Mekanism Skateboards

Posted on February 23, 2006 Under Design

The Glade just introduced a few new skateboards by Mekanism, the brand responsible for some fairly impressive skateboard to artist collaborations. This deck is designed by London-based design duo Warren Du Preez and Nick Thorton Jones. They describe this is as “a black and white mutating disruptive pattern creating an optical illusion of depth and three-dimensionality.” They also have an older design I love by John Madea, a digital animator and professor at MIT’s Media Lab.
