About this project

This is a straightforward project.  Each year the City of San Antonio comes together and celebrates 11 days of Fiesta! read more here:  link to official Fiesta page

Fiesta is an important part of San Antonio's cultural traditions and heritage. Part of these traditions is buying, trading and obtaining Fiesta! medals and challenge coins.  Medals are worn on your clothing and reflect your interests, affiliations and likes.  They are limited-production and typically change each year.  They are created by many different sorts of organizations, agencies, businesses and individuals.

Our creation is based upon "El dia de los muertos" or Day of the Dead.  It features a Oaxaca-style skull, with a banner of flowers and a banner flag that reads "Fiesta! 2013".  It will hang from a ribbon drape on a jump ring.  The final product will be refined from the image included on this kickstarter.  It will be die-cast on a gold-colored metal.

Funds raised will be used to contract with a local company to mass-produce our design, in a die-struck, hard enamel form.

For a pledge of $10.00, you can receive your own collectible medal when they are ready in April.  Pledges of $100.00+ receive 5 dia de los muertos medals and 1 "mystery medal", handmade of my design.

Risks and challenges

Risks: little to none. We will use a reputable local company to oversee the die-cast fabrication and painting process. We expect no hiccups. They have a proven track record of on-time delivery as scheduled.

Challenges: Translating our proposed artwork into a design that falls under our vision. Art is subjective, but we have spent a lot of time designing, picking and choosing imagery that conveys the theme and aesthetic we'd like to see on our medal. The final revision will be in the hands of the die-cast artist, but we are confident our vision will be communicated and the final product will be beautiful.
