Do you like badges? Because Londonist really does like a badge or two, after all, what's not to like? They're cheap, they're easily adaptable, they can be purely decorative or they can carry a message.

In fact, the only way you can go wrong with badges is if you cover a whole jacket with your collection...then you just look like a freak.

Anyway, when Londonist wants a new badge we more often than not visit Wear it With Pride.com first. WIWP is badge central, whether it's trendy/modern you're after or the more retro look that appeals.

Now WIWP have decided to branch out and have asked over 30 of their arty, designer mates to take their talents to vinyl. So each person was asked to take an old 12" record that was personal to them and decorate it in whatever way they saw fit (the one in the picture was designed by hellobard).

Later this month WIWP will be putting all the submissions together in an exhibition to be held at Phonica records on Poland Street (it's their second birthday party this weekend if you're interested).

You can view all the details of the exhibition here, and even try and bag an invite to the launch party on the 29th. Londonist will be there, camera in hand, so if you can't make it rest assured we'll let you know how it goes.
