Big Red Gives 250 Lucky Fans a Chance to Win Coveted Fiesta Medal Designed by SA Artist
Big Red gives 250 lucky fans a chance to win their 2018 Fiesta medal designed by Randi Gilmore a San Antonio based graphic designer by entering the Big Red Fiesta Medal Contest that ends April 10.
Big Red, America’s original and best-selling red soda, announced today that 250 lucky fans will have an opportunity to win a Big Red Fiesta medal from now through April 10th, by submitting an entry at www.bigred.com/fiesta. Big Red conducted an online contest that invited local artists to submit designs for the 2018 Fiesta medal. Fans voted online for their favorite medal, awarding Randi Gilmore’s San Antonio’s Fiesta Flavor Medal as the winner. Randi is a San Antonio based graphic designer, and a long-time fan of Big Red.
Describing her design, Randi says “Big Red and Tacos. Name a more iconic duo! San Antonio will be celebrating its 300th birthday in 2018, and I wanted my medal design to show iconic landmarks in San Antonio, while also highlighting Big Red as a brand. I used bright colors for that ‘Fiesta flare,’ and the metal plating is black to make the design bold!”
Big Red sought fun and unique interpretations of San Antonio’s culture and Fiesta’s celebratory atmosphere.
“San Antonian’s have always embraced Big Red, and we are honored to be ingrained in the unique culture of the city,” says Thomas Oh, SVP of marketing for Big Red. “Randi’s design perfectly encompasses what Big Red and San Antonio are all about.”
