Project Description

Create A Custom Patch - And Potentially Win It!!

Although you may submit your project however you please, I have listed the steps and my project as an example. I look forward to seeing what you come up with!

MY PROJECT

Step 1: Your Favourite Reference Patches

I have put together my reference pins on a small pinterest board here.

Step 2: Your Favourite Apple Metal Patch

I'm not even a Star Wars fan really, but this is a pretty cool patch.

Step 3: Your Rough Sketches

Here are my initial rough sketches. For the Baseball Owl, I made that purely on the iPad Pro digitally, so I didn't have any preliminary sketches.

Step 4: Your Final Patch Design

My final vector patches. Using almost solely the Pen Tool, Shapes, and Pathfinder tools I was able to make these three patch designs with ease.

THEME IDEAS

I opted to not have a theme for this class. However, I know it can be difficult to come up with an idea for your project. So here are some ideas you could use.

  • Illustrate your favourite animal
  • Letter your favourite quote (must be simple since the pin is so small)
  • Draw a monogram of your initials
  • Illustrate a celebrity portrait
  • Illustrate a vehicle

GUIDELINES

In order to be eligible for the contest, you must keep your design to these specs.

  • Your patch must be a maximum of 3.5" tall or wide.
  • You patch MAY HAVE unlimited colours!
