CONvergence is IMMINENT! Like, it’s TOMORROW!
The CONvergence 2011 theme was Tomrrow Through the Past, not just a celebration of steampunk, but of all things retro-futuristic and of yesterday’s visions of tomorrow!
Did you have a better time at CONvergence 2011 than some other years? Did it feel like a better experience? A better convention as a whole? It probably did, and it was because of how cohesive my badge design work was that year. Search your feelings. You know it to be true. Oh, that’s AstroBoy, Iron Giant, and the Rocketeer from left to right.
And that’s a steampunk cutaway Connie schematic on the Adult badge.
That’s K-9 on the Service Animal Badge and the Party Badge which was new that year. We asked Party Hosts to badge parties in 2011, and as a trade off Party Hosts were allowed a certain number of Party Staff who could come in to help using these badges.
I used the Connie-in-the-Metropolis-Chair image which had proved to be quite popular that year on the Convention Committee Badge.
The Temp Badges were obviously a variation on the same design as the Party Badges. Again there was a color-coded variant for each day so the badges would “expire” after 24-hours when given out to performers and professional panelists.
If you couldn’t fathom based on Thursday through Saturday what the Sunday Temp Badge might have looked like…
…now you know.
