THE NEW “STAY COOL” ENAMEL PIN

stay-cool-pin-titleI was getting the itch to design a new enamel pin, and HERE IT IS! I’m pretty obsessed with it to be honest! It is such a fun design that is so opposite from my first design of The BOSS Lapel Pin.

I was really inspired by vintage neon signage for this pin. The fun, bright colors combined with smaller illustrative accents make it such a unique design for a piece of flair that is also filled with lots of character. The BOSS Pin is a hard enamel design ( the entire surface is smooth to the touch), while this new design is a soft enamel pin. The color is filled in, but not all the way to the top of the metal, producing a more 3-dimensional look.

Big thank you’s to my sweet friends who helped me out while I was concepting this. Shelby, Megan, Erin, Shannon, and Heather: your open ears and feedback are SO APPRECIATED! THANK YOU all! And also to Valley Cruise Press for making this design come to life. I kind of can’t get over how amazing they did!
