SK8 FOR GR8 DECK
I was asked to contribute to the Sk8 for Gr8 social enterprise start-up, a progressive mentoring initiative
that pairs up talented designers with children in need of the opportunity to broaden their mind-sets.
We hosted 4 workshops over 2 weeks, in which we explored the processes of design: researching, brainstorming,
creating and executing. During this time, each designer took inspiration from their mentee, resulting in the design
of a skateboard deck. An exhibition was then held whereby each board was auctioned off with proceeds going
to the children's community.
Check out the rest of the boards here and Allison's awesome initiative here.
