F19 Women’s Line


The 2019 K2 Women's Snowboard Collection offers fresh perspective on women's snowboarding. K2 wanted to elevate women's snowboard product, relating with a new consumer while retaining their current consumer base. We were tasked with communicating this vision.


The design and execution of the women's snowboard collection was a major project spanning the better part of 12 months. The collection went through a rigorous overhaul, as K2 continues its shift towards contemporary women's product. This project showcases elements of the snowboard product design process. Below are visual references that were used in the preliminary phases to showcase the consumer research and graphic direction - for proprietary purposes complete consumer research data will not be disclosed.

Graphic development begins once consumer research and general graphic direction has been approved. 'Diverse union' was a key component in designing each boards individuality, while simultaneously unifying them as a family.
