SKATEBOARD DESIGN CONCEPT. I have always been inspired by skateboarding and music when creating and developing my designs. I wanted to explore making my skateboard deck. I purchased a plain deck online and began researching the correct dimensions for the design for the board. I used a combination of Procreate on Apple iPad and Adobe Photoshop CC to finalise the design. I decided to limit the illustration to one colour and use halftones to add texture and shading. The illustration was printed onto an A1 waterproof vinyl sticker to prevent any colours from running. I applied the sticker to the deck and then removed any excess to allow a flush finish. The trickiest part was the placement and alignment and to prevent any air bubbles from appearing.
