Graphic design workshops give kids insight on what graphic design is and its importance in skateboarding. From logos, to skateboards, to clothing, to ads, graphic design is a key part of any company that visually communicates with their audience.
5 groups of 3 were assigned to create a skateboarding footwear ad with a twist. All participants had to promote the same shoe but targeting a specific audience, creating a unique style for each. They had to work together to find the best photo(s), angles, colors, layout and overall composition to really show the style in the best way possible.
Groups then had to present their work and like any other graphic designer out there, explain the decisions they made and really “sell” you on an idea, that they’re solution is the best one out there. — Andres Alfonso, graphic designer.
