Abdul Skateboarding Halfpipe

Abdul, the biggest skate shop in the north of Brazil, is located in Fortaleza (CE). As an underground store the brand has had a huge and rigorous target, with an understated approach to advertising. With the arrival of a new general director the company has taken on a younger, more intelligent and aspirational approach to marketing. This print advertisement presents the city of Fortaleza as a giant halfpipe, representing the way any setting can become a huge skating rink. The term “Drop the path” invites the public to view the underground world in a different way, with Abdul.

    This print ad needs more than just one image, I wanna see a campaign.

      But the ad represents only one city, where the store is based. One is enought, and it rocks!
