GWRRA announced its 40th Anniversary Logo Contest winner recently. The honor went to Rhonda Cook of Des Monies, Iowa.
With over 30 years of experience in graphic design, Cook crafted a logo incorporating what she felt was important to GWRRA Members, making sure it had “a wow factor” and elements that were “appealing, not busy, but still had class.” She explains, “I wanted to make sure I had the red, white and blue in there. GWRRA is worldwide and so I wanted the world to be included.” She also used the color gold because of associations of the color gold to grandness and royalty. The motto and dates of GWRRA’s anniversary are a couple other features of the logo.
“It was a lot of fun. I got on a roll.” That roll is because Cook loves to create. That’s why three years ago after the promotion company she worked for closed its doors, she opened the doors to her own business, Infinite Color Works, LLC. “I’ve been guided around to where I needed to be in anything creative.” Word of mouth has generated much business. Her orders range from racing decals for stock cars to T-shirts. Because of these projects, Cook knew that the 40th Anniversary logo might need to be an image that would work on different formats, such as paper, electronic communications, as well as on fabric.
Cook heard about the contest from her friend Duayne (D.J.) Johnson, whom she rides with on the back of his Blue Blaze GL1500. The two meet over 20 years ago and have been friends and support for each other ever since. They are both Members, Cook since 2009, but she says D.J. “has been a member for a long time and into Chapter life and goes to a lot of events.” They both belong to Chapter A in Des Moines. Cook adds that she’s always been creative. The other thing she knows for sure and proudly states it, “I am definitely a Gold Wing gal.”
