Hi there, everyone! Are you guys having a nice time reading our blogs? We hope that you are and that you are also making the most of them for your personal and professional projects. For our today’s blog, we are going to be talking about vintage badge designs and how you can create them after having a look at this stunning collection of the very design ideas created by David Sierra who is a Spanish designer and illustrator.

First things first; let’s get to know David Sierra for a better understanding of the design project that he worked on in 2023 for AFAR Magazine. So, AFAR Magazine is a print and digital publication based in San Francisco, California. The publication was founded in 2009 and it focuses on experiential travel and to make travel a force for good. David Sierra collaborated with the publication in 2023 to create 12 illustrations for their article titled “Where to Go in 2023”. The article talked about the 12 interesting and beautiful destinations that must be visited in 2023. By helping the readers and travellers make informed decisions, both the publication and the illustrator did their part and now it was on the readers, etc. to get to those destinations with their loved ones to make the most of 2023.

What we liked the most about this collection of full-of-life and attractive vintage badge designs was that David incorporated the format of old travel stickers. And the results were more than just amazing mainly because he was able to take readers back to the good old times when things used to be simpler and life was too, a little easier to live, you know. Also, not to forget the elements of nostalgia and adventure attached to the 12 destinations are unmatched. Allow us to share the names of the destinations that were covered by David in the form of his lively illustrations:
