Ambition Snowskates (http://www.ambitionsnowskates.com) is a high quality snowskate manufacturer based in Sherbrooke, Quebec. Snowskates are the winter version of skateboards. They could be compared to mini bindingless snowboards or skateboards without wheels. We are aiming for the same brand image as legit boarding companies such as Burton, Element, Plan B, Girl, etc. Check out our website http://www.ambitionsnowskates.com for more info.
Our company mainly target skateboarders who don't have anything to do during the winter, and snowboarders who want something fun to do when they're not on the mountain. The general audience is around 12 to 22 years old.
We are looking for someone to finalise our pro rider Alan Gerlach's top graphic idea for his pro model coming out this season. Please note that this graphic doesn't cover the whole board, but only a small portion of it (say around 1/5th of the snowskate. No need to design with a template, just make a graphic in the overall size of the draft below. We need the final graphic in vector format, and a maximum of 4 colors (idealy 3 colors), in order for it to be screenprinted. Please consider that the graphic is being printed on a black background. We had in mind using white, gray and lime green (as it is his board's base color).
As Gerlach comes from Minneapolis, he wanted his board graphic to represent him through all of the Minneapolis landmarks.
All of them are easyly searchable for reference photos on google and flickr.
-Wells Fargo tower
-Grain Belt Beer Sign
-Gold Medal Flour Sign
-Pillsbury A Mill
-stone arch bridge minneapolis
Our basic idea is to take these landmarks, put them together and change the words to fit our company. The Grain Belt Beer sign would be changed to "AMBITION SNOWSKATES", and change the circle-M logo to the Ambition logo (http://www.ambitionsnowskates.com/i…/alogo.jpg). The Gold Medal Flour sign would be changed to ALAN GERLACH,
probably in three parts as ALAN-GER-LACH.
Here is his rough draft idea: Please see his original rhough draft here: http://www.ambitionsnowskates.com/i…c_idea.jpg
Feel free to add in your creative touch, but please keep the original idea and all-around format of the draft.
