About

COLORBOX

Colorbox exceeds isolated brands. Colorbox is a social brand. A brand made by skateboarders and designers themselves. You can share your designs online and get them funded. If your design gets 100% funding we're able to get them printed and ready to ship them to the funders. Every month we pick designs from the website to sell in our webshop and other skateshops. If this is your design, you get rewarded for it. This can be payment, coupons on our website or free boards...

THE CONCEPT

We are Simon & Guillaume. Two designers/skateboarders from Ghent who want to do something new. 

The world of skateboarding is a very creative one, one that's hard to access if you're not a skateboarder. Boards and graphics go hand in hand since the very beginning. It's a medium that has been used not only by skateboarding artists but by artists and creatives in general. 

Skatebrands always have been creative and refreshing, mostly designs made by skateboarders themselves. However, every brand got its designer, illustrator or photographer so it's hard for non-skateboarders and even skateboarders themselves to make graphics or design for a brand.

With Colorbox we want to give these creatives the opportunity to do something with their designs. A lot of people dream about designing a board that would really get sold or printed at a bigger scale. If you are a creative mind, an illustrator, graphic designer, painter, photographer or else this is a real chance to get recognition for your creations. 

Apart from that, there is no pressure to post, like or fund designs at all. You can do what you like, there are no deadlines, rules or things you have to do. You only have to download the templates to integrate your designs on a board. It's no competition, it's up to you. Once we get our website up and running we do want to organise short-termed actions. For example: A shop wants a board with a cool design with their name on. For one month you can participate and add your design. Tag your design with the name of the action and at the end of the month we choose a winner. 

The Colorbox platform creates a new community, one that doesn't exist already. It can gather all these skateboarding creatives, a new source of inspiration for skateboarding. 

REWARDS

We already did a lot of designing ourselves. You can get stickers and shirts with our Colorbox logo. Illustrator "Baksteen B" or "Bricky B" did a polo design for our first board as well. All of this you can get as a reward for your backing.

WHAT ARE WE DOING RIGHT NOW?

Since we are designers we don't really have a mind for programming. We have been talking to developers to discuss our project and calculate the costs and time to realize "Colorbox". This is why we need your help. With a short animation we can show you our basic ideas for the website:

Risks and challenges

Since this is the first time we are doing a project as big as this one, we are expecting some challenges in the future. As for the risks we are already planning what to do next.

If our project gets funded we can start cooperating with external developers to realize the website. We've already lined up some other designers to make fresh graphics for the brand so we can get our name out there. Skateboarding is a passion, same as other creative activities. We're both hard working and dedicated to realize this project an above all do something new.
