Project #4 – Instructions!

Alright boys and girls Project #4 is here – Design a skateboard for Booooooom! The good folks over at Popdeck made this one possible, so a big thank you to them. This is your chance to design a skateboard and have it sent to you! One month from now I will select the three most creative submissions and then we’ll have a vote. The winning submission will be made available on Popdeck, for the extremely low price of $35, and the winner will receive their own skateboard via mail – free of charge! Accepting submissions until October 25th.

The design can have as much or as little to do with Booooooom as you want but it must be original work! Just be creative!

Hit “more” for the link to the skateboard template files and the rest of the instructions.

Photoshop-literate people: Please use the templates provided in the zip below and submit a jpg using the skateboard_template.psd file (template will look like the skateboards pictured above).

Non-Photoshop-literate people: Scan your images (or import your photos) as large as possible and submit a smaller version of your work (less than 1 megabyte), like you have for all the previous projects, realising that I will have to take your artwork and implement it on the skateboard the best I can.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Do not submit your high resolution artwork! Hold onto it, and if you are selected as the winner, I will request the high res artwork from you at that point.

Here is the skateboard template:


Be sure to include your name, email, and website if you have one!

Have fun!

Submit your own entry!
