Melbourne-based fine artist Sam Chirnside explores the intersection between art & design, mixing natural elements with cosmic & spiritual phenomena that aims to delve beyond the edges of consciousness through the use of mixed media techniques. The series he’s created with Globe explores the morphing of underwater life through his mind’s eye.

In order to off-set the timber they use to construct they’re skateboards, Globe’s goal is to engage in forestry efforts that replace far more than they consume.
To that effect, they have partnered with the National Forest Foundation (NFF) to donate to their tree-planting program. Globe’s yearly donations to the NFF help plant more than three times the amount of trees they harvest annually in making their skateboards.
The NFF is a United States non-profit organisation that launched an ambitious campaign to plant 50 million trees across public National Forests between 2018 and 2023. The NFF partners with the United States Forest Service to target National Forests impacted by wildfire, pests and other disturbances. Globe is proud to be making a contribution towards that effort.
