I had a bunch of ideas for this project. Everything from hockey, hiking, to the city of Philadelphia.
I ultimately chose to create a set of badges based on historical buildings in Philadelphia. Architecture is a favorite subject of mine, and there are many great examples in this city. Instead of focusing on the newer buidlings and skyscrapers, i wanted to go back to their older buildings. There are so many different historical buildings, but i went with some of the more famous ones. These include city hall, independence hall, the union league, merchant's exchange, the art museum, the please touch museum, and the academy of music.
These are pretty crude drawings, but i want to keep these buildings simplified but still distinguishable.
these were badges i created last year for a project, i like the style, and i want to do something similar:
