Pay it forward - WaWa wooden surfboards







So our neighbour Andrew shapes wooden surfboards, they're beautifully handcrafted with the utmost attention to detail. He makes a whole range - namely the Alaia, Paipo (Belly Board), Hollow Board and the Handgun. WaWa is another one of those brands that we totally believe in, anyone passionate about the environment will agree.

When he approached us to have a look at the logo ideas they had come up with, we kindly obliged as any good graphic designing neighbour would. A few beer meetings and a late night design session later, the birth of the logo had finally arrived. It's simple, iconic and easy to brand the boards with. Note the texture on the logo, unlike some we always choose to go for the handmade approach - the texture was created from designing, then printing several logo's out and using sandpaper until we had achieved the desired effect.

Now back to the title of the post… happily looking at the logo gratis has allowed us the opportunity to further work with Andrew and his brilliantly minded business partner Cobus. We'll be designing the swing tags with product description info for the various product range as well as a collectable poster in the very near future.

And a very big plus is that they will be at the Blue Bird Garage market this Friday/tomorrow in Muizenberg. They'll have a good selection of their boards on display and ready to take your custom orders. Be sure to swing by, you won't be disappointed!
