September 25, 2013
THE BRIEF

Signal Snowboard stands out from their competitors thanks to their epitomous hip, edgy and creative snowboards combined with their mission to build a community with a much bigger cause. Through programs like Every Third Thursday, Signal have proven that they can reach a huge audience by connecting with customers one-on-one. To mark the Signal Snowboard Design Challenge, Signal are inviting designers to design the artwork for a snowboard.

Taking inspiration from Every Third Thursday where previous 'out-of-the-box' snowboards created have been an Italian glass snowboard, 3D printed snowboard, or even building a bass guitar into a snowboard, designers should incorporate their ideas and creativity into the provided template, whilst following the Guidelines. One winner will have the incredible chance to have their artwork produced and featured as part of the 2014/15 season snowboard in the Signal Snowboard line.
