Here's the "Badge" design with finishing effects, including a couple of closeups. Each component of the badge has been individually metallized, embossed, shadowed and in some cases, textured. The back part of the badge has a brushed texture that helps highlight the elements that lie over it. The banners and the blue central element have a subtle mottled texture, which adds interest but doesn't interfere with the overall polished look of the badge. All the lettering has darker outlines or shadows which enhance readability, particularly at a distance.
