Project Description


Design a badge based on a made up gang / club / crew in your hometown.

Keep it simple, use type and shape to create a balanced piece that even your mum will like!.
Don't worry about it being perfect just take action and share what you can do.


Upload your sketches, inspiration and final design into the project section.
I'd love to see your process and final badge design. 

  • Sketch at least 3 badge designs
  • Upload final design 
  • Share your project 


I've attached some files and links to help you along the process.
