Urban Design Series


Let us introduce The Urban Design Series, the project where you can become our next designer on our skateboards. All you have to do is submit your design and cross your fingers.

Most of us have dreamt of designing our own board. Problem is that it’s pretty expensive and you often need to make a LOT of boards. That’s why we created the Urban Design Series.

We wanted to find talented designers and artists out there. The best graphics will be selected and we (Heartwood Skateboards) will make the boards with your design and name on it. The boards will be launched under the Heartwood flag. You will be fully credited as the designer and also provided with the first three decks we manufacture! If you want you have the option to provide us with a design story if you want to explain your ideas and emotions behind the art.

So what do you say, are you ready to start designing?

The Winner

  • You will be fully credited as designer with your name on the boards and on our site.
  • You will get the 2 first boards we manufacture.
  • Add your designstory to your graphic.
  • Apart from the above we will provide you with other goodies and such.


  • Make sure you have fully rights to your design. It’s not ok to copy others or use copyrighted material. 
  • You may submit more than one design. If there is just color correction and small differences save it as additional layers in your design. 
  • Heartwood Skateboards reserves the right to make smaller adjustments in the graphics, like placement of our logo and color corrections in the graphics. 
  • The width of the board are determined by Heartwood Skateboards.

Once you’re done you need to make a zipfile. This file should contain the follow:

  • Illustrator file containing your design (be sure to create outlines if you are using text objects with any other font).
  • Text file after you’ve filled it in completely.Optional files
