While we're still deciding on what info will be on badges, I've started working on designs. I really like the direction T-shirt design is going, especially flower motives. For the name I took the longest one I could find from registered participants list.

Some thoughts: we can have different colored stickers for different food preferences - like these https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/51U2iwVr7LL._AC_UL320_SR248,320_.jpg.
Probably we can indicate statuses like: volunteer, organizer, speaker, guest.
Some people have entered phrases in field 'Badge' when registering. Where should that go?
Last year back of the badge had useful info and phone numbers.

Thoughts?

Ooh these look wonderful! I think the sticker idea makes sense too.

Usually the phrase goes directly under their name (and a lot of people fill it out with their IRC nick)

Here's the badges I was able to find and take photos of - I couldn't find the flock one :(

Great! Here's my humble collection and also a pic of Flock badge 2014 I found on riecatnor's blog http://imgur.com/a/7E68O

I got rid of the flower outlines and added outline to rectangle under name, also made it bigger. The back of the badge can be different colors for organizer, speaker, attendee. Also based on the discussion in mailing list I suggest we leave the sched.org link, irc-help and flock website. Considering food preferences I still think colored stickers are a good idea.

Would love to hear your feedback!

UPD updated the mock-up a little bit - the flowers and arrangement. For the lanyard itself I'm thinking Fedora dark blue with Fedora / Flock logos.

These look beautiful :) Love the design!

So I think based on the thread and some planning discussions we don't need to worry about the food preferences stuff; the hotel is going to handle that and likely won't need it on the badges (and we can do the stickers if needed.)

I'll check on list to make sure we have the data in the attendee list about who is speaker vs organizer vs attendee. (I know we have speaker vs attendee but i don't know how wide the team of 'organizers' is going to be considered, if that makes sense.)

Do you think we should have the wifi info too? Bex is working on getting that.

Thank you!

Sounds great! I think stickers should be enough.

Ok, absolutely.

It depends: we can either have it on badges or there might be posters all over the venue, or both. Maybe on brochure cover, too?

Let's drop the wifi idea and move forward with this.

Maria, can you prep for print (will need CMYK) using Scribus and upload your SVG and SLA sources (might be able to use them another year with a different artwork.) Then upload the PDFs for the printer too of course.

I'll make up the spreadsheet with the attendee data for the vendor and send to you and Kveta.
