Faith, trust and pixie dust! It’s time to reveal the runDisney Tinker Bell Half Marathon medal! Disney teamed up with PANDORA Jewelry, the Tinker Bell Half Marathon Weekend presenting sponsor, to design this stunning half marathon medal for 2017.
David Brotherton, Art Director at Disney Yellow Shoes, was the lead designer who collaborated with PANDORA Jewelry to create this beautiful medal. He’s been designing runDisney medals for the past six years, but this is one of his favorites! David and the designers at PANDORA collaborated through meetings to each design elements of the medal that stayed true to their respective brands.
“It was important to keep the aesthetics of PANDORA, while also paying tribute to Tinker Bell,” explained Brotherton.
Graphic artists Kim Schnell and Greta Roy from PANDORA agreed by saying, “Collaborating with Yellow Shoes was a wonderful experience. David’s expertise with medal design was immeasurable and sparked a truly creative partnership with PANDORA. Seeing our combined ideas converge and come to life was awe-inspiring and we can’t wait to do it again!”
