Stoked News is looking for graphic designers who skateboard, snowboard, mt bike, bmx, surf, etc. Can you express the “soul” of your sport, something you can “feel” and without all the in-your-face branding of the big corporations. It needs to be a celebration of what feel action sports should be about: having fun with your friends and not an ad for a multi-million dollar corporation. Use your artistic talents to make some extra $’s.
