If you’re a boarder at heart - whether it’s skating, snowboarding, or long boarding - you’ve probably seen some awesome board designs out there. The graphics of boards are a big part of their appeal to riders and, with so much competition, board companies have to think very carefully about their designs.
For this brief, come up a custom design or illustration that you would like to see printed on the deck of a longboard. You could reference a drawing or a quote that inspires you, or anything that you reckon would look awesome on a board. We would advise creating a full custom illustration that covers the entire 'bottom' of the board, and that features a combination of lettering, graphics and other original elements.
To get started with this brief, create your own artboard outlines of a longboard, print lots of these templates (you don't have to print them full size) and then start sketching out some quick ideas; this is the time to experiment. Alternatively, if you have a quality design that you haven’t yet used, maybe this is the time to see it come to life? You could adapt it to fit this brief.
When you have a finished piece, try creating a mock-up of the board to see how your design works in situ, this can often help sell the idea to the client.
Here is a selection of images by awesome designers to give you some creative fuel! Remember don't copy this directly, use them as inspiration only.
