So recently, I co-opted in a design competition with my girlfriend to create the next Hard Rock Hotel Anniversary Pin. My girlfriend is very creative and intuitive when it comes to reading client needs, however, she’s never used photoshop or illustrator and we didn’t have enough time till the deadline for me to teach her even the basics. So we agreed that if she wrote up and sketched exactly what she wanted the pin to look like that I would help her in photoshop create a finished product look and together we came up with this design as well as one for the hotel of the year award pin. Unfortunately the committee could only pick one entry per contestant and went for the anniversary pin. In the end it was minted and this is what came out.
