GiantMouse Knives is an American knife brand, with all products designed by two highly regarded knife designers / makers in Denmark. “Danish Design, American Spirit” has been tossed around within the management team. The designers' names are Jens Ansø "ANSØ" and Jesper Voxnaes "VOX", who both started making knives in 1989. Their names ANSO and VOX are very well known among knife collectors as they are two of the top knife designers in the world.
One purpose of the coin is to recognize our customers and their support and commitment to GiantMouse Knives. We have previously produced a patch and stickers from a design contest here at 99Designs for our customers (see the “Shank Sharpeners Union” image attached). Other images attached are our standard GiantMouse logo and our “Pirate” version of the logo.
Our target audience are members of what we call the EDC (every day carry) community, who love badass looking small metal objects that they can carry or display for photos of their collections (knives, watches, flashlights, pocket tops, pocket tools / carabiners, bottle openers, etc.). So, we are looking for some very cool, badass designs for this coin.
PLEASE NOTE: We do not want "EDC" or "EDC Community" to appear anywhere on the coin.
Our website is http://www.giantmouse.com where you can see images of our products and get an idea of some of the graphics we have used to date.
PLEASE NOTE: We do not want our website URL to appear anywhere on the coin.
We discussed having one side of the coin being specific to the Shank Sharpeners Union and the flip side being more generic to the GiantMouse branding - Danish Design - American Spirit - ANSØ - VOX. But of course we are interested in seeing your creative ideas on what would make for a super cool challenge coin for our customers.
