Skate and SnowBoard

 

Customized with Montana 94 and Posca

A snowboard and a skateboard that each address the same thematic background : global warming. For the first I used the title of the song 'Blackened' - from Metallica. And for the skateboard I used the statistical averages observed those last 10 years... but I'll come back to it a little further down.

Snowboard

A Snowboard from Bataleon

I got this snowboard - declassed from sales - during my mission at Atila Network in Battice. An old model of 160 cm from Bataleon.

I wanted to use typography in large - and very big - size... but what could I write ? The title of one of my favorite songs written by Metallica : Blackened. And it's by leaning on the lyrics that ideas came naturally. First for this snowboard, then for the skateboards below.

Creating around global warming without any 'clichés' or melodrama and giving a strong visual impact. A serious and dramatic typeface highly contrasted by the white background spotted with red stain - It was to satisfy my desire to exploit the red colour that would bring a tragic note.

Skateboard recto

Skateboard recto : Co² emission

It can be read on many environmental websites - it would be tedious to list here - the increase of the greenhouse gas rate - and more precisely the Co² - in the atmosphere raises to 7.5% those last 10 years.

Integrating a totally invented typography with incomprehensible words that perfectly represents these alarming warnings which most people don't seem to understand the emergency. We can write what we want because nobody will pay attention.

Skateboard verso

Skateboard verso : the melting of the ice floe

On the other side of the skateboard one of the major repercussions of this Co² increase is the melting of the ice floe. What resulted a decrease of about 13% of its total surface.

What we can think about the blue colour might be the solution... or any positive outcome. But it's not. It represents the melting of ice floe and causes the rise of the oceans with its dramatic repercussions : tsunami, cooling of the gulf stream, floods...
