We’ve known Evan since he was a little tyke so we were excited to help him create his latest skateboard design.
The graphic was created using markers and colored pencils before being scanned so that the colors and contrast could be enhanced in Photoshop. “The experience designing the board was a great one.” Evan told us when working with the BoardPusher.com art director. “It went really smoothly from paper to deck and, with a few tweaks in Photoshop, we were really able to make the graphic pop off the white background.”
Since Evan is goofy footed, he wanted the graphic running down the deck and flipped the BoardPusher logo opposite the fish for an added dynamic to the design. As for the significance of the fish, “The fish is something I’ve always sketched as a doodle and never really thought anything would come of it. Since my middle name is Fischer I thought it would be a decent play on words.”
Evan also added “LD” to go under the trucks on his graphic. “The LD is something that I’ve always done. It stands for ‘Lock Down’. When I was competing a lot back in the day I would only go with tricks I had on lock down, hence the LD.” Evan added the LD using the font generator on the BoardPusher.com skateboard designer after uploading his finished graphic. You can check out that process in the quick video below.

We have added a new all purpose longboard wheel to BoardPusher.com. These center set wheels are soft enough to grip the concrete and still ride over any pesky bumps in the road. The square inner edge helps push through turns and maintain control. Best of all, they are now part of the basic components package when making your custom longboard a complete. You can also add them to your favorite cruiser shape or popsicle complete for a faster ride.
