I think Real has the most consistently awful graphics, which is a shame because DLX rules, their team is insane, and they used to have amazing art direction.
Basically any company that constantly runs logo boards is bland as fuck: Real, Element, Plan B, Flip, NHS companies, Primitive, etc.

Revive shouldn't even be acknowledged as a real company ::)


In an old thread, about this same topic, I pointed out a real catalog with something like 20+ new graphics for a season. That's a lot of work. I think real probably puts out more original graphics than any other brand. They can't all be gems, but for each run they do have a fair amount of decent graphics.

It's definitely a ton of work, and they have a huge team, but quality over quantity is key. For every nice series they have, there are four really bland or just straight up bad ones.

I wouldn't really say they do to many graphics for DLX I looked at the products they made for board brands and Antihero and real each only had one series done by them.

Tracer, thanks for the Rollerbladers opinion.

Anyway, the right answer is that godawful Pizza Skateboards. That's one of the most thoroughly shitty companies EVER.

Creature has some of the best graphics, you guys are fucking high. Always rad artists series, every catalog. Logo boards are usually dumb but that's every company.

Is J Strickland doing art at Life Extension?
Actually, I think it's the old Pogs graphic design team.
For real. Yin yang skulls and 8-balls. LE is atrocious.

Jake Duncombe said people send in drawings and ideas for LE graphics and if they like it they use it and hook kids up with a bunch of decks, pretty sick though, I wouldn't care if people made money off my art, but having ur own graphic for a series would be tight as fuck.

This shit is cool maybe if you're 12. Actually I don't think I would have liked it even back when I was 12.

With Creature, I think it really depends on the pro/shape. For instance, I've never seen a Navarrette board I didn't like. Kimbel, Hitz (especially the SHED and LARB decks) are usually pretty sick. Usually not that into the Ryan Reyes and Gravette graphics, but I skate big decks anyway, so it don't matter. I really liked the Venom Stitches series that came out last year and those silver Funeral French decks were bitchin. Still prolly one of my favorite companies, but I can get why some people don't like it.

I bought a Roger deck in high school and I remember it came with a little piece of paper that you could draw on and mail in for either a chance to be featured on the website or maybe even a graphic (don't remember). Thought it was a cool idea.

Roger was dope. Ghost with a Boner was a classic.

I dunno if the worst, but Creature graphics are pretty damn bad. I'd like to support them but the graphics are just too damn lame and tacky for me.
Creature graphics have gone down the shitter but they used to be dope back when all there boards were dipped in Green

I like skate mental decks but the graphics have this consolidated knock off feel, cause of how consolidated was the bully company

I like the basic logo graphics, but true on a lot of these brands. Idk what happened. 7-10 years ago graphics were awesome on any brand and all of a sudden everyone's out of ideas and lacking appeal so hard. I especially hate all the weed graphics or naked girl stuff, it's like okay it worked once for one company don't over do it like a one hit wonder joke
yes

Revive appears to have started ripping off AWS/Habitat from 10-15 years ago so they're slowly plagiarizing their way to better graphics.


15 years behind the times is standard trend delay for Christian Rock/Country.

Zero and Creature hands down. Zero had cool graphics like 15+ years ago though.

Do half naked chicks move product? I buy hookups, but it's more of a anime thing, rather than a nudity thing. I wish that Henry Jones collection was with a team I cared about. but as long as Wes Kremer is sk8mafia4life I hope they are successful forever!

nobody's said DGK yet, although I could see myself riding one of their regular logo boards, but these are all typical offenders.

Man, how many times does this have to come up? If you're just thinking about the REAL logo boards then you've never really looked into the brand.

They make tons of great graphics as one offs.

The jpegs lukring behind these links say otherwise:

http://www.realskateboards.com/spring-16-catalog/
http://www.realskateboards.com/summer-16-catalog/
http://www.realskateboards.com/fall-16-catalog/

A few one offs and the Spectrum series looks fine, but it's not mind blowing.
They put out a LOT of chud.

Pizza skateboards started off awesome, but I was rapping with someone the other day and we both agreed that the graphics are getting stale in that knock-off type of way. Its rad to do it every now and then, but every deck that comes out is just a parody. S/O connor. The shapes are good though....and PS stix wood. Would bang 6/10.

You're right. These are much better!






I have to say that I did like the Al Partanen vomitose board:

And this throwback graphic is alright too:


But generally Creature graphics are fucking terrible and I haven't seen any of the more tolerable ones around here, so I haven't bought a Creature board even though I like their team and vibe.
