House Industries Inks New Kentucky Kid Lettering for MotoGP Indianapolis

Ducati Factory MotoGP team rider and Alpinestars athlete Nicky Hayden celebrated his return to his home race at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway with a new House Industries interpretation of his Kentucky Kid moniker.

Hayden, an Owensboro, Kentucky native, is a member of the Ducati factory MotoGP team and was the 2006 MotoGP World Champion.

After discussing several options at the Laguna Seca MotoGP race in July, Hayden and House chose one of its timeless lettering styles with a heavy drop shadow to provide maximum contrast and readability from a distance as well as at speed. The logo gives a subtle nod to motor culture and rises from House’s explorations in classic studio lettering techniques over the last two decades.

House Industries, the worldwide leader in high performance custom lettering and typography, worked closely with the artisans and technicians from Alpinestars in Italy to optimize the proportions and positioning on the suit.

As part of Alpinestars Apex Initiative, the House Industries Kentucky Kid project came together in an unprecedented union of typography, lettering, design and racing.
