Latino-Owned Business Badge​​​​​​​
Google and the United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce partnered to create a Latino-owned attribute in Search, Maps and Shopping. The badge reflected culture heritage with a new tech feature that was unveiled on social media and brought to life by Google Brand Studio with visuals representing the vivid bordados found in Latin America.

The history of bordados is one with a lot of personal significance for me. Growing up, I would sit at the kitchen table with my grandmother as she prepped many embroidered pieces. I would sketch flowers onto the clothes (or as we called them, manteles) using a #2 pencil to create outlines for her embroidered patterns. Our digital badge explorations tapped into this process by incorporating stitches and sketch-like outlines. During the exploration phase, I also hand-stitched bordado, as my grandmother and I once did, to explore a handmade look.
