Here's the original version of the vector badge Mr. Nick Slater worked up for me the other day. I'm hoping to get his version done with some letterpress on new business cards in the coming weeks so he had to simplify some of the shading and superfluous burst lines. Nick's the man, and you should hire him for things because (to reiterate) his work will probably do this to you.

no disrespect to Nick, he's a virtuoso, but I think I'd rather see this version on your business card. your handcrafted style is lost for me on his style of execution. i don't think it "cheapens" it by any means, but it doesn't scream your body of work to me.
I agree with @Jason Carter. This definitely fits you better.
Both versions obviously kill, destroy and maim but I'm with @Jason Carter and @Cameron Latham
There it is! Looks dope
I kind of like that @Nick Slater did this in his style though. It looks awesome in both. I can see where you're going with having a different aesthetic for it.
yup, i'm obviously a huge fan of both of you, and think both versions are awesome. But I just feel like something I'm going to have on my own business card should be made by me. Plus the top says 'hand crafted work'. I think that matches the inked version better.
This is pretty awesome, love the stipple shading!
@Jason Carter - I totally get what you're saying, but I've had stuff done via letterpress in the past that had a "rough" look and the result was nowhere near as nice as crisp vectors are. I get that it's not quite "me", but I feel the final result will be much superior.
@Nathan Trafford - Well, it's still technically made by me, I did provide the original design which he didn't stray from too much, he just made it more suitable for the format of print I'm looking to use it for.
Both of your work always stun me. You two have each uniqueness and always resulting high quality art craft in each style. Keep inspiring man!! :D
you are in good hands, Jason !
