4/28/11 A shield study
Awhile back we decided to separate foursquare core badges with branded badges. We needed a new shape for the branded badges. After a thorough exploration we landed on this shape, but I became enamored with shield shapes in general. I love icons and there’s something really lovely about shields and the variety in which they come. I’ve continued my exploration of badges looking at different shield shaping.

In light of the historic news that just took place in New York State, we thought we’d share a historic photo from our collection of the first demonstration for marriage equality in New York State way back in 1971. Jim Owles from the Gay Activist Alliance is pictured next to a wedding cake at the city clerk’s office in the photo by Richard Wandel. The image is from the International Gay Information Center Collection of the Library’s Manuscripts and Archives Division. For more info on the Library’s LGBT collections check out the division’s blog.
