Scheske Graphic

In 1991, the computer game SkiFree was released by Microsoft along with the operating system Windows 3.0a. It was a very simple game that was fun to play and managed to keep me and my friends entertained at night waiting for the next ski day to come along. The simple mechanics of the game, the field of open objects dotted across an expanse of white, and the hope that your run might never end; they all captured the essence of skiing in the most basic way. I wanted to create a graphic that could create some of that magic.

Clement Graphic

We first discovered #bcartist, Sarah Clement, during a routine hunt for artists on Instagram. Immediately fascinated by the objects she had created, and the style applied to them, we saw common ground in a rooted passion for the outdoors and adventure. Objects like a lantern, a compass, match sticks, maple leaves and other things you might see while out for a walk (or a ski) in Canada.

Pell Owl Graphic

The winning idea came to light when Sandy was laying down in bed following a brainstorm session. She switched on the light, ran into the studio, and began to sketch out a full body-height owl graphic that stretched over the size of the two skis. Skiers will clip their ski boots into the Owls’ sharp claws and carve through the fresh powder on the mountains.Pellvetica

Keefer Lake Catskiing Custom Graphic

Keefer Lake Catskiing is a homegrown BC operation, located in the Central Monashees, just east of the Okanagan Valley. Keefer inquired about a fleet of Skevik Skis for this season and were also interested in adorning them with a custom graphic. To keep that local vibe going, it was only natural to bring in Vernon dweller and regular Skevik artistic contributor, Andy Stein, to bring the design to life. Andy has been responsible for some of our most popular graphics over the past few years, so when we hooked him up with Keefer owner/operator, Jeff Gostlin, we were confident that something great would emerge.

Lacheur's Backcountry Dreaming

This time we worked closer together on the idea and image striving to create something that depicted the ‘perfect ski day’. . . . I took at lot of direction from the guys at Skevik to let me know what exactly the perfect ski day looked like. Powder and pillows in the backcountry were key plus capturing the mountain to water feel that we are so lucky to have here in beautiful BC!April Lacheur

April Lacheur has launched a brand new website, YapesPaints.com, along with a recent blog on her most recent graphic for Skevik Skis. You can also find all of April's collaborations with Skevik Skis.

Vancouver Sun

The small, local manufacturer also differentiates itself from the giants with a brand focused on its Canadian roots, and with top sheet design personalization options. Now, with seven different models that are each created to withstand and perform in varying terrain and snow conditions — from groomers to powder and all-mountain to park — the Andersons are celebrating their decade of ski building.Vancouver Sun

Dumontet Heritage Graphic

Skevik Skis is named after our Great Grandfather, Anton Skevik, from Norway and we wanted to honour him through one of our graphics. We had some old photos to work with but weren’t exactly sure how to combine things into a coherent, meaningful and aesthetic design for a topsheet. After seeing the artwork of Okanagan based Liz Dumontet at UBCO showing in the Vernon Public Art Gallery, we felt quite strongly that she could be the one to make our ideas come to life.
