Nate Harris + Spectrum Skateboards

posted by Marcroy November 20, 2017

Nate Harris is a graphic artist with a focus on bold, colorful & often character driven work. He divides his time between woodworking, printmaking, and illustration, approaching each project with a unique combination of disciplines. Nate is currently a member of the art collective Space 1026 in Philadelphia. He has collaborated and created visual solutions for the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Target, Warby Parker, Adobe, among others.

An artist series graphic for Philadelphia’s Spectrum Skateboard Co. created by cutting up old skateboards, composing the pieces and printing them using a relief press. Built like a puzzle, components of the block are inked separately and composed, thus requiring one pass through the press. This experimental process is a continuation of personal projects focusing on the modernization of the woodcut relief printing method. The process was documented for the release, and a limited edition of 50 skateboards were produced.
