Kindred Custom Snowboards

Ultra-quality handcrafted snowboards. Bringing snowboarding back to its roots with precision and style.

Angie and Evan design and build snowboards and skis together. They came to us with the best of problems: their business was growing.

In order to manage their growth, Kindred needed an online presence as well as an identity that would unify their brand and help to spread their work with a consistent message. We worked with Angie and Evan to create an aesthetic that reflected the company's philosophy and the beauty of their products.

Even VisInc got in on the action. We collaborated with Angie and Evan on a board design, then documented their meticulous process on film.

Using the old-world technique of Marquetry, all designs are hand cut, then paint or wood-burnt details are added to accent the wood grain of each board, resulting in a functional work of art that is a reflection of it's rider.

We had a wonderful experience on this project and are thrilled with the result. Working with Ange and Evan was a treat.

The future looks bright for Kindred. In the 2014/2015 season, Kindred is offering a Limited Edition Series of snowboards, split-boards and skis that will include standardized shapes and graphics. These boards hold true to the process of their custom work and highlight the strongest shapes they've developed to date.

With only 70 boards and pairs of skis built for 2014, the eventual owners will have a sense of riding something uncommon and special. If you're interested in finding your perfect ride, more info can be found on their snazzy new website.
