Element Skateboards have collaborated with Patrick Schmidt for ‘The Guardians’ board series.
London based illustrator Patrick Schmidt has already worked with the likes of Topman, Le Coq Sportif, French Connection and more. His latest collaboration is with Element Skateboards.
The brand’s new movement “stands for an inclusive and positive global movement motivating individuals to discover, find and learn new things in life through the avenues of skateboarding, art, music, contemporary subcultures and the outdoors.”
Patrick created “The Guardians” collection, for which he interpreted the Element riders’ individual spirit animals. For Nick Garcia there’s a coyote, Brandon Westgate has a bobcat and Julian Davidson has a snake.
All the pieces are given a unique decoration, inspired by traditional woven Tibetan Tiger rugs.
Find out more about the collaboration over on their website.
