There’s just nothing quite like that new custom skateboard smell. Today we got one of our own designs printed on a Custom Longboard for some serious downhill cruising, and I have to say it came out COMPLETELY AWESOME. Snapped a couple photos of this beauty before and after putting the trucks on.
How to Create This Custom Skateboard
(With Our Whatever Skateboard Design App):
This deck was designed here on the site a couple weeks ago with our board designer app. It took about 15 minutes playing around with settings and effects. Here’s the steps I used:
- Backgound (Step 1): using the circuitry background from the stock library in the design app
- Upload Images (step 2): uploaded a color paint splatter image found online and the One Giant Media “OG” logo in black and white
- Set Some Blend Modes (Optional, While Adjusting any Image): setting the blend mode in the “cool effects” panel on the OG logo and splatter to different options until it looked like this. Blend modes allow the images to be similar to transparent, but with different modes that make the colors mix in interesting ways.
- Added Text (Step 3): “Whatever” Text at bottom
I have to say the pictures don’t do the super crisp and vibrant print justice but it is SO clean with such good resolution the whole image really pops and the board looks amazing.
Here’s a link to this OG skateboard design if you’d like to try to customize it, change it (edit the text to your own or whatever), add to it, or just buy this sweet deck as is – WHATEVER!
