Design Process

Design Concept

First Design

York-Eglinton BIA holds the east edge of Little Jamaica. There is a rich history in the area. Therefore to capture that history many different ideas were sketched out.

Design Shortlist

Out of these many sketches three were chosen to be further developed.

Final Concept

Choosing the best design

There is a rich musical history in the area. Therefore to capture that history the the record player motif design was chosen.



To accurately replicate the dimensions and form and to keep costs low the bike ring was laser cut from sheets of carboard. This was then glued together to give the ring the proper thickness followed by a paint job to emulate Corten steel.
