About Us

Formed in 2011 by founding owner Jake Preston. 57 Designs is a UK based company, incorporated in June 2020, when we moved to our new purpose- built design studio and showroom.

Jake has been racing Motocross bikes competitively for many years around the world (and still is) so he knows his way around a bike, as well as the track! Jake prudently took up graphic design after school (in between racing) so he could concentrate on his other passion - design and 57 Designs was born.

We produce high-quality, customised graphics specialising in the off road MX Industry. 

With 100% customer satisfaction in mind, we use only the highest quality materials to produce a unique product tailored to your requirements.
