CLIENT • Dominic John

ROLE • Branding, Consultant Editing, Art Direction


Having gained the backing of Merida Cycles, cinematographer Dominic John set out to explore the Highlands of Scotland with two friends in tow, on an unsupported bikepacking adventure. This journey traverses the highs and lows of both the landscape and the riders' mindsets, as the high temperatures and rough terrain make for a challenging three days in the remote wilderness.

Francworks developed the branding in collaboration with typographer David Abbott, creating a custom logotype for the film's identity. We also consulted on the edit and art direction throughout post-production. The film is soon to tour festivals nationwide, and you can watch the trailer above. For all screening requests please contact Dominic John via his website.
