Three in one... my love for Barcelona, cycling (Dutchman) and screen printing combined ;).
'Endavant' shows the view from the 5th floor apartment that I lived in, situated in the heart of old maritime quarter Barceloneta, right at the Mediterranean Sea, where I daily woke up, with the landlord's race bicycle standing in between me and the view. In Catalan the expression 'Endavant' is used in different situations. 'Endavant' radiates positivity and represents progress. As cycling term it means 'Forward' and 'Ahead!'. But, even more rooted, when we talk about the progression of Catalunya's road to independence it also means 'forward'. The typeface on the bike's frame, as a secret wink, refers to the typographic 1932 cover of Catalunya's Estatut d'Autonomia (look that up in Google).
