Design Challenge: Skateboard Deck
In February 2019, Adobe partnered with skateboarding legend Tony Hawk on a challenge: to design a skateboard deck. The global creative community rose to the challenge in a big way, with so many top-notch entries that it pained us to choose only five winners. Here's the final selection:
Grand prize: Dustin Knotek. Dustin's design will appear in in Tony's new game, Skate Jam (available on iOS and Android), and he'll receive a 13-inch MacBook Pro, one-year subscription to the Creative Cloud, and a skateboard.
