Creative Ambassador for prominent cycling lifestyle apparel brand, AprÃ¨s VÃ©lo, Delly Carr is loving this addition to his CV. The world-renowned photographer was appointed at the end of 2013 and is playing an instrumental role in the creation of images and visual assets that is showcasing the AprÃ¨s VÃ©lo range in a light not seen before.
AprÃ¨s VÃ©lo CEO, Leonard Greis, said Carr’s appointment has been an exciting development for the brand.
‘We’re thrilled that Delly is producing a range of exclusive and compelling images that provides an added dimension for our existing customers and helps us to share our unique range with new audiences.
“Delly’s persona and talents fit perfectly with what the AprÃ¨s VÃ©lo brand is all about. We are both fun, quirky, creative and at the top of our field when it comes to quality.
“When considering appointing an ambassador for the brand we wanted someone who can actively contribute to our brand’s development as opposed to simply a ‘face’. With Delly we now have one of the world’s most talented and creative visual artists as an integral member of the AprÃ¨s VÃ©lo team,’ said Greis.
In his role, Carr works with AprÃ¨s VÃ©lo to further shape and enhance the look and feel of the AprÃ¨s VÃ©lo brand and creates imagery that harnesses the attitude and powerful graphics of the AprÃ¨s VÃ©lo range. Carr’s imagery is featured on all AprÃ¨s VÃ©lo communication platforms and culminates in an annual ‘look book’ that celebrates cycling culture and fashion.
Carr describes his appointment as Creative Ambassador as a natural fit and an exciting opportunity.
“It was only a few minutes into my first meeting with AprÃ¨s VÃ©lo and the reasoning for this Ambassadorship became so clear. Sure, our attention to detail and quality were so closely aligned. But there was so much more. AprÃ¨s VÃ©lo is innovative. AprÃ¨s VÃ©lo is fun. AprÃ¨s VÃ©lo represents a passion. And most importantly, AprÃ¨s VÃ©lo thinks outside of the square. In my 25 years of professional photography, these are the same foundations where I have based my success on: personality and creativity.”
“I can’t be more excited. The electrical impulses within the right side of my brain have already started buzzing,” said Carr.
AprÃ¨s VÃ©lo and Carr collaborated on an exclusive range of AprÃ¨s VÃ©lo ‘Delly Carr Edition’ T-shirts, which will be proudly worn by Carr and available for purchase by Carr’s legion of fans and AprÃ¨s VÃ©lo customers. AprÃ¨s VÃ©lo will also shortly be releasing a range of triathlon inspired apparel in conjunction with one of the world’s leading triathlon lifestyle brands.
