Cyberspace Building Crew
Cool embroidered patches for internet workers
The patches are approximately 8 cm (~3,15in) wide, made in France with a very tight top of the range embroidery stitch. The back of the patch is coated with iron-on material for easy application to fabric. It is still possible to sew them.
All patches are sent with a stamped and embossed mission order.
The stickers are approximately 5.5 cm (~2,16in) wide, and withstand exposure from rain, snow, sunlight and more. Stickers are printed on premium vinyl with a permanent adhesive and are coated with a protective laminate that makes them durable and resistant to fading, scratching, tearing, and water.
All stickers are sent with a stamped and embossed mission order.
About the project
At the 2017 Paris Web conference on accessibility and design with Aurélien Levy, we used the metaphor of the conquest of space and the USA/USSR agreement to illustrate our point. For the conclusion of our slides, I drew 3 patches to represent design and accessibility as space missions.
At the same time, I asked who would eventually be interested in producing these patches, and the proposal met with some success. As soon as I had some time for this new side project, I got down to work, drawing a total of 14 patches covering most of the Internet jobs.
The Cyberspace Building Crew was born.
I then launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise the necessary funds to carry out the project.
This campaign was a success, the initial target was crushed in 3 hours and surpassed by more than 700% at the end of the campaign.
We have sent patches to many contributors around the world, and we are now launching this shop so that those who missed the campaign can buy the badges and stickers of the web workers!
