Long Story Short: Developing Graphics

A crème-colored Salsa Cutthroat bike rests on a weathered wall. Splashy waterbottle graphics match the bike graphics.

Seat tube graphic detail on a crème-colored Salsa Cutthroat features blue, orange, yellow, and black geometric shapes.

We take pride in the way our bikes look. Every paint scheme we put out is a product of hours spent creating mockups, comparing paint samples, flipping through Van Halen albums, and gawking at sweet vans. It's a tough job, but someone's got to do it—meet those people in our latest Long Story Short. Watch the creative process unfold as Salsa Creative Director Kelly MacWilliams and Art Director Collin Grant welcome us to their world of bike graphics and paint.
