Rome Snowboards
Board Graphics

Illustrations for the Rome Snowboard Design Syndicate.

Founded as the counter culture to corporate snowboarding, Rome embodies a fuck it attitude and a spirit of free will, all while maintaining a leading position in snowboard culture and product design.

In collaboration with the in-house art director, Charles worked to illustrate graphics for boards, products, and swag items that went into production during the 2017/18 Winter season.

Mechanic Snowboard.

Pulling from a vintage nautical theme, we designed the Mechanic graphic around and old sea voyage. By combining custom hand painted type with photographic and illustrative elements from old ships, foreign travelers, and inspiration from the illicit beverages that accompanied these voyages, we were able to build a finished piece of art that made its way to print for riders everywhere during the 2017 season.

Factory Rocker Snowboard.

We loved the intricate linework and typography found in vintage snake oil labels, along with the symbolic representation of their how their “cure all” claims applied perhaps even better to the feeling of going to take some turns. We left the designed mark on the top sheet of the board transparent, revealing the wood core beneath, and making every graphic slightly different. This “Mountain Distilled” snowboard went into production for the 2017 season.

Swag Items

Building off the momentum from our two snowboard graphics, we designed two simpler illustrations for the snowboard syndicate for use on koozies and flasks.
