Glad to see people thinking about art and design. Creating designs that are original and speak of the event is not an easy process. Please keep in mind that there will likely be more than one design and that they will be used in different media. For example, there will be hotstamped discs for sure, and likely full color discs as well. Please visit http://www.innovadiscs.com/discs/customdiscs.html
to learn more about art specs. Discs will be used both for player packages and in small runs for fundraising. (While at the Innova and Discraft sites, check out their fund-raising opportunities.) In addition to discs, there will be tee shirts (full color disc designs can be duplicated here) and probably embroidered golf shirts and caps. Embroidery design is slightly different again. Another slightly different design would be what I'll call more of a corporate logo that would be used on letterhead, sponsorship proposals, etc.
As to the design itself, please note that the use of the globe, while enticing, has kind of become almost a cliche because of over-use. My take on the 2009 Worlds is that is not just the PDGA Worlds, but it's the KANSAS CITY Worlds. So, I'm partial to designs that incorporate elements that reflect life in KC or its heritage. For example, the Iowa Worlds (both of them) used agricultural motifs among their logos. Nashville used music as a theme.
Please note that Jack Lowe and John Chapman are the head guys for the pro-am worlds, and no doubt have a time-table to get moving. Emails or phone calls directly to them about the worlds is a superior method of communciating that talking to them out here. I know I often don't have time to respond out here in a timely manner, but do try to keep my email box clean.
