The Winning Goggle Design

May 30, 2007
SUN VALLEY, ID - (News Release) - Scott Wintersports' Design-A-Goggle contest stirred the creative juices of hundreds of designers young and old. An overwhelming number of entries flooded the Scott office over the course of the contest.

"The response and quality of the designs submitted truly blew us away. Choosing just one winner was quite a challenge, stated Gabe Glosband, Scott Wintersport Marketing Director.

When it came down to it, Jake Pearlstein a 16 year-old snowboarder currently living in New York City and riding for Method Board Shop designed a goggle with a strap concept that the judges could not overlook.

Jake's winning design will be produced for a mid-winter release to retailers nationwide. Production will be extremely limited as will the number of goggles that can be purchased by each storefront.

As they received so many quality designs, Scott expanded the prizing to go ten deep. Artwork for all 10 winners can be seen at: www.scottusa.com/designagoggle.

Scott USA teamed up with Los Angeles-based artist Mike Stilkey and Nelson, British Columbia-based artist Chelsey Freyta to produce two super-stylie versions of Scott’s Fix and Aura goggle lines each. Stilkey is known for his mixture of ink, colored pencil, paint and lacquer. His scenes are humanistic fairy tales with an air of mystery, wit, and contemplation. Freyta’s illustrations depict weird environments that are fantastical and slightly deranged. The goggles will be available for the 2010/2011 season.
