Design & Art Direction



We wanted a way for new hires at AKQA to get to know each other and the city of San Francisco. This led us to creating the Pilot: a tandem bicycle that helps new starters at a company to find new places and meet new friends.


Using built-in GPS, Pilot directs its riders to an undisclosed location by signaling left and right turns via haptic signals and LED lights built into the bike’s handlebars.


After the ride, the app shows the final destination, the route taken to get there and gives riders a voucher to spend with their new found friend.
