Statement

My project is based on and dedicated to skateboarding. The focus is on the culture of skateboarding and its relation to location and the people that make up the skater community. My goal was to create a brand that embodies the New Bedford skate scene, while also fulfilling a life-long desire of mine to contribute my own artistic identity to skateboard design. I’ve been able to reflect on how skateboarding has influenced my personality, interests, and understanding of community, as well as giving it credit to leading me into studying graphic design. The work I’ve done is a celebration of self-discovery and the feeling of belonging to a community.
