We are looking for original creative designs for our longboard decks. We want a surfer/beach theme but feel free to add extra elements that have to do with surfing. The key element of this design should be a surfer that's noseriding. For those who need some more direction, I sketched out a few rough designs. Your final design should like something like the attached longboard graphic that was designed for us here at 99designs. I'm also attaching a photo that we found on the web to give you folks an idea of what noseriding is.
I'd like to mention that for this design our target market is the college crowd.
Branding: Please don't use any surf board 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.
Template: Please use the template that we've attached. The main focus of your artwork should fit within the gray area. Please have your design extend to the outer black outline.
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.
If you'd like to show us a preview of how the design will look on a board there's a photoshop template that you can get from this site: http://www.vectorss.com/templates/s
