Shining for India and Kabaddi
Designing trophies and medals for an international event is a big deal. So when we were tasked with such a responsibility recently, it pleased us no end. And so we request a few minutes of your precious time to tell you about this event. Perhaps something about the story will resonate with you and prompt you to give us the opportunity to work together on something equally prestigious.
The Kabaddi Masters Cup
The Kabaddi Masters Cup is a multi-nation event. This year, it was held in Dubai. We were bestowed the privilege of designing and crafting the trophy and medals for it.
This is the first time that Engrave has been called upon to put its design and manufacturing skills in the service of an event of this stature. How chuffed we were by this is hard to fully describe.
How did we respond?
For creative inspiration, we turned to the heart of Kabaddi. And it paid off handsomely.
The medals and the trophy were imbued with cues from a signature move in Kabaddi known as ‘The Raid’. So the six layers of the metal arcs symbolize the number of teams participating in the tournament, while the rod in the center with the logo represents the raider.
In addition, the intricate geometric design at the base defines how this ancient Indian sport is raiding and capturing the imagination in other countries around the world. We invite you to take a look at the aforementioned creations to better understand how we married the Kabaddi story to the merchandise.
