Art directing the Quiksilver Pro NYC

No doubt you’ve heard about the Quiksilver Pro in New York City, for which the holding period started today. It’s the first-ever ASP World Title event on the east coast of the United States and boasts an unprecedented $1million dollar prize purse! What you won’t know is the huge amount of work that went into the event artwork and identity for both the NYC event and the Quiksilver Pro France next month…

David Carson, the designer famously quoted as the man who "changed the public face of graphic design" was commissioned to art direct and work on creative concepts for the 2011 Quiksilver Pro New York and later, the 2011 Quiksilver Pro France. To achieve a broad range of concepts and styles David collaborated with New York designers/artists/illustrators; George Bates, Michael Lotenero and Justin Kauffmann.

We’ve collated a good deal of the collaborative art & design concepts created, and presented them along with a short interview with David Carson and COTW artist George Bates. Check it out
