Five Students Get To Make It Girl

This fall, Adobe and Girl Skateboards partnered up to offer students the opportunity to help create their next line of skateboards. And we were overwhelmed by the responses that flooded into Behance!

There were so many wonderful entries; we couldn’t narrow it down to just the four students we originally said we’d pick. Instead, we chose five talented students to come together and create something amazing.

Please join us in congratulating Scott Biersack of Arizona State University, Caleb Morris of Savannah College of Art and Design, Mitch Viney from the University of Technology in Sydney, Emma Campbell of Auckland University of Technology, and last but not least, Cody Bass from the University of Southern Mississippi.

They’ll be working with Girl’s studio team in LA, designing a signature board for the collection and all the marketing materials to make it big – all powered by Creative Cloud.

Stay tuned to see the final product coming soon! #madethis
