CONvergence Badge Art: #CVG2005

I’m counting down to CONvergence 2012 on July 5-8 this year, and sharing some highlights from past year’s badge art that I’ve done for the convention.

In addition to the Guest of Honor badges like those I posted yesterday, I’ve also done most of the registration badges over the years. These are the badges that actually get you past our badging stations and give you access to Programming, ConSuite, and the other amenities of the convention.

We have different badges for different age ranges of attendees, and I try to give each badge it’s own distinctive color scheme, so they are distinguishable at a glance even from a distance. I also need to allow room in the design for individual badge names and numbers to be superimposed.

#CVG2005 - ConCom Badge

#CVG2005 – ConCom Badge

The 2005 theme was Superheroes – which you can see by all the badges here. This badge was designated members of the Convention Committee, and was individualized with each ConCom member’s name and title.

#CVG2005 - Finance on Duty

#CVG2005 – Finance on Duty

Our Finance people handle the money that flows in and out of the convention over the weekend, and they get their own badges, too. Bruce Wayne seemed like an appropriate art choice for the year’s theme.

Some people who aren’t paid members of the convention still need access for a few hours, like musicians and other performers appearing at the con. This is what they got for badge art in 2005.

If you’re coming to #CVG2012 be sure to look me up! I’ll be doing two signings and on a bunch of panels.
