PJ Ladd

In case you didn't know already. PJ Ladd is repping DC shoes now. And in case you also didn't know; he's got a big ol contest going on over at The Berrics.

We have the PJ S LX which is one of the most technical skate shoes I have ever seen...And I've seen a lot of skate shoes. Come grab a pair while we still have them.

Go check out the serious website DC has for PJ Here:


Contest Spectacular

Remember last year when we did a limited Proskates/Monark Skateboards deck?? Yeah we did, they were awesome, but they gone now. We need more...the only problem is that we don't have a clue what to do with the graphic. This is where you come in. I have posted a link to download a .zip file with all the necessary logos and the template to design the deck.

You MUST COMPLETE THIS ASSIGNMENT USING ADOBE ILLUSTRATOR...no Photoshop. No rules as to what must be on the graphic, only that if it sucks its not going to win.

Prizes you ask? How about some of the decks that you designed and some other Pro and Monark goods.

Deadline? Ahhhh lets say May 1st, You have 1 month.

May the most creative person win.

Here are the logos

You can email us a .JPEG for a preview, but your final entry has to be an Illustrator file.

email: proskates@gmail.com

Good Luck!
