“Chafing the Dream” Magnet Design

By March 24, 2015March 16th, 2016Blog, Graphic Design

With the Ragnar Relay Race coming up in SoCal to Huntington to San Diego, we had a client approach us with a very fun idea! She wanted to make magnets that she could stick on other racing team vans as her team passed by. What a fun way to make their mark on the race!

Read a little bit about the race here:

“Ragnar Relay So Cal is one of our most popular races in the series for a big reason – the course is spectacular! Kicking things off in Huntington Beach, you’ll Run, Drive, Sleep(?), Repeat under the California sunshine, beneath the stars at night, and over epic coastlines. Teams will finish and party Ragnar-style after conquering the nearly 200 mile course at our finish line party in San Diego. This race is also part of our Double Medal Series. Run Ragnar Relay So Cal and Ragnar Relay Napa Valley in the same year, and you’ll walk away with one huge chunk of gold around your neck – The Gold Rush Medal! The ocean breeze in your hair, the sun on your shoulders, and your friends at your side at the finish line. What could be better?”


We started with an idea of using old black and white photos of miss Americas or runners in the 1950s. We were able to find this great photo in the common creative photos on Google:



This was PERFECT! So we used the photo and ended up with this design below for the running team:
