What if there was an effortless way to let people know that you were a vegetarian, vegan, or even raw vegan?
An idea practically hit me over the head on Sunday: what if people could share their nutritional choice in a supportive, yet unobtrusive and attractive way? I wondered why anyone hadn’t tackled this design challenge before. I’d never seen anything like the idea in my head before. Thus, the Powered by Plants badge was born.
The basic design for the graphic was already in my head, but it would take graphic design skills and patience to create something attractive and versatile. I decided to follow the design style I started when I created the CommentLuv badge for Andy over at ComLuv.com, which is really excellent plugin for WordPress and other blogging platforms that encourages blog discussion. The difficult part was deciding on what kind of leaf to use. I experimented with lots of different leaves (including some kind of 7-pointed leaf, but something didn’t quite fit), so I eventually settled on a broad leaf you see below.
Spread the Word about your Conscious Choice
Whether you’re a macrobiotic eater, fruitarian, vegetarian, raw vegan, or normal vegan, these badges are a snazzy way to spread the word about your conscious nutritional choice. If you use one of the badges, I would very much appreciate you spread the love and link back to the Spread the Word page so that others can get a Powered by Plants badge that matches their own nutritional choice. Spread the word that, by making conscious nutritional decisions, we become healthier creators.
And if you have any questions or suggestions, please don’t hesitate to let me know in the comments below.
I have 2 vegetarian days per month, maybe I need a special badge? 🙂
Haha! Would you like a badge that says “Flexitarian”? I played with idea of making one of those.
Nice badges, thanks! 🙂
I thought about it, and I think I’m going to make a badge called “Powered By Bananas”– partially for Steve Pavlina, who loves bananas, and partially for all the other banana lovers out there. I’m seeing a yellow and black badge in my mind… what do you think?
you guys are nuts, but I absolutely love the ideas here. I’m actually certified, but you’ll find that out soon enough. luv the luv
Rita´s last blog post..admittedly . . . nuts
I love it. Being veg is tough enough. I did join some raw food support groups and we have great food and fun discussions. Maybe we’ll make some badges at our next MeetUp!
