How many sides of the package require graphics design?
List the size requirement(s) for your package graphics design

What is your industry?
Precious Metal Refining
Describe the target audience for your package graphics
These coins will be distributed to partners, collectors, and consumers who participate in our Recycled Jewelry Programs. Our Recycled Jewelry programs, though on a small scale, help reduce the environmental and social impacts of precious metal mining around the world. We'd like the design stamped on these commemorative coins to embody that idea. The design should be clean, distinguished and have some type of eco friendly theme.
What 3 things would you like to communicate to your audience through your package graphics design?
Style and Concept
What package graphics design styles do you like?
What colors do you want to see in your package graphics design?
This design will be a stamp that is printed on a metal coin, so color is not applicable. Design concepts in black and white are perfectly fine.
What colors do you NOT want to see in your package graphics design?
Same answer as above.
What adjectives should best describe your package graphics design?
What content must be included in the package graphics design?
I've uploaded a set of our logos and icons that could be used in the design, although it is not imperative. As long as the text of the John Galt Refining name appears, that will be sufficient. However feel free to incorporate the icons if you feel like it.
