walmart Conference Badge
Every year the top Walmart performers from every country are invited to the Walmart convention in Arkansas. As part of Walmart's tradition, everyone is asked to bring pins that represent their country, and throughout the convention encouraged to trade pins amongst their peers. Trading pins is a nice ice-breaker and also a conversation starter.
A couple of my designs were selected to represent team Africa. The African-map pin has 54 loops to represent the 54 African countries, and is woven in the center to represent unity. The gumboot pin symbolizes the South African gumboot traditional dancing with a zebra-pattern flare to add a bit of glam.
My pins have also been turned into magnets, and they can be purchased at the shop next to customs at Johannesburg’s international airport, O.R. TAMBO.
