These designs for the ribbon and engraved medals given to finishers of the Tuscaloosa Half-Marathon weren’t utilized, apart from the layout for the back of the medal. That said, I felt like they were still pretty solid designs, especially the split marathon lettering. In the interest of full disclosure: I did later find out that the silhouette was for the wrong kind of tree. Tuscaloosa’s famous for water oaks, and that silhouette’s from a variety of oak native to California, if I’m remembering correctly. Had my design been chosen, I could have corrected that with a few minutes’ work, but it ended up being a moot point.
