Lindgren & Smith

Jamey Christoph



 Jamey Christoph has shared his artwork for 
the 2014 Gay Games medal on his blog, 
Alleycats and Drifters and we just had
to show it off here on Lindgren & Smith's.

Jamey writes, "This is an incredible opportunity
for Northeast Ohio's GLBT community and I
couldn't be more proud to help out. Our design 
celebrates Cleveland and Akron's industrial 
golden age, as well as their iconic skylines - 
two great cities hosting a great cause."

"As you can see, I considered a few local 
landmarks, before settling on the more 
recognizable, city skyline concept."

"Since the medal is being embossed, it had
to be designed in negative, making it a little
tricky to figure out. At this point in the process,
 it reminds me of early 20th century woodcuts."

I wanted to create a full color design as well, 
one that is uplifting and speaks to all the exciting
things happening in Cleveland. Go Cleveland! 
Keep making us proud."
