Ladrones de la Nieve
Snowboarding is a fairly young sport. It has only been less than two decades since snowboarding has been initiated into the Olympics. As a growing world sport and a fellow rider, I noticed the lack of snowboard art influenced by Latino culture. Therefore, I took the opportunity to develop a snowboard theme that contains cultural signifiers connected to Latino culture.

The identity development of the logo emblem and illustrations were created from still life drawings. As an experienced snowboarder, it was vital to assure the material had durability, utility, elasticity, mobility, and weather proof. Packaging was developed with English and Spanish language. Packaging material came from recycled ink and papers. The dual language also inspired the development of a responsive logo emblem and reversible fabric material. All items are custom packaged and designed with vivid forms of imagery showcasing illustration, photography, and a design narrative. Included in the book is small story vignette.
