The backgound wave pattern reminds me of Vancouver. And not in a nice "Look! It's a homage" kinda way.

Yes, in the realm of Olympic design, Vancouver has a monopoly on wavy lines. So wavy lines are off-limits to anyone but Vancouver.

Anyway, this design isn't horrible. But what I don't like is the constant use of that same figure to represent "youth" in general. It's soooo tried.

Does remind me a lot of Vancouver 2010 medals...

Maybe it'll look a lot better in real physical form than the computer render now? What about the back anyone what it looks like?

lol, that fist gave the medal a communist feel.

I don't like the chosen medal. Pretentious, uncreative, unimaginative, unispiring.

The culmination of a truly non-descript graphics program for a non-descript olympic games for the youth.

I also made a youtube video to promote my medal design just a year ago.

Fatih, Interesting video. Good try but question: after 1924, why did you put the SOGs first and THEN the WOGs (of the same year)? Chronologically, the WOGs occurred first in those Olympic/leap years BEFORE the SOGs. Something like that lessnes the credibility of your work. Maybe next time.
