Dan Broad is a veteran skater and graphic designer from London and over the last five years he’s been researching, collecting and re-drawing hundreds of skateboard company logos from the 70s to the mid 90s. From this work, he’s designed and screen printed a series of three limited edition prints and he’s released them under his company Backpull.
There have been many amount of skateboard brands over the last 40 or so years, some large and well known, others smaller, more underground or short lived. These awesome prints don’t champion any one single company, but they commemorate as many as possible within each era. This is by no means a complete history, but more of a collection of some of Dan’s (and our) favorite logos from the 70s, 80s and mid 90s all designed within a shaped deck from each respective era.
A percentage of all Backpull profits from the sale of the prints will go to skateboard causes in the UK, such as helping fund the resurfacing of a local ramp or donating to skate related charities. Basically, whoever could do with a helping hand and is doing something positive so that people can enjoy and benefit from skateboarding.
