Artist and designer Carl Godfrey has launched pin badges in support of the NHS to raise money for trusts across the UK on the 70th anniversary of the health service.
The enamel pin badges read “NH-Yes” using the signature blue and white font italics of the health service. He says, "I’ve recently been using the NHS more than I’d like to. And every time I use the service I’m thankful for the care, generosity and support of the staff that make the NHS. So in return, I’ve made a badge. A badge for the nurses, doctors, patients and families. For anyone who’s ever used or contributed to our greatest asset. A badge to say ‘Yes’ to the NHS and long may it continue.”
Discussing his motives behind the project, he tells It’s Nice That, “I wanted to create a simple graphic that everyone could relate to and get behind, like little placards of support you can wear on your shirt. Realising any design from an idea into something physical is alway really exciting and I look forward to seeing people wear it”.
Godfrey has previously used the technique of pastiche in his work, and is currently exhibiting his Unaffordable Housing work, which reworks British road signs with a political edge, at the RA Summer Exhibition.
