This news went straight through my fingers and I forgot to put it up a few weeks ago but no despair, some of my brain cells are still functioning the way they should still and I do keep archives. Lucky me… it’s always great to get to see a new series of decks used as a real possibility for artists / designers / skaters to show some of their talents on a plank of wood.
Carhartt has brought out three series of team-designed boards which are – sniff – not for sale. They can be seen at exhibitions, in Carhartt shops, some skateshops and some lucky person/s can also win a set in their local magazine (I’m looking into which magazine they mean by the way!).
Pontus Alv (Malmoe/ Sweden), Christoph Merkt (Basel/ Switzerland) and Hugo Liard (Lyon/ France)
Vincent Gootzen (DÃ¼sseldorf/ Germany), Tobias Albert (Munich/ Germany) and Mat Fowler (London/ UK)
Ben The (Annecy/ France), Anton Juul (Copenhagen/ Denmark) and Christian Neuenschwander (Zurich/ CH)
