Magenta Graphics by Panday Soy
Magenta - founders Soy Panday, Vivien and Jean Feil do as much as possible themselves; Soy makes all the graphics, from logos to boards and promotional material, Vivien runs the business side and Jean takes care of distribution and photography. All the other people involved in Magenta are skateboarders too - so no shady middlemen or shrewd businessmen here. With its creative, for-skaters-by-skaters approach, Magenta Skateboards has already made a name for itself in Europe and is expanding in America and Japan.
