Born and raised in Denver Colorado, Tristan is a 25-year-old graphic designer with an ever-expanding portfolio. He has always loved the urban/hip hop culture and incorporates it into most everything he designs. His growing knowledge stems from the Art Institute of Colorado where he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Graphic Design. He is now currently the head graphic designer for Never Summer Industries designing everything from snowboards, and longboards, to tee shirts, hats, and stickers. Among holding down a full time job Tristan is also a devoted skateboarder and is sponsored by Osiris shoes and a local skate shop, TS (Thrifty Stick). When he’s not designing or skating Tristan loves spending time creating masterpieces out of anything and everything he can get his hands on. He loves painting and drawing in all mediums, but finds the rattle can to be his favorite outlet. Tristan finds inspiration in everything around him, he is always sketching and taking pictures to use for designs or textures. His work doesn’t only reflect his individuality but is also influenced by many artists, designers and graffiti writers that he respects. Tristan is very thankful for his talent and for all the talented people that he is blessed to work alongside with. This company has always been a dream for Tristan and he is very excited to see what success the future holds.
