others. There hand painted calligraphy style has a vintage feel of a forgotten age of sign writing. It’s always a cool look and they have achieved this perfectly on this collection of painted helmets.
