Helping Up Mission

Challenge Coin Design

CD: Victor King


Helping Up Mission is a community dedicated to helping men and women fighting addiction and homelessness in Baltimore, Maryland. As a gift to graduates of their recovery programs they contacted me to design a challenge coin.


An oak tree was chosen as the central, symbolic, representation of long lasting growth in the design. Below are seen several sketches in which various solutions were explored. In the end, a scene of downtown Baltimore viewed from a popular park in the area was chosen as the backdrop for the design.
