About the project

The Skateroom is a social entrepreneurship whose main purpose is to help empower youth using art and skateboarding. They collaborate with contemporary artists to create editions of artwork on the medium of skateboards. Artists The Skateroom has collaborated with include Ai Weiwei, the Andy Warhol Foundation, Nobuyoshi Araki and Paul McCarthy.

Our goal was to create an online store where emphasise was put on the story behind each product and collaboration. The storytelling was a key aspect for the information architecture and overall design of the website.
