The Design of Conference Badges

I’ve been to a lot of conferences in the last couple of years. Without exception, every one of them has had a badge that is either ugly or useless or, in most cases, both.

So when UX Australia announced their badge design competition, I just had to jump on it.

Badge Design for UX AustraliaTo make the best badge possible, I decided to share my rough designs on Flickr and get your feedback. The first version went up yesterday and plenty of people left helpful comments, so today I threw together a revised version.

Please do me a favour and click here to see the latest version, and leave a comment on Flickr. It’d also be lovely if you would post a link to Twitter and help me get more feedback. Thanks!
