The challenge was
Create the perfect design for a skateboard deck
Turn "skate or die" into "design or die"!
For this challenge we've partnered with CCS* and we want you to bring the art of skate culture back to the canvas it was intended for: a skateboard! Decks aren't just good for tearing up a halfpipe - they can also be displayed as a wall hanging to give home decor a whole new twist. With this in mind, design a piece of art for a deck that would look just as good on the street as it would on your wall.
The art of skate culture has left a lasting mark on the world of visual arts. Channel the vibes of this edgy, iconic art form and make a display-worthy deck that skaters & non-skaters alike would appreciate.
