Corn Belt - UPDATE 9-14

Recommended Posts

Last week a new Cy-Hawk Trophy was unvailed, and by Tuseday it was scraped, you can read about it here if you're unfamilar with story. A local morning radio show in Des Moines has an idea for Championship Belt called the "Corn Belt" to use for the the new Cy-Hawk Trophy. I thought It sounded like a pretty good idea so I came up with this concept, I think I have a pretty good start, but I think it needs more flare, any good idea for making this better?

Loving it man.

There are so many different trophy designs, and this would go right up there with the Floyd and the Iron Skillet.

That looks amazing. Maybe you coulphase the team logos to mark their location in the state of Iowa.

The idea of a championship wrestling-like belt for football is just awesome. What player wouldn't want to hold a trophy like that? I do think you could make it a little more detailed though.

I would put a small I State and a small Hawkeye where the two universities are respectively

It seriously is. I wish they would start doing this.

I'm super cereal.

Make the borders of the three medalians the texture and design of corn ears (or the inside parts of all three.)

That's a great idea, ill try that. Thanks for the suggestion

This is a fantastic idea. I'd drop the "champion" part and just call it "the corn belt". The illibuk isn't the illibuk champion.

Just a minor thing. This is as good as you can get as a modern trophy!

If you do that, maybe replace the state of Iowa with the sponsor logo (and I guess drop the bottom banner or move the top banner to the bottom and drop the top one. You can then use the state inside of the top circle where the sposor is now. It'll add some color to the middle and at least give you some kind of design there, as the state outline of Iowa is... well, it's not the most interesting centerpiece.

Thanks for all of the comments

I added a corn kernal pattern to the background of the 3 medalians, I think it makes it pop a little more. Does it stil need something inside the State shape?

I want to keep the "Champion" banner, the radio guys that Im doing this for all calling it it the "Corn Belt Championship", and plus, I've never seen a championship belt without "Champion" on it.

I just noticed that I need to fix the ear of corn on the sponsor logo.

Looks great, it does make it pop. Personally, I wouldn't want anything in the state outline. The kernel pattern makes the belt. Good job.

Love the corn pattern. for the inside of the state, just to take away open space you could put a black and red star in Iowa City and Ames

Just tooting my own horn, the Cornbelt just some serious airtime on a local sports talkshow.

Would you consider swapping the State of Iowa and the CyHawk logo to see how that works?
