Every year the Hard Rock Hotel holds a special contest for team members to design pin for their anniversary. I won the 14th anniversary contest and decided to try for the 15th as well. The 15th anniversary for couples is considered the crystal anniversary, so I decided to go with that. Here were the two concepts that I created for the contest.
This was the first concept I came up with, a crystal guitar pick that covered the gold 15th anniversary and the logo and year printed on top of the crystal. I thought this one would win for sure, but it didn’t.
This was the second design concept I came up with, and this was the actual winner for the contest. The pick has 15 crystals in it, representing the 15 years the hotel had been open.
