Senior Thesis—Skateboard Graphics Focusing on Femininity / 2019
It’s no secret that skateboarding has always been a boy’s club, but the popularity and demographic of female skateboarders is on the rise. Now that females are gaining more interest from major skate brands, gaining sponsorship, and being recognized for their talent, it’s time for females to gain more positions within other areas in the industry as well. While there are female artists who occasionally make skateboard graphics, most of the time they are brought on as guest artists. In creating a line of decks, I hope to break the norm and have more females creating graphics and products within the industry full time.
