Two sides of a 39mm in diameter coin. I designed a "Carpe Diem" coin a few years ago with 3D modeling software, and have had the coins 3D printed in bronze steel by Shapeways (photos attached to this contest). While my coin design has been very popular with my friends and customers, it is quite crude or simple, so I would now like to have real graphic designers recreate my coin so that I can have it minted by an actual coin minting company.
I designed one side of the coin with an image of death (the skull), plus an image representing time (the escape wheel gear found in all mechanical clocks and watches), to drive the point home at a single glance. I would like to keep this image of a skull with a watch gear in the forehead, but would like it to be redone to be much more badass than I was able to achieve. Around the skull, I placed the words "Time Flies" (becomes more of a reality every day as I am now 51 years old, and "Death Waits" as a grim reminder that at the end of all your uncertain days alive, there is the certainty of death. I would like to have the latin words "TEMPUS FUGIT" and "MEMENTO MORI" placed around the skull instead, and in a super cool font like that used on an antique Ouija Board.
I would like for other side of the coin should say "Carpe Diem" in the center, which means "seize the day", and should say something around the edge in latin like "faciet enim vita tua incredibili" (make your life extraordinary).
