Metro Jam BMX Contest Logos

Logos for the Metro Jam contest series. I oversaw the entire Metro Jam BMX contest series, from conception to logo(s) creation, doing the ads, website, writing copy and press releases right through to running the actual event. We’d change up the logo and look every couple years to keep the look fresh. The Metro Jam contest series ran annually in both Toronto and Vancouver from 2001-2006, and in 2007 we took the contest to Singapore for the RushHD television channel.

The Metro Jam contest series was one of the most anti­cip­ated street contest events of the cal­en­dar year drawing many of the world’s top pro­fes­sional riders – and most proudly, pulling in riders that had shied away from con­tests once the large TV con­tests like the X-Games had tar­nished the com­pet­it­ive scene.

Metro Jam BMX Contest Ads

Ads for the Metro Jam BMX contest series. I oversaw the entire Metro Jam BMX contest series, from conception to logo(s) creation, designing the ads, website, writing copy and press releases right through to running the actual event. Each year the contest would take on a different look/colour scheme, and rotate through a few different logos to keep things fresh. The Metro Jam contest series ran annually in both Toronto and Vancouver from 2001-2006, and in 2007 we took the contest to Singapore for the RushHD television channel.

Metro Jam BMX Contest T-Shirts

For each Metro Jam contest a new t-shirt would be designed for promotions and to be handed out for each competitor, team managers, industry people and volunteers. Shirts would sometimes include collaborations with the popular BMX website Defgrip.

Metro Jam BMX Contest Promotional Video

A short video for potential sponsors as part of a sponsor/media package to showcase the Metro Jam BMX contest experience, and how it differentiates from the big TV contests. Filmed by Brian Hunt plus some additional footage provided by Props, I put together the edit, and intro graphic.

2005 Toronto Metro Jam BMX Contest Highlights Video

A Pro Highlights reel from the 2005 Toronto Metro Jam BMX contest at the Ricoh Coliseum. This video was put together within a couple days of the contest finish, which was pretty much unheard of back in 2005.

The Metro Jam is a BMX contest series we put on from 2001-2007. Flying in on the Thursday evening of each contest, we’d stay up all weekend doing the event and after parties/video premieres, then tear down the course late into Sunday night, and finally jumping on a plane first thing Monday morning back to Vancouver.

For this video, after I got home, I then stayed up for the next 2 days straight through reviewing the footage, importing and editing this highlights clip to get onto the Ride BMX Magazine website for the Wednesday morning.

What doesn’t kill you, makes you stronger, and these contests just about killed me every time. I don’t miss doing these things at all. Okay, maybe a bit.
