National Park Badge Hunting

Project Brief

Inspired by Allan Peter’s badge exploration - we are going to make some our own. The number is up to you, but 3 seems to sound like a good number so we can see the systemic approach? …or a really, really kickass singular badge? Want to see him talk about his work - watch here :)

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.
