KCWO Artwork
« on: February 19, 2014, 12:03:47 PM »
Hey everyone. I am looking for ideas for 2014 KCWO artwork. This will be featured on the Teeshirt and disc. I have an artist who I trust will do a great job and do it in a timely manner. I am just looking for ideas or concepts for me to get started.

Please take a minute and tell me what you think might look cool for this year's design. Thanks in advance!

The only things that come to mind for the number 32 are freezing temperatures and Magic Johnson.  Being that the tourney is in the middle of June and we're not talking about basketball...I don't think those are going to help.

Can we find a way to graphically incorporate the courses being used for the tournament?  Maybe use a signature hole or signature aspect from each as part of the design i.e. the peace sign at WW or the clubhouse at swope or.....the dogs barking on 17 at rosie?  ;D

I am imagining an interesting concept for the artwork.  It could be an overhead 3/4 view of Kansas City except all the famous landmarks and buildings are falling over or on fire because of a severe earthquake caused by two giant hands reaching down and tearing a huge gash in the ground right in the middle of the city! 

Out of the flaming sinkhole emerges a huge disc golf basket, and in the foreground of the image a giant flying disc is spinning through the sky right at it.

I wouldn't call myself an artist, but here's a rough sketch:

While I'm not a soccer fan, how about something related to Sporting KC winning the championship.

More:
something about KS vs. MO
or intersection of I70, I29, and I35

Got these from wiki
'Paris of the Plains'
'City of Fountains' although that has it's own tournament
something about being the geographical and population center of the lower 48 states
something about jazz, Negro Baseball, BBQ, beef...
Liberty Memorial / national WWI museum

KC is Federal Reserve bank 'J'. 
Could use this logo with changing some of the words, or incorperating, Kansas City Wide Open:


especially if used in conjunction with this little blurb:
Quote
In the early 20th century under Democratic political "Boss" Tom Pendergast, Kansas City became the country's "most wide open town".

Maybe something similar but with the Kauffman Center.  This in a foil stamp would be cool.

I thought we agreed on last years logo being the corporate logo that gets used every year.  The number is the only thing that changed.

That's actually what I thought as well.  It's clean and simple.

Is this request for a second logo used only this year?
