At SuperHeroes we love motorbikes. We also love the enthusiasts who set up a bike shop and serve coffee, creating a cool hang-out like Rusty Gold Motorshop.
Together with San Diego-based illustrator Carter Asmann we’ve created this ad series for Rusty Gold, a local motor shop annex coffee bar in Amsterdam. Asmann only used coffee rings and a pencil to draw Rusty Gold Motorshop’s very own Yamaha XS650, a beautifully worn custom-built flat track racer. Next to this, he also used a BMW R100 and Easy Rider’s “Captain America” bike for the campaign.
Zoran Holtkamp, impassioned owner of Rusty Gold (and the XS650) is now selling Carter’s prints in his shop. Holtkamp: “It’s amazing to see the detail he puts in the drawings. And I love the idea of using the coffee rings. It’s so strong. Like our espresso shots.”
