• Super Mayor: "A special shoutout for holding down 10 mayorships at once!"
  • Local: "You've been at the same place 3x in one week!"
    I particularly like the design and the flag in this one.
  • Crunked: "That's 4+ stops in one night for you!"

    I love the colors that Mari put on this one. The threads are shiny, so the colors are a little brighter or darker depending on which way the light is facing.

Foursquare Nerd Merit Badges!!!

Newer Older

I *love* how these badges turned out. This is how they come from the embroiderer, stuck back-to-back like oreos.

I especially like the color combinations that Foursquare's designer Mari Sheibley put together. Trying to match those intense tones in thread was a challenge, but after lots of squinting at a thread card, I think we got it.

These are prototypes; I haven't yet talked to Dennis Crowley or the Foursquare folks about if, when, or how, these would actually be made available. I'll update this page here when I know. If you'd like to see other badges made (douchebag?) you can comment here.

You can see our other nerd merit badges over at www.nerdmeritbadges.com.

    Gym rat would be a great nerd badge for a gym bag. Like secret code for geeks among meatheads at the gym.

    Now we need Foursquare sashes to stitch them to.

    On further thought I have a jacket with a bunch of fake-wear holes I'd like to patch over.
