Working With Grasshopper Skateboards
I hope this finds you well, and you have been able to make the most of your summer so far. Oh, before you read on, here's a track I was listening to while editing the site & images. Hit play & scroll on.
Recently I put together a new eCommerce website for local startup Grasshopper Skateboards. Grasshopper Skateboards design high-end sustainable skateboards, from Mini Cruisers to Drop Deck Longboards. It's been a real joy to work with the crew there. When first I met with them, I spent a lot of time talking about the site and finding out what their needs were. I spent a few hours at the workshop where the depth of the work involved became clear. This involved everything from researching materials to developing alternative resins for increased sustainability. Additionally, extensive research was undertaken to determine the best quality components for each deck. Every step involved many hours of intense research and testing. The results of which speak for themselves.
Barry (Founder) & company have created a range of boards for all disciplines. Each board is carefully thought out and designed with the environment and the best ride in mind. Getting to share their story has been an education and a hugely enjoyable process.
Here are some screenshots of the website I made, and some shots I took in the workshop. Watch this space for more content with Grasshopper Skateboards.
