Selbert Perkins Design, the design firm that created the LAX Gateway glass pylon project, developed all the interior and exterior graphics for the BCS Championship Game tonight. In partnership with the Tournament of Roses for 11 years, the design firm also designed the game tickets, programs, credentials, VIP cards, etc.

The designers wanted to use larger than life imagery of players in motion to demonstrate strength and heroism. The players are shown in black and white against a full color background of the American flag in motion. Since football is an American game, they added the background of the flag to reflect this unique American experience.

And it should be an experience to see the thawed out Texas Longhorn and Alabama Crimson Tide fans at the Rose Bowl. You know how those wacky Texans and southerners love their football teams. Face paint, bbq, the whole works. It should be an amazing sight in Pasadena tonight.
