[ graphic identity | t-shirtism ]
Edward Black is a young semi-pro skateboarder based in London. I was contacted by him, initially with the proposal of designing a graphic identity for his sport activity, but when he eventually signed a deal with a deck builder in Manchester the project expanded to the design of the deck, griptape and some apparels. The idea was to keep the design as simple as possible, playing with the white colour as an opposition to Edward's lastname, and finally adding some design elements from his African-American roots.
