Warrior Games 2023: Medal Design

During my time at Populous I was given the opportunity to design the medal for the Department of Defense’s annual Warrior Games for the year of 2023. This page showcases the final medal design as well as some initial ideation and alternative explorations that lead to the final design. The medal features two distinctive sides: one prominently displaying the Warrior Games logo alongside a corresponding braille rendition of the title "Warrior Games," while the reverse side boasts an iconic interpretation of the logo. This design endeavors to create a striking and emblematic badge, symbolizing honor and achievement for the tournament's esteemed finalists.
