We are looking for original creative designs for our skateboard decks. We want a hot rod/monster theme with vibrant colors. I've attached a few samples that show the art style that we're looking for. We'd like to keep the art at the center of the skateboard with just a plain solid vibrant color in the background as shown in the sample skateboard graphic.
Here are some more samples of what we like: http://www.vsrnonline.com/bdr_ads/WeldonArt_1.htm
Branding: Please don't use any car logos in your design.
Fonts: Please outline any fonts if used in the design.
Colors: Don't limit your colors to the samples we've shown. Feel free to choose colors that will fit your design. Just make to keep them vibrant.
Template: Please use the template that we've attached. The main focus of your artwork should fit within the red outline. Please have your background color extend to the outer black outline. The black circles on template indicate where the skateboard trucks are going to be attached.
If you decide to use stock images for your design, please make sure to have the proper licensing. (enhanced license)
If you plan to use photos, please make sure they're the proper size (300 DPI). Our skateboards are generally 32" x 8.5" in size.
In addition, if we leave positive feedback on your designs please leave your previous submissions as well. Sometimes we'll prefer your original work over the changes we asked you to make. We're aiming for one graphic but like in our previous contests, we might choose two.
