Daily Planet Press Badge

My little sister asked me to add her photo into a press badge for the Daily Planet as part of a Lois Lane costume. I of course took that to mean "re-create a vector template of the press badge from Smallville, bro". And it was surprisingly easier than expected ... thanks in no small part the early 2000's style graphics involved.

The actually Daily Planet globe vector came from the great Brands of the World repository, while the logotype lettering is set in Old English Text. I got as close as I could for the rest, using Commador Normal, Times New Roman and Helvetica Neue to round out the other text elements. Photos of Tom Welling and Erica Durance are courtesy of Google and those wonderful years of Smallville.

So for you all to enjoy, here's the Adobe Illustrator template. Feel free to swap out the photos with your own and start the presses!
