If i had my own skate company i would name it Quest Skateboards because i feel its one of those strange type of company names but yet its a good name as an insperation to kids out there.(im sure there parents wouldnt mind the name either,cha-ching)plus its one of those skatebord distributor companys that sound good when you say it kind of like Habitat.
LOGO:The logo for he company would be a picture of a hobo holding a sign up that says "Quest,i did"on it in front of a massive L.A. intersection with many roads.(It would be kind of like one of tos rebel companys like Shortys,Hook-Us,and Baker. -Thanks for reading this Peace.... By the way I NEED NEW SHOES!!!

If I had my own skate/shoe company I would name it ICE, because me and my two friends would be in charge because, I don't think I'd be able to handle all the work. I would name it ICE for Ian, Chase, and Erik. I would put Chase as the designer, because he can draw really good. Ian would be the model because he is a clothes fanatic. And I would OK the board graphics because I "think" I know what people like on the bottom of a board. I would make sure the graphic isn't too overcrowded, like most Brigade boards. Our "Team" board would board would have big bubble letters, spelling "ICE", taking up the whole board. The "I" would be tilted to the left. The "C" would be centered with a star in the middle of the letter. And the "E" would be tilted to the right. The whole work has a line under it. All of the letters and the star have diamonds on themand are the color silver. Of us three I am the only one to start my own graphic. It is a big brown bear rockin' a huge platinum necklace saying "ICE" in diamonds. The team board and the bear borad would come in two sizes: 7.825 x 31.725 and 7.5 x 31, because we all like to ride diiferent sizes. They wolud also have steep noses and tails. They would be a very durable 7 ply board that isn't heavy.
Our shoes would be the most durable shoes out there. They would have air pads in the heel, like the DVS HUFS (comfortable). The would have an already shoe-gooed toe cap, that doesn't look like $h!t. It would have hiiden lace hoops and the normal kind. It will have very strong sole because I get mad when my sole wears off really fast. They would come in colors such as, red/black/gum sole, red/black/red sole, black/gray/gum sole, white/gray/gray sole and black/orange/black sole. They would also come in every size possible. After getting our name out we would start making other skate acsesorries, such as hardware, griptape, risers, wheels, trucks, socks, shirts, shorts/pants. So pretty much everything. then we would make a lot more graphics. Having my/our own company would be my/our dream. Please pick me. Thanks!! Your Pal, ERIK
