Stalefish: Skateboard Culture from the Rejects Who Made It

Client: Chronicle Books

A compilation of tales from skateboarding legends like Tommy Guerrero, Bob Burnquist, Stacy Peralta, and Lance Mountain. Unlike most books in this category, Stalefish is text-heavy and meant to be read—part memoir, part sports history and part call to action. The design is assertive and modern, incorporating an angular custom typeface based on a classic 1980's Tony Hawk skateboard deck.
