Today we have some custom griptape added to our Featured Deck. Both were designed by Dave Benedict of for his son. “I was commissioned to do a logo for a band that was looking for a name change. Fire Lake was the name they came up with, so I made the logo first and then was inspired to make a poster for them. Unfortunately the name was turfed and they decided to stick with their original name. I was a little bummed that my design didn’t get used so when my 12 year old son decided to take up skateboarding and I decided to relive my youth through him, I wanted to have a board that was one of my designs. This was the one he picked out of about 7 other designs I had mocked up.” Good choice. You can follow Dave on Instagram @davecbenedict or his design firm @square_egg.
