Year 8 VCD Skateboards


The year 8 Visual Communication and Design students have been studying product and communication design. Creating their own skate brands, students identify a target audience to create an eye catching logo and skateboard design. Utilising Adobe Illustrator students learn new design skills and techniques to create a logo for their brand.


Using a wide variety of inspiration students plan, draft, and refine their chosen design for their skateboards. Using their drafts students problem solve and find the best solution to transfer their design onto the skateboard deck. With a variety of methodical options to choose from students paint, spray, and draw to create their boards. This week the students have started transferring their designs onto the boards, which we will continue and finalise in the coming weeks.


The designs are eye catching, distinctive, and reflect the personality of each individual student.
