Imagine bringing your childhood obsession or your favorite cartoon to life in pin form, and then having it sold as an exclusive, limited-edition collectible at San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) to thousands of adoring fans. That’s what happened when Nickelodeon Animation artists based out of the Burbank, California studio competed in the office’s first-ever SDCC Enamel Pin Design Contest.
From art directors to production coordinators to interns, Nickelodeon animation artists created and submitted more than 100 designs for vibrant enamel pins to be sold at Nickelodeon’s popular booth on the SDCC show floor.
Here are the six winners whose designs Nick selected for manufacturing:
Morgan Bell, Production Assistant, Shimmer and Shine
Cynthia Avila, Production Coordinator, Rise of the Teenaged Mutant Ninja Turtles
Rachel Forman, Script Coordinator, Shimmer and Shine
Colton Davis, Production Assistant, SpongeBob SquarePants
Kate Coffey, 3D Environmental Artist, Amusement Park
Samantha Armiger, Production Assistant, Nickelodeon Animation Culture and Digital Community
