What is Rolling Tree?
Rolling Tree is a skateboarding & art company. All of our products are collaboratively designed within our open, global community.
What do you guys produce?
Skate decks, art, and clothing. We’re producing two new skate decks starting January 9th! A directional top mount and another board we’re going to figure out later.
What is collaborative design?
Anybody can submit ideas and designs for our products, as well as provide feedback and make improvements to ideas and designs from others. Everything is designed by the community and then made by skaters.
How can I participate?
The Rolling Tree Design Projects take place in our two Facebook design groups, where you can share ideas, submit designs, give feedback, support your favorites, and provide suggestions for the community. Join us here:
What do the designers get?
Top Contributors will get hooked up with clothing, printed art, protos, stickers, and other stuff from The Rolling Tree Skateshop
What’s a Top contributor?
Here’s a blog post that explains how to get ‘top contributor’ status.
I’ve never made a 3D model of a board.
No worries. If you have an idea for a board, we’ve got 3D modelers in the community, so halfbaked ideas, sketches and designs always have the potential to get rendered. Just be sure to post your design with a drawing and include all the specs. A detailed description helps a ton! Better yet, let’s have a Google Hangout and throw ideas back and forth.
I don’t know how to make computer graphics.
Dat’s cool. We’re a community of all kinds of artists and we’re all about collaboration. Share your sketches and ideas with us!
I don’t have Facebook. Can I still be a part of this?
Connect with us on Twitter and Instagram for updates, highlights, vibes, and news. We’ll also post content from the community projects on our Projects Page.
How will your skateboards be produced?
We build all our decks in-house and produce them with really nice maple and eco-friendly adhesives. Our CNC router precisely shapes all our decks, bringing the community designs to life. Check out The Rolling Tree Skateshop
Do you sponsor skaters?
Yes. Send us an edit to firstname.lastname@example.org if you’re interested in sponsorship.
Where are you located?
Just outside of downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota. We’re constantly traveling though! If you’ve been to our shop – you’re one of the few.
Please throw us ANY other questions you have!
