How do I design an Award with Classic Badge Designer? Administration | Awards

You can use the Badge Designer to create an award out of existing components. You can also use images on your computer. You can access the Badge Designer by clicking Create your own award image when creating an award, or go directly to https://www.openbadges.me/designer.html.

  1. Enter your e-mail address.
  2. Click Submit.
  1. You will see six different components you can add to your award.
    • Curved text: text shaped like an arch.
    • Badge text: straight text.
    • Banners: add a banner.
    • Icons: add an icon.
    • Inner shapes: add a simple shape.
    • Shapes: add a shape that will be the main shape of your award.
  2. The bar below the name of the component will provide you with several options:
    • Use Curved text to change the color of the text, the shape of the arch, the font, the style and the size of the text.
    • Use Badge text to change the color of the text, the font, the style and the size of the text.
    • Use Banners, Icons, Inner shapes and Shapes to switch between the tabs and see more shapes. Note that the icon of a circle with a bar will remove the shape you used for your award.
    • Use Icons and Shapes to select a file from your computer (Select file) to use in your award.
  3. Use the arrows and the bars to navigate between the different subjects or to move components in your award. (Not all functions are available for each component):
    • Click on the arrows to move a component up or down.
    • Bar with the square icon: Move the square across the bar to make the component more or less transparent.
    • Bar with vertical arrows: move the square across the bar to move the component up or down.
    • Bar with horizontal arrows: move the square across the bar to move the component to the left or right.
  4. On the right you will see what your award currently looks like. If you add or change something, you can immediately see the changes here.
