This week we have been given the brief for the British Art Medal Society competition.
Our task: design an art medal.
“These medals are not to be found on the chests of heroes or in athletes’ lockers. They are the contemporary expression of a much older tradition of medals as works of art.”
Check out their gallery for images of past winners.
The brief this year is to either find a way of incorporating text into the medal or design it based on a political statement.
Naturally i have chosen to go with the text!
First of all, i’m going to have a look into what an art medal is and pick out examples that i like:
Check out my Medals pinterest board for a lot more medal inspirations!
Now on to work up my own design!
