Good ideas so far.

You are welcome but the badge still needs a lot of work (atleast IMHO) .

Some ideas to improve (perhaps) :-

a. The badge size is much too large horizontally. See if you can
shorten it or do it in two lines so the height becomes a bit more.

b. Make an .svg file so people can pan it out without breaking the
pixels (or artefacts) to see how it is.

c. The shadow could be a bit more pronounced (the image is too small
to really know whether there is a shadow or its my imagination)

Hope I was not too hard on your first attempt.


Something to inspire you
