Safety First, Dude
“Safety first, Dude” is a custom skate deck that was created as a birthday gift / going-away present for Fabrizio Minutolo, the Italian-Spanish-African-Australian-German founder of “Chill Mode 2000″ and master of the “Maximum Chill” ! Illustrating Fab’s passion for the ocean, diving, photography, skating, surfing, animals, fauna and flora, the design was somewhat inspired by the oldskool typography-filled surf & skate designs of Jim Phillips, especially in the bold colour usage and image-heavy layout. This in turn highlights Fab’s colourful, permanently happy & super-chilled personality. As the ultimate hombre and one of the coolest humans alive to all who know him, we say maximum respect to the original Von Dudenstein ! Big thanks go out to Siraaj Petersen and Shannon Loxton for assisting to get this one out in under 4 days.
