Each year, a special gift is presented to individual teammates of the Portland Thorns by Rose City Riveters. This year’s gift was particularly exceptional.
Player Gift: Coins designed by Riveters Matt and Hannah, and created by ADX Portland.
All work was done by the Makers Collective at ADX Portland. The coins’ imagery and wording were designed by Riveters Matt and Hannah, which was laser etched into rosewood rounds from a 25 y/o rose bush native to North Portland. The boxes are Douglas Fir, aged 10 years and seasoned for five.
The Riveter crest on top is silk screen printed with a gold and gunpowder grey ink finish, and the message inside the lid is one of unity with the players and the club. The top and bottom are held together by magnets, and the rosewood coin rests in a black, felt-lined setting.
Hope you enjoyed this little peek at just one of many small facets of Rose City Riveters support. Thank you to those, named and unnamed, who contributed their time and talent to this worthy project.
