Designing A New Pin Badge

After having the great luck of winning a Made By Cooper competition to have 100 pins made in my own design I have had the added luck of selling them to people who like them as much as I do. It’s not often that exciting things like that happen. So now I’m hoping that other people will like my new idea and design too. Can you help me?

I read a great blog by Mail Chimp What’s In Store the other day about what happens if you don’t product test. You can read it here.

I think it can be easy to want to keep your ideas secret when there are big brands out there ready to steal them, reproduce them badly and make money off something they didn’t even have the creativity to think up for themselves. But how do I know if anybody likes my ideas or would buy them if I don’t check in with them first. So that is what I’m doing now.

This is my idea for a new pin, in three different colour ways. Please comment below and let me know which you like the best and if you’d buy a pin for collage lovers! Thank you, in advance! xxx

  1. Hey Jess!

    Great news to hear you’re a winner – and loving these pin designs. My fav is design 3. I am a lover of purple in general, but I think that it has the right amount of contrast to stand out with the green, but not too much so you can wear it with any outfit, on any lapel! I’d wear it!!

    Here’s to the Makers!

  2. I, too, prefer design 3 from a purely subjective viewpoint, i.e. as a wearer of purple accessories, and I love the contrast of the green (pistachio ice-cream?). These colours would definitely work for most wearers.
