linvillegorge Doesn't REI and Arbor do a collaboration every year for an REI only board where the graphics are determined by a contest?

I wish someone would make a snowboard with graphics of a bear and a sasquatch fighting with chainsaws. I have a buddy who is an illistrator for Disney. Dude can flat out draw. I may have him draw something up for me. I mean, seriously... how fucking badass would a board be if it featured chainsaw wielding sasquatch and bear in a fight to the death? Fucking awesome

The top graphics would do fine using sublimation on a sintered base. In general, it's extruded bases that are harder because the graphics can't be sublimated with digital printing. Die-cutting is independent of base material; it's just "something you can do". I don't, because while the bold color is nice the possibility of the die-cut coming loose isn't worth the effect to me.

The first two are definitely not good die-cut candidates. #1 COULD be done on extruded w/ a silkscreen - it's only what, 2 colors? #2 would need sublimated or, alternately silkscreened with halftones. But either would do fine on a higher end model with a sintered base.

As for the proposed "paper first" workflow, this depends greatly on what your design is, and also your equipment. If you have a Cintiq, paper isn't "necessary" unless you just happen to like it. If your art is collage, or shape and composition-driven like these, straight to Illustrator works just fine. As an aside, only one of Echelon's graphics was begun on paper (the "tools" being Wacom and Illustrator), and they worked out OK. The "SuperCarrier" did actually start as a sketch, but that was more to do with when I had the idea than because it was needed.

Anyway - nice work; they look clean.

Graphics take more than just buying photoshop and playing with some preset patterns, filters and typestyles. You have to actually sketch out/develop ideas out on paper, first...then go through a series of several versions/mockups (thumbnails) before developing a finished product. I have an associates degree in graphic design, so I'm not just making this shit up.
LOL you can create art anyway you like. You sound pretty egotistical bro... let us all bow to your associates degree lol.

Metal War Ducks!!, or a sweet Platypus vs Wombat fight.
camp seven is an actual existing company, im just putting there name of the board to get used to placing it, they plan on having a design contest maybe

These were merely just brainstorming, getting into the flow of it designs, right now i am working on a full out design. And again, camp seven is an existing company haha
