Skateboarding and snowboarding have many things in common as well as many differences. The two communities don’t necessarily always go along. Snowboarding has been accepted as a professional sport for many years now, but skateboarding, in a rebellious sense, has always been regarded as a lifestyle rather than a sport, mainly because of the “good old days” in the 90s, when it wasn’t such a technical hobby as it is now. This design represents Olivia’s own personal perspective on sport, utility and clubbing, bringing together her upbringing in both these realms, and making references to her own rebellious nature which doesn’t conform to one single “box” but incorporates many facets into her personality and current perspectives.
