Concept

Retro-futuristic skateboard lifestyle brand.

Background

I’ve loved the word saturnine ever since I first encountered it during a 9th grade vocabulary lesson. Representing a dark moodiness influenced by the celestial body, the adjective immediately elicited in my mind an image of the number nine with the rings of Saturn surrounding it. I jotted down the design and never forgot it.

Naturally, the first application for the futuristic design was a ringer shirt. Next, I wanted to experiment with the shirts themselves and placed the design on a series of short-sleeved raglans with colored sleeves and matching collars to provide a nice contrast with the silver or glow-in-the-dark logos.
