Core 77 + Nidecker Snowboard Design Competition


Everyone who knows me knows I’m always looking for an excuse to talk about snowboarding, yes, even in June. Designers, artists, crafters, makers: here’s a competition after my own heart. Core 77 design mag and Nidecker snowboard company are challenging designers to create the next generation of snowboard graphics. Designers can submit designs of any style or content, and participants have the entire topsheet of the board as their canvas. The top 5 designs will be applied to Nidecker snowboards and displayed at international tradeshow, along with profiles of the winning designers. The grand prize winner will receive a $2500 cash award, and their design will be included in the 2010/11 Nidecker line. The 4 runners up will each be produced in a limited edition run. All top 5 finalists will receive a Nidecker snowboard produced with their design, and the designer’s name will be featured on the side of their board.

I'm a word nerd who loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon. I was an editor on the first 40 volumes of MAKE, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. In particular, covering art is my passion — after all, art is the first thing most of us ever made. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for untouched powder fields and ideal alpine lakes.
