Kayak seat concepts created in a "Good, Better, Best" scenario for Old Town Canoe and Kayak. The purpose of the project was to bring more of a visual interest and color to the kayak seat through color and material applications.
Compression molded EVA with a jersey exterior and a sublimated screen printed pattern - Good Scenario
Color blocked spacer mesh with pop accent color - Good Scenario
Custom molded EVA with mesh and color matched accent color - Better Scenario
Molded PU exterior with soft foam padding - Better Scenario
Perforated EVA covered with mesh and a durable nylon ripstop - Best Scenario
