Quasi Skateboards

A fresh wave of inspiration hit the team at Quasi to produce their latest release of apparel and hardware. Working against a corporate mentality, the latest drop continues to work in harmony through an independent operation of four friends that draw inspiration from everyday experiences to design new styles. For autumn/winter 18 extra attention has been given to graphics through loop stitch embroidery, metallic ink highlights and hand drawn lines. Layered finishes have been given to new season appliques, seen on the Quasi Filmer Caps which offer a highly flexible 6-panel design with old school typography and a 3D stitched edge. The Dome Hoodie presents a white skull image with bright colour pops, applied using a textural stitch design.

A nonspecific - but distinctive - aesthetic has been developed since the brands inception in 2015. You’ll find reworks of classic cartoon characters, bold colour strokes and carefully sourced old

school imagery across staple silhouettes. Breaking free from producing standard screen printed tees, a focus on texture through combining print techniques results in intriguing details and noticeable quality. Collaborations with Nike in 2017 and 2018 boasted exclusive limited editions that followed a super clean finish with notable skate tech throughout.

Seeing a new creative opportunity, the same team that brought us Mother Collective (which unfortunately had to shut down) has ventured onto new ground bringing forth a similar, independently minded focus that gives no space to corporate propositions. Run by Chad Bowers alongside Jake Johnson, Tyler Bledsoe and Gilbert Crockett, Quasi is based in Ohio and operates on a ‘when it’s right, it’s right’ design basis. If a sense of force or fall in drive arises, you’ll see the guys take a hiatus until inspiration strikes again, ensuring the brand isn’t just for sales sake.
