Aloha! I am self-employed with a small wholesale business in Hawaii. I want to create a fun keepsake Challenge coin on this 2020 Pandemic. It will have hints of being a little Hawaiian with the words "Mahalo" and "Aloha" as well as having "shaka" hand signs. I want some of the proceeds on the sale of this coin will go to the Hawaii Salvation Army.
Mahalo 2020 Pandemic Challenge Coin (also a bottle opener) - Please lookup or Google “Challenge coins”. Challenge coins are a keepsake for organizations, events, and most popular with the military. This coin is for all of us in the 2020 coronavirus pandemic. It is also a bottle opener to salute all heroes. The front side identifies essential workers and the back side identifies the rest of us doing all the popular recommended guidelines during the pandemic… shown with a super hero family.
Art for a challenge coin – When you lookup these coins, notice the nice detail… yes, it can show detail, but do not try to show buttons on a remote control or cell phone for instance. You will see that I ask for action lines for the remote control and cell phone… the action lines will simply be raised metal on the coin. The color is color-fill. It can also be relatively detailed. If you are not sure about something, just do what feels right for you… when I work with the factory, we will put your work into what will be appropriate for the mold.
As we work through the process of getting your art to the way I want to submit to the factory, we can use simple jpeg files. When we get it in final form, I will need a little higher resolution PDF files for the factory to work with.
Mahalo to all essential workers! Medical workers, a doctor and nurse are on top of the red, white, and blue map of USA. And the medical workers have capes (like a super-hero). There is also verbiage and "shaka" hand signs around the coin. See front side attachment.
Super-hero family during the pandemic. A fun scene with a mom using a cell phone, a dad using a tv remote watching the news, a girl doing her homework, and a boy washing his hands. I am hoping for a little more action pose with the mom and dad, and a little more air in the capes... again, a fun action scene! The News on TV is a great way to show other popular recommended guidelines… mask, disinfectant, toilet paper being a rare item, and the 6 ft. social distancing. There is also verbiage and "shaka" hand signs around the coin. See the back-side attachment.
