Annie Legrouix

If anyone has put their arts degree to use, it's surely Annie Legrouix. Having completed a hybrid environmental design program, studying industrial design, architecture and urbanism, Legrouix went on to create the dringdring enterprise, a collection of handpainted bike bells beloved the world over. Although made for her own personal use at first, Legrouix soon realized the attention she received from her newly adorned vehicle could be finessed into a business venture, one that is popular, eco-friendly and socially conscious. Since 2005, Legrouix's bells have reached far beyond the Canadian border, being featured in multiple international publications. Now, who said that bikes can only take you so far?
