Inside the World of Board Graphics

Board book from Modern Dog & Rockport

During my time at Modern Dog Design Co, I had the opportunity to work on this fun book, my first, Inside the World of Board Graphics with a handful of local writers and my bosses, Mike Strassburger and Robynne Raye. ​​​ ​

The cover was a fun process; I went with a

watercolor angle, something I hadn't yet seen on a skate / surf / snowboard book. The interior of the book was a major project, however. Being involved in all of the page layouts, photo placement, and even interviews of the board artists was an enjoyable bucket of blood, sweat and tears.

Submission Pages

We decided to have people submit photos of their personal boards to use as a preface for each category of snow/skate/surf within the book. Each board is unique yet it comes together nicely as a spread.
