What is the Ed Hardy Chopper?

The Ed Hardy Chopper was uniquely designed to represent the clothing label for the promotions of Ed Hardy Australia.

What was the brief?

Ed Hardy International came to Snake Charmer Choppers with the vision of a truly unique marketing tool that embodied their brand. What they wanted was something that would encompass the items of fashion that Ed Hardy was best known for. After spending some time researching everything about Ed Hardy we settled on; An Ed Hardy watch, Ed Hardy leather bracelet, Ed Hardy chuck taylors, Ed Hardy flip flop thongs, Ed Hardy t-shirt and Ed Hardy jeans.

With the design elements finalised it was only a matter of time before another award winning, one of a kind chopper rolled out of the Snake Charmer Choppers workshop. Ed Hardy International were amazed by the finished product as were the public when the bike was launched at Auto Salon to much acclaim. Ed Hardy had tasked Snake Charmer Choppers with creating a unique advertising tool that would connect with people young and old while leaving a positive and lasting impression and that is just what we did.
