I need your help!!!
I am a graphic design student and I am doing my senior thesis project on snowboard graphics. What I am doing is taking statistics from snowboarding’s history and making graphs and visuals out of that information and putting those graphics on boards. Some of the stuff is starting to look kinda cool. I’m trying to make boards represent the sport and culture.
This is where you might come in.
I need more information to represent and I am having trouble finding it.
I am looking for the order in which resorts opened to snowboarding and also the order in which resorts made terrain parks.
I am also looking for pro rider stance angles or competition results from back in the day around 80 to 97. I have found some stuff from 2006 2007 but nothing earlier.
Also I will take any suggestions. Anything you whant to see represented on your board?
I need a thesis advisor. I have talked to people at Burton and transworld but they keep blowing me off. I guess they don’t like students who spend 80% of there income on there products…
I am looking for some one who has been riding since the 70’s or early 80’s and has seen the formation of the culture of snowboarding AND/OR someone who is involved with any type of graphic or industrial design in snowboarding.
sorry about the long post but I am starting to get desperate and I would love to get some feed back.
