Project Description

ASSIGNMENT

For this class, you will create a badge design for a city using Adobe Illustrator. Start off by showing anything that inspired you, whether it be a piece of typography, a logo, or another badge design. From there, upload any sketches you created along the way, as well as your design at various stages.  Explain your process so that we can all learn from you, as well as any background information to help us understand your piece. Finally, upload your final badge design so we can all marvel in its glory!

If you create a badge design that isn't for a city, still post it! We all want to see what you have made.
