7. Vintage Skateboard Asethetic

I have started to look at the aesthetic design of vintage skateboards (More in sketchbook) to help me when i come to create the whole look of the vintage half of my brand, looking at colour, shape and pattern. These 70s cruiser style skateboards tend to have alot of natural wood showing with a simple logo or pattern on both sides of the board, usually in one colour. The boards themselves are flat and shaped like miniature surfboards as skateboarding was more like surfing on the concrete when it first began, kick tails and grip tape where not necessary as they where just used for cruising around.
