About white rabbit events by Medal designer Kat

One of the services offered by White Rabbit Events is bespoke, in-house medal and logo design. I (Kat) am an artist who creates from the heart, to capture imagination and inspire those who I reach – from organisers to recipients.

From start to finish my design process focuses on bringing the core of the event or brand to life. I spend time researching and discussing the background and history of an event with the client, really getting to understand their journey, passion and goals. Above all, I want the finished design to make my clients and their awesome recipients to feel inspired, proud and a part of something special.

How kat created the design for msmw 2020 medals

The Mid Sussex Marathon Weekend 2020 medal vision was to create a design which was unique, commemorative and captured the spirit of the event. MSMW is one of a kind, with 3 different races, over 3 days in 3 Mid Sussex towns (under normal circumstances!). This event really brings these communities together, working with local leisure centres and businesses, responsibly showcasing the scenic environment each town has to offer, supporting charities along with providing races for all of the family and a supportive volunteer team!

To capture the importance of the environment and community, I chose historical landmarks / places of interest from each town and together with MSMW organisers and the respective Councils, we agreed that these places reflected the community spirit in each town. They each play an important role and are places that each area is proud of. This fits the ethos of MSMW perfectly.

I then set about creating the design so that the elements would look detailed and striking, both individually and when they are overlaid as the Marathon or Half Marathon Finishers set. Myself and the MSMW team are very proud of the results and we’re really enjoying seeing the worthy recipients showing them off!

Kat is now busy planning something else very exciting for MSMW 2020 runners, so watch this space for further details!
