The regular design may not improve the passion of the contestants, especially in the major match. Let’s Look at different designs and inspiration from other running medals. So we can learn from others’ strong points to offset one’s weakness.

1) Rotating Running Medals

Rotating Running Medals

The rotating medals are used in the marathon, Chengdu, China. Giant pandas and Sichuan opera facial makeup are their symbolic signs. In order to perfectly combine the national treasure and Sichuan opera facial makeup, the designer takes the standard action of Sichuan opera “face changing” as the breakthrough point. The difference is that two faces with such high recognition degrees are integrated into the same plane and displayed in the form of “positive and negative shape” and displayed in the plane. A Sichuan opera facial makeup can turn into an innocent and cute giant panda, which forms a strong contrast in the medal and is more interesting.


  1. Using Natural culture and humanistic culture to make your running medals unique. For instance, mascot, landmark, historical Figures, etc.
  2. Breaking the established design pattern and choosing rotating medals to make your running medals more interesting.

2) 4D Running Medals
