Ever wonder who is behind our Dakota Five-0 logos each year?
His name is Les Heisman and he is a fantastic artist and self taught photographer. Les is one of our on course photographers racers will see snapping photos throughout the day. He has done the artwork for the Five-O every year except 2012, when he stated that he was 'burned out'! So in 2012 we had an art contest for the design, and local artist Christian Baird took the win with his homeage to the Bacon Station design. We decided to do this again for 2013 and Les couldn't resist the competition and threw down my favorite design of all, the Glow in the Dark Skeleton design. After this he continued to hand draw each year's T-shirt, putting extraordinary details into each new design. We are proud of every year's artwork, and love the unique style he brings to our T-shirts. We always look forward to seeing what each year brings!
Here are some of the logos from years past.
