Rad's Adventures

Design Driven

We explored Rad's adventurous nature in stop-motion, animation, and illustration. Rad was initially conceptualized by us for a Fuel TV (FOX) ID. We continue to add to Rad's story by sharing moments from the many adventures Rad embarks on. 

Rad is an adventurer who likes to rock out and get lost on a hike. At heart, he is a cyclist, whose dream is to one day join the elite cyclists in France for the Tour of France. However, Giro D’Italia holds a special place in Rad's heart, since as a young HS student Rad lived for six months with an Italian family in the Dolomites Mountains. 

Rad is a dreamer, but also a diligent hard working cyclist, who loves eating baguettes after a long ride. Rad loves to relax and take in the beauty of nature. One day Rad hopes to return to the Dolomites Mountains to learn how to ski, but for now, he spends many hours a day preparing for the Tour of France, rocking out, and exploring a career in filmmaking.
