Ride Vale - Be Fast, Be Free!Vale Bikes logo won the A'Design Award in 2017
The logo needed to reflect that the Vale Bikes are rare and exclusive while they are strong and handmade. It also had to depict freedom, speed, elite and seriousness.
Peregrine Falcon is the world's fastest animal when nose-diving for prey. Which depicts the speed of the bike. It also conveys a feeling of racing. While diving, the falcon brings its wings close to its body. The wing is shaped into a thunder-bolt to depict the strength of the bike. In the negative space between the wing and its' body a path/road is formed which represents the name of the brand "Vale". Vale is a word derived from Latin and Old English meaning "Valley".
