I noticed that LinkedIn began placing an “Influencer” icon/badge next to a person’s name on the news feed. I think it’s a great idea, but the design could use a little improvement–it looks like it was created using MS Paint. The icon/badge suffers from poor alignment and the use of a font that neither matches the icon nor the pages typography. Here’s my take on improving the icon/badge–below is a side-by-side composite showing current badge versus my design. Thoughts?
