“Graphics for snowboards” Follow Lesson no. 2 by Maestro Isacco

lesson N°2

For snowboards that stand out in a crowd

Once we've designed the snowboard's shape and chosen our materials, the time comes to consider the graphics that'll make the board unique.

Every time we consider the graphics side here at team Funky, we like to do a bit of brainstorming. And that includes the snowboarders among us!

Funky mood, Funky style

Graphics to express the Funky mood. The world we create is a world of fun, of colour, of the best of the 80s and 90s. We look back, but we look forward too. It's got to be modern, hip - something people notice when it finally hits the slopes!

Matching and choosing the colours are fundamental steps. This is what decides the final look and impact of our board.

The sources of inspiration for graphics

The graphic elements for the snowboard that we'll use for our lessons is based very much on the kind of tee-shirt tops basketball players used to wear in the 1990s. The ideas can come from anywhere. The mood we choose, or the ambit, may have something to do with snowboarding. Or maybe not. This kind of contamination is what makes Funky boards so unique!

Any style feature can be used for snowboard graphics.
