National Park Badge Hunting


National Park Badge Hunting

Badge work that honors the National Park Service's Centennial milestone.

As part of a Letter Society project, the prompt was to get inspired by Allan Peter’s badge exploration and make some of my own.

A Breath of Fresh Air

After chatting with a friend one evening over dinner, it was brought to my attention that 2016 is the 100 year anniversary of the National Park Service (although its being celebrated over the course of 2015-2016). So, I decided to do some badge-work that honored this awesome milestone.


Gone Huntin'

I created 4 badges all centered around the same ‘100’ type. I wanted to make the badges look distinct but have a consistent, hearty color palette that would tie them all together as well as incorporate a feeling of adventure and nature. I was experimenting with the design elements actually containing themselves without the use of a border.
