Liebe Macht Frei

Skateboard Construction + Screen Print

To celebrate the marraige of two of my best friends I set out to create individual gifts that shared the connection of love. The phrase Liebe Macht Frei is a hopeful twist on the World War II phrase translating in English to 'love makes you free'. Having skateboarded with the groom a lot growing up I thought it was only appropriate to relate the gift back to the beginning of our friendship. Using Rhino 3D, 123D Make, and a Universal Laser I created a press for the wood veneers to shape the contour of the board. The graphic was created from a drawing I processed through the Great Scott App by Reza Ali. Shout out to Katrina Herman for helping me burn the screen.
