Real is like the pretty/ugly in certain lighting girlfriend from Seinfeld when it comes to graphics.

I personally love the new Alltimers decks. Having a minimalistic design is not an inherently bad thing. Additionally Alltimers is kinda known for having funny kitsch graphics. These ones work really well imo.

Plus I'm like 99% sure the minimalism is a reference to a lot of the Ron Allen-drawn H-Street graphics, like the Danny Way Train graphic.

Much love & respect to Wrong Alien, but he definitely did NOT draw any of those graphics.
I think you’re correct about the homage aspect, though.
That was a cheeky little thing for a minute.
I kinda appreciate what they’re doing with those Alltimers decks, actually.

Seriously I thought this board graphic was a joke you posted. The last Thank You drop really looks like a bad Pizza rip-off.

Get em out, purge the filth, what are the worst graphics ever to grace a board that aren't even worthy of being worn off?  Here's a good start.

everybody seems to love this stuff. It’s boring and sterile to me

Disagree. Pendelton's a rad artist. I think his style is quite appealing. I prefer his artwork over skulls, monsters, gore, zombies, most bold team logos like girl or creature.

I hate the thrasher skate goat.   Don’t get why it’s an enduring logo or something people want tattooed on them, but then again, wannabe satanist stuff has never been my bag

anything to do with $atan is so boring and played out. it doesn't look badass. i know, unpopular opinion.

Nobody is ever going to top the natas 101 satan board so everything else looks kinda tame in comparison.

LOL yes i love REAL (see my "setup thread" the whole 2020 i only skated Reals) and yes some graphics are very cartoonish but they also make sooo many nice boards.. ya'll just nitpicking while ignoring the dope things they make
[close]

That's how I see it, too.
If we are looking at roughly 20-ish years of Real and their graphics, they have had some absolute amazing ones: Huf (delivery one/UPS knock off), the early Thiebaud ones, and the Oval logo is one of the most consistent and inoffensive team boards (even Deathwish's Gang font gets a little mundane after awhile), plus they have done many spin-offs with that logo. See the watermelon one posted above. I regret not buying it, actually. Green is my favorite color, too.

Back on track, everyone has their opinion on graphics and I support whatever that it is. I just wanted to bring up that Real gets a lot of flack for being "meh" in graphics, when a majority of the graphics have not been that offensive. Even the Low Pro series posted above aren't bad. To me, those look pretty good and I don't think they're too busy or too Adobe, either. Again, there's preference and subjectivity to it all. Possibly, some of my original thought could have been posted in the Unpopular Opinion thread haha! Apologies for the slight derailment, but also, good on those who shared the less than desirable graphics from Real in here!

Also, I don't recall many other graphics from the 2010's being great/memorable.
The '80s were the worst period. You had these horrible pop bands growing their hair and calling themselves metal.

I've skated since 98 and never once seen a Real graphic that was at all memorable. Sure, they don't directly embarrass themself like some examples in this thread, but I'm pretty sure they could put out nothing but the OG logo and it would be an improvement. At least then you've got a identity

They're so boring and uninspired

Real has lots of mediocre stuff but some fine gems amongst them. Above my current Ishod and below my next Ishod that is going on in a few weeks. I absolutely love both graphics.

Those Bryte Graphics aren't that bad and you guys are reaching. Sure it's not polar, but they're really just average.

Real use to put out like 20 new graphics a season and half of them were bad. Now they do smaller releases with more carry over. Less bad graphics
I dont think they look that bad, but using that many colors/layers in your standard logo cannot be a good business decision. Although there are probably enough kids buying them that hurting the margins like that doesnt matter.

A lot of these decks are objectively bad, but in another life it's possible I would hang that Chima deck (my gf and I love penguins)
I've had a better understanding of what is happening around me while smoking Salvia as a passenger in a moving vehicle than reading your post

I like how REAL adds SKATEBOARDS... as if there was any question. they should drop the skateboards and make the REAL wording bigger, maybe use a second color... i dunno. 
I'd hang the penguin graphic on the wall. I like Chima and would skate one of his boards but the penguin graphic seems like more of a wall hanger.
but that's just like my opinion man.

I definitely like real and ride the DLX train, I can say I haven't seen a memorable real graphic besides that standard logo the throughout the years I have been skating

I can't say I have seen particularly atrocious graphics from them either
