The Rice University Graduate Student Association’s 2017 Beer Bike theme is a nod to the world renowned French electronic duo, Daft Punk.
Beer Bike is a tradition at Rice University where alumni and current students come together to participate in friendly relay competition of chugging and bike racing. Back when the legal drinking age was 18, the chuggers drank beer and even though all teams have transitioned to water, spectators of the race keep up the tradition. Each year, the teams choose themes that parody current pop culture references or either aspect of the event (eg drinking or biking). I wanted this shirt design to feature a little of both, so the duo is riding tandem with tall boys.
Designs were used on shirts and reusable cups at the event.
