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."
