Swancon 95 membership badge for Doug Burbidge

Swancon 95, the twentieth Swancon, and the first one I’ve written about here that doesn’t have a page on the SF wiki. Feel free to go and create a page, after you have wrestled with the following thorny question: should the page be called “Swancon 95” or “Swancon 20”? (We originally elected to go with “95” so that people who hadn’t been to the first 19 wouldn’t feel like they couldn’t come.)

Logo by Jay Stratton.  Turn it sideways and it’s a face.

The Sheraton (now the Pan-Pac) was the venue; Pat Cadigan and Ellen Datlow (Ellen returned this year!) were the guests.

Nice high-readability font; nice high contrast between paper and toner. Preferred name in larger font. I’d like to claim credit for all this, but I don’t know if it was by luck or by design — I don’t even know if it was me that printed these badges. I’m guessing either me or Michael Deegan.

About australian sf-history

ASFDAP was set up in 2011 after the rediscovery by the wider SF community of an impressive hoard of Australian SF community related ephemera, fanzines and other materials in the Murdoch University basement.
