I decided to enter the snowboard design contest for a free pass (and more) to Web Directions North 2008.

Now… I am not a visual designer. I have great ideas, but I just don’t know the tools well enough to make those ideas take good form. At the same time, I often wonder what some snowboard designers are thinking…

I saw a white board with a light blue design recently and wondered, "How would you find that in the snow?" And that is the inspiration for my design.

It stands out in the snow. Plus, when you are caught in that avalanche, your board will work for you; the red draws the eye and there’s a helpful message for the Search and Rescue team.

Good design is function with purpose. What says that more than "Send help?"
