We're looking for a designer to create 12 badges in this round for use in our Alpha testing. The awards we hope to create should be simple in style, and work with a color palette and general design sense we've already approved.
We would like to find a designer we can continue to work with to create many, many more award badges as we grow and expand the scope of our product.
Each badge would preferably be a vector image and look good at at 50px * 50px size.
We'd prefer a square background with rounded corners and an inside border to the squares. We like some highlights, but not necessarily super-glossy, and prefer to stay away from anything too cartoony/too colorful.
Using a limited number of colors in each badge is probably good, with highlights that work in our color scheme are great. We should also keep them all on a consistent background, though if you choose to put a stroke around the box, it might be good to vary that perhaps according to level of award (something akin to bronze, silver, gold, etc.).
