Alien Workshop #2.


Obviously if your company is called Alien Workshop you are going to have to do something with aliens and UFOs at some point for art direction. I think it was a good choice not to totally beat that angle to death with graphics. Alien has used the visiting little guy and the occasional UFO reference, but they have never overdone it with flying saucer imagery. It is much more fascinating to have vague and mysterious art that doesn't directly match up with the name it is being sold under.

At the age of ten I was fascinated by this ad. I also wasn't sure if it was a company or a place to get your board repaired.

What's unusual is that a snowboard company, Morrow, I think, had an ad right about the same time that was just an abstract and grainy BW photo experiment. It's like they saw the first couple Alien ads and copied them.
