Victor asked me to make a design for the very first Uncover Lab skateboard. Excited as I was, I immediately accepted this great quest. 'Maybe something with an inspiring quote,' he said. 'It does not need to relate to the object itself, lets make art.' After some research I decided to go with 'Imagination will take you everywhere'. I love the link with a skateboard actually taking you places as you ride it, but grasps a much broader aspect of traveling as well. Talent and hard work will do the job, but first you will have to use your imagination to know where you will be heading. Remember to dream big.
Oh and want to take a challenge and go on another quest with me? I would be happy to help you with your personal design.
