50 Years and Counting

We already teased this project but didn’t yet show you the result. For the 50th anniversary of the Museum of Gdańsk we were invited to design the anniversary medal that would be presented to people who were important for the Museum’s history. We worked on the graphic design while the 3D design and production supervision were superbly done by Biuro Kreacja: Dorota Terlecka.

One side of the medal shows the Museum’s logo surrounded by a shape inspired by an architectural detail from one of the museum’s buildings. It is, in fact, an interpretation of a gothic ceiling with its characteristic spiky forms. On the other side there is a typographic design with a Latin motto chosen for the occasion, which translates as “To Each Their Own.” For this we chose a modernised serif letter inspired by Roman capitals. The medal is packed in a simple box with silver print.

This was a new and exciting experience but we are particularly grateful for Dorota’s expertise because object design is a very different animal than the regular flat work we do…
