LSW - Book Cover Design Discussion

88 posts in this topic

Dave and I have a few ideas we like, but we thought we'd throw it open to the rest of y'all too.

Tell us - or perhaps even better yet - scribble out an idea and SHOW us what you think the cover of "Lowest Score Wins" should look like.

The text on the front cover will be a combination of this:

Lowest Score Wins

Techniques, Stats, and Strategies to Shoot Lower Scores on the Golf Course NOW.

Erik J. Barzeski & David Wedzik

If we like your idea over the ideas we have now, we'll reward you somehow.

I work well with numbers, but unfortunately when it comes to abstract visualization and working with white space and other stuff I'm just not as imaginative.... ask me to work with statistics and pretty reports that actually say something and I can help though :dance:

I have a little photoshop/illustrator knowledge.  I might be able to take a crack at it for fun.  When do you need it by?

End of April.

It doesn't need to be fully specified. Even sketches or written out ideas are good.

We like our idea, but there may be a better one out there. I've told it to @nevets88 but he'll keep it to himself. It's "simple."

I like that one, but I would take a more Aerial view of a golf hole, and have the path of the ball go from tee to fairway, to green. Just to show that the book is about all aspects of the game. Maybe show a darkened transparent circle area on around were the ball lands. I would find a hole that bends to the right or left, just to make the path stand out better.

We probably aren't including a photo of a hole. Licensing issues and whatnot. A drawing maybe, but I dunno. Like I said we have some ideas but are still leaving minds open. And the title will have to be on one side, and the spine too, with some text on the back with a UPC, ISBN, etc.

You have my details if you want to ask the relevant questions.

Okay, but I don't have any questions. :-D

I know, but you should.

Agree to disagree. :-)

That's not really the style cover for which we're looking.

Interesting designs mixing golf and stats. @iacas - pulled these from the design site I mentioned. Maybe these might inspire the noggin. They look like smartphone app icons (duh).

@iacas , what was wrong with the graphics you used for the indiegogo page? The scorecard, pencil, tee and other assorted crap? I thought that looked good, could make a good cover and the presence of the scorecard kinda makes your point early on.

I liked that as well.

    Lowest Score Wins
  • Posts

    • First round foursome clubchampionship was yesterday. First round is to cut the field to 16 pairs, format Stableford without handicap. You get 3 points for a birdie, 2 for a par, 1 for a bogey. Worse than bogey is zero points. My playing partner had the tee off on hole 1 and hit it left in the water. I had a shot avoiding some trees at 140y from the flag and hit it at 3 feet, par.  After 5 holes 9 points (1 bogey), but then a streak of 3 bad holes and still 9 points. But then 3 pars in a row and all together 11 pars and two bogeys (24 points) was enough to end 5th (best team 31 points).  Next weekend we will play against the team that ended 13th. That will be matchplay. 
    • Does it make sense to write ".........combined together"? Why not just write "............combined"? Let's not call the kettle black. Anyway..... the following are excerpts from The Australian Golf Club's Dress Code. They are not typical of what is expected in Australia, but  some of the snootier clubs are very strict and do little to change the stuffy reputation of the game. ‘Sporting attire’. Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. Closed in shoes must be worn with socks at all times (see Definitions for appropriate socks).  Men - Collared shirts which must be tucked in at all times. Trousers must be tailored and worn with a belt. Tailored shorts to the knee, with a belt, may be worn. When wearing shorts on the course, Members must wear long socks or short white socks which are either plain or which bear only a Golf Club logo. Anklet type socks are not acceptable. Shoes must be of a type which have been specially manufactured for the playing of golf.  Jeans of any description are not acceptable anywhere in the Clubhouse or on the Course. Children 12 years or younger are exempt.  If you turn up here wearing socks with a small Nike logo they will sell you a pair of plain white ones for about $30.
    • May 27th:- 10 mins full swing practice (Driver). Moved the tee further forward in the stance, and concentrated on sliding the hips to initiate the through swing.  
    • Whether I score better riding vs. walking depends on who I am with. I have two friends who are VERY slow players and if I am in the cart with them for some reason it cost my 5 strokes a round.
    • Playing there next year. My buddy is getting married there, we have discussed this very topic and have agreed to re-tee as we will never play there again. Plus with our scores it really doesn't matter an 8 there will match a couple others on the card.
