Usually skaters are creative people but their style is strongly influenced by the main brands like Etnies, DC, Globe and so on. My task is to project some products for skaters that let them to express their own style in some original and simple ways (for eg. with a drawing or showing their bruises). I have called this work skatebooth because I want to give the idea of something original that you can buy at a low price in a place frequented by skaters, like open spaces or rock events. You can also make these things by yourself.

No roll wheels 4 wheels that in reality are 4 big octagon screws. If you are not yet a skater and you want to learn to stay on the board, use these wheels: the skateboard will keep still and you don’t fall down.
Skate menu It is a deck where all the ways to use your skateboard are indicated. There are simple and short sentences that explain the deck’s functions. For eg. “go forward” is wrote on the deck’s nose, “brake” is wrote on the deck’s tail.
Bruise’s safeshow You know, skaters are proud to have a lot of bruises. In fact they call them their own natural tattoos. But sometimes you’d better wearing some protections. How can you show your fantastic bruises with them? Bruise’s safeshow is the answer! It is a set of protections with a lot of bruises printed on them.
