    @Allan Grinshtein Nice badges.. I'll like to point out that the icons on the site don't display properly in Firefox.

    @Ernest Ojeh I'm going to push out a few changes tonight after dinner to fix that. Firefox is lackluster when it comes to SVG rendering, unfortunately.

    The typography icon makes me think about TechCrunch. Otherwise, all are very sweet.

    The badges are very good, I like the art direction very much. My 2 cents: even though the "T" is technically centred in its disk, the dark green projection makes it look unbalanced. I'm not sure about the dribbble icon being yellow, but i *really* like the fact that it's actually carved out where it should be.

    The amount of flat these icons have is astoundingly awesome.

    Sent you an email a few days ago about an invite, but I figured you just had a backlog of excited invitees!

    @Asher Simonds for some reason, some requests keep getting caught in my spam filter. I'll reply now.

    I think the badges are really nicely designed but a real distraction on the site. I like the sweet find idea but more subtle and inline with the minimal look

    These are terrific, i’m a big fan of the style and colour palette. I find icon design pretty hard and often rely on the tried and tested language. What I like about these is that they're unique in content and full of character and still subscribe to the brand aesthetic.

    These are looking good but I'm not sure about the colour of the apple and dribbble icon. It might just be me, but I think by having the apple icon in red it could get confused for a tomato, more so when you consider the shape of the icon. I also think the yellow of the dribbble icon is a bit too similar to "sweet find". I would probably go with an orange or pink just to make it even more distinguishable.

    Great work on Designer News by the way!

    Nice badges ! I love Designer News.
    Why don't keep the pink color for Dribbble posts ?

    These are great, but you're wrong to use a tennis ball for Dribbble. It would be like using an orange for Apple related posts. It should be a basketball or it makes no sense, and probably pink.

    I think it's actually a basketball, I have no problem with the color though I'm not sure if it relates to Dribbble.

    Agree with calls to make Dribbble badge a pink basketball. Unlike the Apple badge, which is delightful once you realize it marks posts about Apple computers, the Dribbble badge is just confusing.

    Speaking of the Apple badge, what about taking a bit from it?
