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."

What are the approx H and W dimensions of the book? Is it full colour print?

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

    • Thank you! Got out for a few holes so it was a good day in spite of work!
    • 2/25: Played two rounds today with dad at a different course than usual. Shot 96 and 93. A few nice strings of pars and made several amazing putts (). Mostly bogeys other than that but managed a couple of absolute blow-up holes in each round that helped to guarantee 90+ scores from an otherwise very nice day of golf. I could complain about "sand-traps" sans-a-single-spec-of-sand with 10-foot wide puddles in them, or mushy fairways, or waiting 5-minutes for the 4-some in front of you on every shot, but there wasn't a notes field on the scorecard.  Practice is paying off, though. Hit my drives farther than ever, draws when I wanted them, and the fade didn't let me down when I needed it. 3/4 "flighted" shots are the new go-to approach of choice all the way out to 160+ with my 3-iron, and (n)GIRs have jumped up considerably. I've rambled on about my short-game improvements before, but it continues. Holed a pitch shot from about 10 yards and stopped 2 others 6 inches from the pin. Gotta play some more rounds from the front so I get used to stringing pars together. Realized today that I don't just get nervous about it, I also get cocky. Weird combination. 
    • I really like the travel of the sweetspot on the backswing. Kinda Nicklaus-esque.   They just stall a bit and it happens after impact. Can see how the belt loops are rotating all the way to impact.
    • At the top level the men may still be much better than the women at putting. Paige McKenzie once talked about how she played against some college guys who destroyed her on putting and she thought she was pretty good relative to her peers. I expect the best pro women ballstrikers have to work even less on putting to compete successfully than the guys where every edge is crucial just to get a card and make cuts. I love to watch Rory and DJ crank it out there. But I also get a kick out of Jim Furyk and Mo Martin's precision oriented play. It's all good. If they want to make accuracy more important for PGA players, all they have to do is grow the average event rough up a bit more so there's more of a penalty on every errant shot on the loss of spin and swing/ball speed reduction. Those are real issues for the sport...at least for facilities that don't cater to higher income golfers.
    • I have the Zepp 2 Golf (the round sensor).    Ive read the manual multiple times, and have approximately 500 ball strikes.    As I'm new to golf I can't seriously vouch for its accuracy, but I will say this: it's helping me improve my golf swing.    The 3D swing analysis is a great tool as is the swing comparison capability. In my opinion once you learn about what the tool measures and how it can be quite effective it    However, I do have a question: In the daily swings window, what does the red "P" next to the specific swing data mean?   Please and Thanks for any input.    V/R,  Chris
