To a packed audience, we gave a 30 minute talk from our own point of view about the evolution of bike polo, from the perspective of both game and equipment design.
We weren’t too sure what the set up would be like on the night. But we did our best to represent bike polo in an interesting and positive light. Several people come up to us after, asking more about how to get involved in bike polo, so that’s only got to be a good thing.
Seeing Todd ride through the crowd and do a skid stop on the Design Museum conference room carpet covered floor, was one of my highlights of the evening.
The talk was recorded by Resonance 104.4fm, so you should be able to catch it as a podcast in the coming days.
Overall, I think the Bike V Design night was a huge success. I heard word that the event might come back next year, bigger and better – lets hope so.
Thanks to Alice and Steven at the Design Museum for giving cosmic the opportunity to be involved. It was such great fun to be amongst such a rich mix of speakers, exhibitioners and performers from the bike world.
To coincide with the current exhibition exploring the tension between sport and design, Designed to Win, the Design Museum is hosting Bike v Design – a celebration of all things bicycle.
Cosmic will be taking part in the event by talking about the evolution of bike polo and the equipment used as well as our teams visual identity.
We’re really stoked to have such an opportunity to be a part of this. Although, we’re a bit nervous, I’m sure it’s going to be a lot of fun.
