IGA Unveils New Logos

Idaho Golf Association Unveils New Logos

February 9, 2018

Boise, Idaho – The Idaho Golf Association (IGA) unveiled three new logos today in advance of the 2018 Boise Golf and Travel Show. The new logos consist of an official seal, a casual logo, and an IGA Junior Tour logo.

“I liked the existing mark of the IGA, but unfortunately it limited us in its versatility due the large amount of detail,” said IGA Executive Director Adam McCormick, of the reasoning behind the change. “That being said, we felt it was important to capture the iconic outline of the state of Idaho as well as the immediately distinguishable golf tee found within the center of the mark. We drafted dozens of options, from the traditional crest to modern concepts, and ultimately kept coming back to the iconic Idaho shape. After consulting with our allied golf associations we felt having two options, formal and casual, would give us the best branding moving forward. Our third mark will be associated with the IGA Junior Tour.”

The three newly released logos replace all existing logos effective immediately.
