About the Work

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater inspired a generation to take up skating for real. So, to promote the remaster of the series after its 20th anniversary, we decided to reward skaters by mixing the real world and the virtual one. In skateboarding, the more you skate and slide, the more you scratch your board. So, to promote Activision’s video game, we partnered with Birdhouse (Tony Hawk’s own skateboard brand) and created “Scratchboards”: limited-edition decks inspired by lottery scratch cards. The boards, introduced by Tony Hawk himself, had everything a scratch card should: metallic colors, lucky charm symbols and, of course, hidden prizes. We used a special paint to create a top layer that could be scratched off to reveal a hidden second layer with in-game reward codes. That way, the more you skate, the luckier you get. The Scratchboards campaign was launched with an online film starring Tony Hawk. Fans had to share it on Twitter or Instagram for the chance to win their own Scratchboard. Skaters flooded social media with our video, and a selection of pro skaters and influencers got their hands on our Scratchboards before anyone else to help the campaign spread.
