PostSubject: KURST Fingerboards   Sat Apr 09, 2016 7:55 pm

Hey everyone! We've been fingerboarding since tech decks first came out and have been supporting other fingerboard companies as we could. From doing so we learned what we liked, disliked, wanted to see, and hoped to improve.
After years of fingerboarding on and off, we finally decided to try to go into the game as our own company to hopefully meet the demand of what we wanted, and that some of you might share. All while promoting our artwork, which was our main goal.

We have been around for about 3 months now and have had some success and lots of attention to our graphics.
We would love to hear what you guys think about us!
Look us up on instagram @Kurstfingerboards and give us a follow, help us get our name out there and mainly, give us feed back!

I don't usually reply to threads w/out pictures but you should post some up since not everyone on here is active on Instagram!

Your company looks pretty alright! I feel like you should work on a couple of things before you actually do release your company and products;

-The Logo and Font - It reminds me of some 16 year old punk rock kid that paints his nails and listens to Panic at the Disco 24/7. You should try a more legitimate font and don't use logos you find on the internet.

-The shape of the deck - The shape is gnarly, the kicks look massive and the concave looks huge in comparison to a U. Try to make a better mold if you don't have the resourced to do so, there's plenty of companies who produce Metal/Aluminum Molds and/or Other alternatives to different molds made out of different materials as well.

-The graphics, what program do you use to make them? Like I mentioned in the Logo and Font section, it looks and makes me feel like it's referencing to screamo/punk rock music lol. The way the graphics look applied, doesn't look that great either. I get see it's not that great applied onto the deck.


With that being said, this is just constructive criticism so take it or leave it, it's your company. Also, give more information about your company and release some products after revising your company as well, you shouldn't jump right into sponsoring people either.

-Holden.

We're here to be criticized! we want to know what you guys think of us and to see what we can improve!

I see what you're saying about our logo and fonts haha. The logo was a drawing i used to do all the time. The we just did it on photoshop and it was made the face of kurst. As for the font, yeah, they're just preset stuff we have on our computers but its what we like, and what we want as of now.

The shape of the deck - As we said in our first post, we ended up on this. Some of the Boards were too flat for us and we wanted more of a concave in our decks, as for kicks, the people who have bought product or have been given one say they love it and has tons of pop.
We CNCed an acrylic mold with this specific shape to it because it was what we wanted. Were working on another one because we have been told alot that the concave "looks crazy" and takes getting used to.

logos- They're all original drawings (minus the satan graphic) that are scanned and edited on photoshop or gimp2, mirrored, transferred onto the deck, then hand painted with a clear coat finish. Everyone at kurst has a punk background and we wanted it to reflect onto our boards. We all love demonic artwork and know were not the only ones out there. We don't paint our nails, or listen to panic at the disco or hate the world, we just are into different stuff than others. We also are aware that what we like isn't for everyone, so we're creating different style artwork aside from what we already have.
As for application, were still new to this, so we're all trial and error right now. If anyone knows of a better way, we'd love the help!

Again though, were here to hear what everyone has to say about us whether it be good or bad, and well give a little insight to things.

Seen you on Instagram a few times. Love your graphics, man!

Definitely try to perfect the shape you're after. The concave could use some work. Other than that, keep it up, dude!

Thanks man! We're working on a mold with a not so deep concave since some people aren't so used to it.
