Over at Conferences That Work, our friend and industry expert Adrian Segar has a long diatribe as well as pithy resources about what makes a nametag work.
Most events have nametags, except for the fanciest of galas and the most casual of shindigs. And nametag designs can range from useful to useless, from simple to sophisticated, and everywhere in between. Adrian breaks down size, shape, content, font size, layout, and supplies. We keep this post as a handy reference when clients want help making a decision about what to do for their designs. read Adrian’s post, Anatomy of a Name Badge.
Like what Adrian has to say? You can find him on twitter at @ASegar, and he’s written one of my absolute favorite books on planning effective, meaningful conferences, which you can find on his site.
