Surf's Up!

Inspired by how vintage encyclopedia graphics achieve the maximum visual impact with deceptively simple and minimalist layouts, artist Gene Rogovitz created his stark "info-graphic" series as an homage to these bygone books and well-known objects. This beachy print is doubly nostalgic as it also captures the excitement the artist felt when he received his first surfboard at just 7 years old. Like an artifact displayed in a museum, Rogovitz memorializes these water-bound wonders in his punchy print that is filled with facts about the surfboard's first appearance and the history of the design. With timeless graphic appeal and a slick aesthetic, this print will brighten up the home of your favorite wave chaser. Designed and printed on Long Island, New York.

Gene Rogovitz studied at the Fashion Institute of Technology, where he received his degree in Graphic Design. He went on to receive his Masters in Art Education from CW Post, and is now a Technology teacher at West Babylon High School teaching Graphic Communications.

His vision is to capture the essence of the ocean and its many components, inspired by the variety of salt-aged goodness that lives and thrives in the sea. With over 25 years spent surfing—both locally on Long Island and in many locations worldwide—he draws from this major influence in his life.
