The Yellow Jersey, or Maillot Jaune, to give it its French name, is worn by the leading rider in the three-week-long race. The last two Yellow Jersey winners have been British cyclists Chris Froome and Bradley Wiggins.
For the Yorkshire in Yellow exhibition, design organisation Made North invited a host of local creatives to join a veritable peloton of international practitioners to create their own tribute to the Yellow Jersey, in the form of a T-shirt.
Alan Kitching, Margaret Calvert, M/M Paris and Wim Crouwel are among the international stars who have created designs, alongside local talent such as OWT, Studio Binky and Jason Mortimer from Brass.
A total of 111 designs have been created, to mark 111 editions of the Tour de France. For the exhibition, the designs will be turned into T-shirts and suspended from the gallery ceiling in the shape of a cycle-race peloton.
Organisers say a ‘very limited’ number of the T-shirts will be up for sale, and a commemorative pack of 40 of the designs will also be available.
The Yorkshire in Yellow exhibition is part of the Sheffield Design Week, which runs from 23-29 June and will also feature an Anthony Burrill exhibition and the Made North design conference.
Yorkshire in Yellow is at the Millennium Gallery, Arundel Gate, Sheffield, S1 from 31 May-7 September.
