ALL ABOARD: LET'S CELEBRATE SEXUALLY CHARGED RIDE KC TOY TRAIN BRANDING!!!



I'm sorry "RideKC" just kinda sounds dirty to me . . .

A more relevant comment from a Kansas City Insider:



"I remember when Willoughby was known for doing excellent work. The only excellent work here is convincing someone to pay you $80K to put a pair of headlights on a Weber smoker. THAT is impressive work."

KC Streetcar Authority approves branding concept

Deets:

"On Thursday, the Kansas City Streetcar Authority Inc. board approved a branding concept that will be used on the streetcar vehicles, station stops, advertising, posters and related items. The concept, branded as "RideKC," was approved by the nonprofit's 13-member board during its August meeting.

The branding was developed by Kansas City firm Willoughby Design Inc. as part of its $80,000 contract for branding and design."

That's good money for something that sounds like a 70s porno but riding along even more outdated tech.

Developing . . .

Here's the new TKC logo, and like the website itself it's worth about two cents.

KCMO city government continues to be nothing more than a taxpayer-funded ATM machine for the roiling mob on the 22nd and 29th floors at 12th and Oak.
Come on down, bring your big shopping bag, and leave with a load of cash.
And then this bright shiny new thing will ride through the dirt, grit, dilapidated streets and sidewalks, and half-empty buildings of downtown.
World class.

Kind of reminds me of the days when you could shop stores and come across a rare laugher product made in Japan or China in the gimmicks section.

Looks like an upside down android logo without the arms and legs.

Probably get sued for trademark infringement.

Paint a few Target symbols on the Killa City Express and you got a moving shooting venue.

Bear takes the first week... first week the Killa City Express will get shot up.

Fucking idiots and their train.

Why not "SLYRIDE" or " CORRUPTKC"?

Cheap fast Crossroads cocktail lunch logos.
The Weber grill one is a bit like the Android logo upside down.
Surely there are other design companies.

John Q Public said...

It should be a picture of a taxpayer bent over with a penis in his ass as that is what the toy train promises. Just another screw job for the taxpayers.

This is a great logo ... It is very thought provoking and illustrates the consensus of global warming times the population of sub atomic meteorite fractions minus the silicon campsites of 6.45 plus the weasels of documented particulars.

"Ride KC" -- SOOOOO EDGY. How about "Walk KC" to promote out city sidewalks. And Fly KC for the airport...

Ann Willoughby used to be a real talent. Though talk about headlights on a Weber...her "headlights" used to be SPECTACULAR, though these days, gravity has no doubt done its job.

Look out Addy's, One Show, Effy, CA, Graphis, et al...yeah, when monkeys fly out of my ass. This is, at best, mediocre work. More student level. Too bad, and just plain sad. She's phoning it in.

The city would have been better served -- and had something much more original -- if it were to have had a contest for area art students, with a $10K scholarship for the winner.

And saved $70K. It would have bought plenty of whatever that Approval Committee was smoking when they bought into this steamy pile of dog shit.
