Represent our class
The project that you can see above is a representation of our class.
We think, see, smell, talk and feel.
We are a group of people that creates one unique thing.
During the first lesson's week I had also took 10 photos of my classmates that shows some common things. You can see them below in the photo's section.

My tables' project

Usually skaters are creative people but their style is strongly influenced by the main brands like Etnies, DC, Globe and so on.
My task is to project some products for skaters that let them to express their own style in some original and simple ways (for eg. with a drawing or showing their bruises).
I have called this work skatebooth because I want to give the idea of something original that you can buy at a low price in a place frequented by skaters, like open spaces or rock events. You can also make these things by yourself.
T-board - design-cancel-redesign the graphic of your T-shirt thanks to the plastic deck sticked on it. The top of the deck is on the shirt's front, the underneath of the deck is on its back.
Stick Skate Shirt - a piece of transfer print paper where there are some pictures. Cut the pictures and create your own composition. Then iron your graphic on a white T-shirt to personalize it.
Maskshirt - take a white T-shirt, some drawing pens for cloth and a piece of paper. Create some masks and some shapes. Tear out the shapes and use them too like some masks. Create your own composition and draw it on the white T-shirt with the drawing pens for cloth using the masks.
T-repair - this is a T-shirt with a lot of pockets where there is the equipment to repair your skateboard. You can easily find them because of the graphic of the shirt. There is a skateboard's shape. All the pockets are placed on the right skateboard's part with the right tool to repair it.
Skate menu - this is a deck where all the ways to use your skateboard are indicated. There are simple and short sentences that explain the deck's functions. For eg. "go forward" is wrote on the deck's nose, "brake" is wrote on the deck's tail.
Bruise's safeshow - You know, skaters are proud to have a lot of bruises. In fact they call them their own natural tattoos. But sometimes you'd better wearing some protections. How can you show your fantastic bruises with them? Bruise's safeshow is the answer: they are protections with a lot of bruises printed on them.

I have designed 10 T-shirt that children and teenagers can wear without worry about get dirty. In fact, thanks to the dirty texture all the stains are camouflaged. You can see the DIRT-SHIRTS below in photo's section.
