We are looking for original creative designs for our longboard decks. We're looking for a design that follows an ocean theme that you'd see on a vintage t-shirt from the late '70s and '80s. I've uploaded an example of something the type of design that we're looking for and some vintage shirts that we like.
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 longboards are generally 40"x 10" in size but our template is 43" x 11".
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 edges of the document. Important design elements should be centered to best fit the gray area of the template as shown on the link below.
If you're chosen as the winner, when you submit your file it should look like the following image:
Please have no borders on your design. We might use the design on a different shaped board.
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.
