Description: Logo created for a charity golf outing sponsored by the NY Rowing Association. Unfortunately, the outing actually never took place due to lack of sponsorship, even though all the print and embroidery materials had already been produced. What a waste.

Thanks for the comment bogglins. The colors were actually chosen on the muted side purposly. The colors were meant to convey sky (blue) and grass (green), and I didn't want them to be too vibrant because the logo would come off as looking garish and juvinile. The golf event was meant to attract corporations and wealthy contributors, so it needed to be somewhat upscale and more vibrant colors wouldn't have worked.

Thanks Antonio. That's pretty much what I was going for when I designed the logo. I'm glad you picked up on it.

This is great. The only thing i maybe would change: the colors. The perspective with the ball is amazing!

that must have been one hell of a brief

Reply
sdijock Sep. 06 '11

LOL @ Raja! No real brief to speak of for this client. Basically they let me do whatever I wanted as long as the logo incorporated rowing, golf, and New York. Although, I did show them a pencil sketch before I went to the computer, so at least they had an idea of what they were getting.

It seems to me that the ores look like shovels. Also, the line weights you used are a bit flat and some varying line weights could really help this concept come to life. Overall, little dry and could probably use some scroll lines as well.

sdijock Dec. 06 '11

@brionisaacs - Thanks for your comments. If you take a look at competition sculling oars they do in fact look exactly like I've illustrated, with squared off heads. And the line weights within the Statue of Liberty illustration do vary, so I'm not exactly sure what you're referring to. I also think the concept of Liberty using her torch as a golf tee is anything but dry, as you can tell by some of the favorable remarks by other designers about this logo. Not sure how much more conceptual you can get for a golf tournament taking place in NY, but I'd love to hear your ideas of what you would consider a non dry concept. **You're definitely entitled to your opinion, although, this logo has been in the gallery - twice. Sorry you're so upset over my critique of your horse nail logo. Be well.
