Hacker Trophies

I was commissioned by MIT to come up with some trophies for a Hacker Tournament taking place in October....very cool : )
The theme for the tournament was "grungy industrial" & this is what we came up with :)   The base of the trophies is based on the glider emblem; with the circles cut from different layers of metal; depending on the award; the 1st place being the most intricate, 2nd a bit simpler, etc....

We used the tournament logo on the plaques & incorporated the colors of the logo in the colored window; it's actually a piece of  polished aluminum with transparent auto paint layered over to mimic the gradient color in the MIT Hack logo.  Love the contrast against the rusty steel!

 I hope they like them as much as I do!
Loving the color contrast with the blue/green :)
