Being makers of things we spend a lot of time being influenced by stuff that we like. And we like a lot of stuff. Thus is born, “Stuff WKStudio Likes”.
We just got the book Current State: Snowboarding for our library which contains 23 individual interviews and images of snowboarding´s past three decades. It’s a whopping 450 pages thick and made up from two interconnected books. It has a fancy slip-cover too.
There are interviews with: Jake Burton, Terje Haakonsen, Richard Woolcott, Shaun Palmer, Travis Rice, JP Walker, Jed Anderson, Mikey Basich, Nicolas Müller, Danny Davis, Jesse Burtner, Marc Frank Montoya, Drew Stevenson, Jeremy Jones, Ken Block, Whitey McConnaughy, Peter Line, Pat Bridges, Blue Montgomery, Scotty Wittlake, and Wolle Nyvelt.
What’s cool is that it’s written, edited and designed by a pro snowboarder David Benedek. He’s a self-taught designer who pretty much put the entire book together from start to finish. After previewing the finished book (debossing, spot colors, weird folding and other bells and whistles) you got to love a guy who does all his own electronic production work.
He also put together a little video showing the process of putting together Current State: Snowboarding.
The book is sold here. We found out that it is only being released in a very limited edition and is not available to dealers or wholesale so step up and buy the book. If you’re a fan of graphic design and snowboarding this is for you.
Otherwise check out some of our stuff and maybe it’ll inspire you. You got to pass that Goodness around.
