By Design: Behind the 2018 Rome Mountain Division’s Graphics
Like the name implies, the Rome Mountain Division is for the rider looking to conquer everything from fast groomers to tight trees and deep steeps. But there is more to The Mountain Division then its sleek build. Illustrator Dylan Goldberger crafted the graphic from woodblock prints, a process in which the skill and technical ability needed to create the finished product is second to none. The end result is an all-mountain ride that doubles as the ideal trophy mount from the hunting cabin of our dreams.
What’s even better? Just in time for your first day on the mountain, we’ve teamed up with Rome SDS to giveaway a Rome Mountain Division Snowboard. So dive in here with a behind the scenes video showcasing the design process, and make sure to drop your email into the bucket for a chance to take this trophy home yourself.
More from Rome Snowboards:
Long before it ever sees snow, every board we make starts as a concept. Debated, sketched, re-sketched, digitalized, emailed, scanned, crumpled-up, emailed again. It’s safe to say the art takes a lot of forms before finally getting produced.
In the case of our 2018 Mountain Division we took a few more step’s than usual. We tagged Brooklyn based artist Dylan Goldberger to bring to life a trophy buck mount that would grace the board’s topsheet.
What makes Dylan’s illustrations even more unique is that each one comes from a wood block print. Each illustration is carved out of a block of wood, ink is applied and then pressed onto a sheet of paper to create the finished pieces.
The skill and technical ability needed to create such work is second to none and Dylan’s final product speaks for itself. We couldn’t be more stoked to feature his work on the 2018 Mountain Division!
