In Le Tour de France, cyclists receive points for reaching a mountaintop first. The leader of the classification is named the “King of the Mountains”, and wears the “maillot à pois rouges”, the polka dot jersey – a white jersey with red dots.
Polka dots are both serious and playful when identified with cycling. Denver’s Marczyk Fine Foods’ proximity to the mountains and their clean “M” logo inspired me to design a “polka dot” jersey for their 2014 jersey design. Image above is my inspiration board and the finished jersey is pictured below. Available at Marczyk Fine Foods.
