Since we launched our first model in 2012 we have been happy to have local artists creating the graphics of our skis. For us it’s really important that a ski graphic has a relationship to the intended use and environment the ski is meant for. We want the customer to look down at the ski, and feel inspired to go skiing. Our talented artist Rikke and Stine has given us just that with graphics that stick out, have local roots and inspire you to get to the mountains! Read more below about the artist and what goes into the design of the different skis!
RIKKE WIDDE VESTVIG
From the very beginning it has always been about nature. As soon as I was able to hold a pencil, I drew mountains. My friends drew houses, dogs and hearts, I drew sunsets and shades, and that has stayed with me throughout the years. The pencil has changed from lead to a digital one, but my soul and inspiration has stayed the same, only wethered by growth and experiences in life.
I guess in some way it just never ceases to amaze me how light and weather plays with all aspects of nature to show us new angles and horisonts, even in places we have seen and visited a hundred times. Now, living in one of Norway's most beautiful areas I´m constantly inspired by my deeply rooted desire to go on adventures and my love for sharing those adventures in my drawings or with friends.
As a passionate skier, my favorite environment has always been close to the mountains. I am inspired by the magnificence and splendor of the natur and am intrigued by constantly exploring contrasting elements. I grew up among the west coast mountains and my inspiration is often from my familiar surroundings.
I have been drawing and painting since my early childhood, but there is still so much more to be done!
