Don Pendleton has, over the course of 20 years, become one of skateboarding’s most accomplished artists. His distinctive work is highly sought after (Pendleton lists dozens of brands, ranging from Heroin and Zero to the bands Phish and Pearl Jam, on his design resume) and, because it is so closely associated with Alien Workshop and Element, screams “skate culture” to the discerning consumer.
After accumulating such an extensive portfolio Pendleton is now set on a whole new adventure: his company DARKROOM. Working with Mike Sinclair and State Footwear’s Kevin Furtado, this newish venture is driven completely by Pendleton’s creativity. His brand officially launched in October 2018 and it has something for everybody, but is still 100% Pendleton.
