What would look Good on a Snowboard?

Recommended Posts

Guest INDEPENDENZA

i must design the top and the bottom of a snowboard, and i was wondering what you guys would like to see on your board, or if you have examples of dope designs/color schemes/themes that i could bite from.

 

the company wanted a graffiti bboy looking angry, so i try to find other ideas. I thought of a sword with arabic caligraphy.

 

i suggest you post dope snowboard graphic

thast the problem with companies, all they want is bboys, tits, skulls, snakes, and guns. thats what graffiti is to them. and to quote a friend "they think all of us are haze".

no offense man, but if you cant even figure out how to come up with ideas, then perhaps you dont deserve the position your in and should pass it on to someone who is qualiffied artisticly and has an interest in the sport. if you draw them some generic graffiti shit, thats selling out, and i got no love for that. if they want tits and skulls, pass them on to giant and let him make money he deserves...

or he's right and you are trying to save yourself. anyone got ideas i can bite? i don't think the bboy is good enough. stop trying to save yourself and listen to someone once in a while.

I agree with this guy, and I think Seeking was a bit too quick to judge so harshly. As a designer, if you're not familiar with a certain target group, you must ask around and learn about it, and that's what Independenza seems to be doing. Plus, I'm sure he's got plenty of ideas, and is just asking around for yours to see the variety of opinions, and maybe get a better idea. Give the kid a break.

 

By the way, nice king. But I'm also partial to the donkey idea. Make a donkey dressed like a casino croupier. Beer,

mamero, i was 'quickly' replying to the fact that dude came on here and asked specificly for other graffics he could bite from. as far as im concerned, that just pathetic. especially if you are a graphic designer. and for a company to hire someone that has no clue about the market, thats even more ridiculous.

 

im not trying to start an argument about anything, obviously i dont know the whole story behind it, but i know that if it pisses on the rug, chews up your shoes and has four legs, its probably a dog.... you do the math.

I like that king picture. I don't know about that donkey. If the company wants an angry bboy why do you want to do a sword with arabic letters? Or did they ask for ideas with the angry bboy as a suggestion? Get a freeze frame from some snowboarding video game and put that on there. Or something. I don't know.

seeking, i understand why you are upset.

 

i was joking about the "biting" part: im really concerned about my stuff being original, originality is my motto, i work hard on it, and believe i would never be able to look at myself in the mirror again if i conciously copied any artistic concept.

 

The guys from the company are friends of friend and they are just starting, they dont have much capital and they dont know Giant.

 

I was enthusiastic about designing a snowboard. But what they asked me (angry bboy) wasnt the best idea.

My aim is to step further and propose them other graphic options.

As mamerro said, some input about snowboarding values from snowboarder could have helped me to enlarge my horizons.

 

And i didnt know people would be so anal about how i introduced the thread, but again, im not trying to save myself, im just putting the nuances that where missing.

mea culpa.
