Medals x3

Game Changer Awards 2014 – Medal design revealed with less than a week to go!

With just a week remaining until the Game Changer Awards winners are announced, we are delighted to reveal the design of the winners’ medals.

The Game Changer Awards winners medals were designed feature a bespoke design by Katelynne Kirk, a recent graduate from the Edinburgh College of Art (now part of the University of Edinburgh).

The design reflects the Game Changer Awards logo, also designed by Katelynne, and looks to incorporate the iconography from the award categories including most fundamentally a representation of the staff and students behind the Game Changer projects and an image of a trophy to represent success.

Katelynne recently achieved a first class BA Honours degree in Graphic Design. Examples from her portfolio of work can be found on her website:
