There are few cycling accolades as prized and revered as the ‘Maillot Jaune’, or yellow jersey. Worn by the leader of the Tour de France since 1919, the jersey has become a symbol for the talent, hard work and dedication needed to lead the Peleton, which constantly snaps at the heels of the wearer.

The ‘Maillot Jaune’ has become a style icon as well as a sporting emblem and the Yorkshire in Yellow project celebrates this distinctive feature of the Tour’s heritage. MADE NORTH invited local, regional and international contemporary artists, designers, and creatives to design their own tribute to the ‘Maillot Jaune’ in the form of a yellow T shirt. From simple drawings or doodles, to more complex and detailed designs.

Visitors to Sheffield can see the Yorkshire in Yellow T shirts on display at the city’s Millennium Gallery from June to September 7th 2014. Yorkshire in Yellow is also part of Sheffield Design Week, a festival connecting design, craft, architecture and creativity across the city led by MADE NORTH.

Yorkshire in Yellow is a partnership between Museums Sheffield and MADE NORTH, a platform for northern designer/makers.

Designer

Yorkshire born, Mick exhausted his early ambitions of Premiership football or rock stardom and graduated from Leeds Metropolitan a fully fledged designer. Moving straight into commercial illustration the commissioning world embraced him with high profile jobs and exhibitions both sides of the pond.

Mick’s website is called the futile vignette, the name came from the amount of ‘unsuitable’ commissioned work that I was producing which was subsequently rejected & replaced with something ‘a little less challenging’. Some of this work was exhibited in New York in 2004 (see screenprints) & the company name stuck.
