Ian Galvin is a young designer with petrol running through his veins. For his degree project in Detroit, he created a modern re-interpretation of the Vincent brand. He’s now a product designer with a passion for motorcycle illustration and a unique style that is attracting a lot of attention.
Galvin seems surprised at his success. “My first illustrations were really just a test,” he says. “But I started getting commissions, like the Ducati piece.” Since then, he’s worked for magazines such as Dwell and started selling his work as high-quality prints.
Ian’s own ride is a Triumph Speed Four that he’s planning to turn into a track bike, but he’s not averse to hiring a Yamaha Super Ténéré for longer rides up the west coast of the USA. He’s hopped off the bikes to create four wallpapers for Bike EXIF readers, sized for both computer monitors and iPads. Choose your favorite here.
