Twisp Mayor Soo Ing-Moody emphasized how many innovative designs were submitted and her appreciation for all of the applicants’ hard work. “We appreciate the great thought that went into their submissions….making our panel’s choice a difficult one,” says Ing-Moody.
“This design conveys Twisp as a strong and proud small American town – comprised of a vital and growing community (reflected in the vegetables and our iconic farmer’s market),” says Twisp Mayor Soo Ing-Moody.
The panel carefully reviewed the many designs which were varied in style, size and shape. In the end Jennifer’s artwork was selected. As Mayor Ing-Moody explains that “This design conveys Twisp as a strong and proud small American town – comprised of a vital and growing community (reflected in the vegetables and our iconic farmer’s market). It was chosen due to its simplicity in theme, potential for use in the future, and its widespread appeal. We are indeed proud to be a thriving example of small town America!”

About the Artist – Jennifer McGill
Jennifer is a painter, illustrator, designer and mother. Although she does not live in the Methow Valley, her connection to Twisp, its agriculture and genuine personality prompted her to enter the competition.
Jennifer explains, “My design is inspired by the American flag with a twist on Twisp. The flag design shares Twisp’s amazing gardens and home-grown appeal as true Americana represented in our American Flag.”
