Sk8er Girl: Product Design

Sk8er Girl Skateboards by Yva Barbour

Skateboards are for boys, right?  Not so much.  Sk8er Girl is a brand of skateboards that caters to girls.  The colors are bright and cheerful, and the patterns, type, and illustrations are fun and playful.  The characters developed for this design may be black and white, but really they are anything BUT black and white…just like the little girls that ride these boards, they are cute and full of personality.

Logo Design

YvaBarbourPortfolio 10

These are just a few of the logos I have designed.  They each have a different style, because the brands they are representing are each unique and have a different story to tell.  Some companies will want to build their brand with images, while others prefer the use of type.  The process of building a logo begins with a brand persona and ends with a design that reflects that vision.

Pipsqueaks: Branding for Infants

Portfolio Pages Final 7


For this branding project, I came up with the idea for Pipsqueaks, a clothing line for infants and toddlers.  Pip, the brand’s mascot embodies the innocence of childhood and can always be found peeking around corners and holding a flower.  This playful theme has everything to do with the sense of discovery that every parent can relate to.  These are mock-ups of what the in-store, outdoor, and promotional items would look like.  The hang tag is a working pacifier holder that can be used after purchase with any standard pacifier.
