I tried my hand at making a fake employee badges for S-Mart. Here are the results:
I made three kinds. A generic “Thanks for shopping” badge, a blank name tag and one filled out with “Ash Williams” on it. The design looks great, I’m very happy with the results.
I tried to make Ash’s name tag look like it was made with a label maker. I think I succeeded well. I cut the “s” from his last name in half and continued it on the department.
If I decide to redo the design, I would prefer the name badge to be more square. The “Employee/Department” shouldn’t crowd against the edge of the badge, I feel I should have left more room on each side for those elements. The label maker effect looks great. Maybe I’ll make a more sophisticated one with a picture of Ash on it. Make it look more official.
