Commemorative Coin

One of the first projects I undertook at Cruise and Maritime Voyages, was designing a commemorative coin for the ship they were about to launch, Magellan.

 

I had to find a way to incorporate the company’s logo, as well as an image of the ship, while bearing in mind that the embossing only allowed for 2 levels to
be used.

 

I took a silhouette of the ship’s profile and decided to use that as a raised section on the reverse, and have the year debossed on the sea to add interest on the back, and used the company’s brand typeface throughout.
