13 | Skateboard Deck Design

 

In 2013 I designed a pair of decks for my partner and I sixth anniversary together.

Rob used to skate and due to a knee injury, he now collects decks. We have more than 40 decks handing on one of our walls at home.

Many moons have passed since our sixth anniversary, and in recent years I have created the habit of designing a pair of decks for our anniversaries. Each pair of skateboards reflect the emotions and state of affairs of our relationship. You can check past designs here:

Six / Sis
Nine / Nou
Ten / Deu
Eleven / Onze
Twelve / Dotze

 

 

Thirteen / Tretze Skaboard design rationale

Blackletter was an obvious choice for this year’s anniversary: Small counters, very small letter/personal space.

I’m happy to share that despite the intense conviviality of the last eighteen months, this global pandemic has only strengthened our 13-year relationship, which makes my heart sing.
