PARK CITY, Utah — Treasure Mountain Junior High students had the opportunity to design the topsheet of skis for three-time Olympian Devin Logan.
Students from Ms. Chartier’s digital media, art foundations, photoshop, and 8th-grade drawing courses participated in the design challenge, with a total of 170 ski designs submitted.
It was Chartier’s idea to partner with Logan, a 2014 Women’s Slopestyle Silver medalist. Designer David Habban also spent two days with Treasure Mountain students as they worked on their designs.
“I’ve had many skis in my lifetime and have seen many different graphics topsheets, collaborations with different artists, and they’re all so unique and cool and tie back to something meaningful to both the brand and the artists,” Logan said in a press release. “I’m excited to be doing this project with you guys and to pick the winner.”
Eventually, out of 5 finalists, 9th grader Grace Gladson’s design, depicting a fox and falling maple leaves, was chosen as Logan’s favorite.
“I was really surprised because I don’t know, I feel like there were other designs that I like more than mine,” Gladson said in a press release. “For over a year, I have wanted to do art as a career. Now I’m seeing that it is possible to do this as a career.”
PCSD has asked anyone with the ability and desire to make Grace’s ski design a reality to contact Treasure Mountain Principal Caleb Fine at email@example.com.
