This week, we’re been working on creating badges for Grand St. Settlement’s summer day camp programming. The first edition of these badges were designed last year, and we’ve revamped the set with a new edition. The lightbulb represents a Change Maker, and is awarded to students that design projects and/or participate in acts of service that help make the world a better place. We always enjoy stretching our imaginations to come up with clever visual solutions to illustrate more abstract concepts, and we’re loving how this icon set turned out!
