Nickelodeon Artists Pin their San Diego Comic-Con Dreams to Life | SDCC | NickSDCC

Imagine bringing your childhood obsession or your favorite cartoon to life in pin form, and then having it sold as an exclusive, limited-edition collectible at San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) to thousands of adoring fans. That’s what happened when Nickelodeon Animation artists based out of the Burbank, California studio competed in the office’s first-ever SDCC Enamel Pin Design Contest!

From art directors to production coordinators to interns, Nickelodeon animation artists created and submitted more than 100 designs for vibrant enamel pins to be sold at Nickelodeon’s popular booth on the SDCC show floor.

Featuring pin designs by Nickelodeon employees Morgan Bell, Cynthia Avila, Rachel Forman, Colton Davis, Kate Coffey and Samantha Armiger.

Here are the six winners whose designs Nick selected for manufacturing:

Morgan Bell, Production Assistant, Shimmer and Shine

Cynthia Avila, Production Coordinator, Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Rachel Forman, Script Coordinator, Shimmer and Shine

Colton Davis, Production Assistant, SpongeBob SquarePants

Kate Coffey, 3D Environmental Artist, Amusement Park

Samantha Armiger, Production Assistant, Nickelodeon Animation Culture and Digital Community

See each winning pin below:

A Double Dare-themed pin designed by Rachel Forman, script coordinator, Shimmer and Shine.

A Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles pin, designed by Cynthia Avila, production coordinator, Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

Samantha Armiger, production assistant, Nickelodeon Animation Culture and Digital Community, designed this Ace Savvy pin inspired by The Loud House.

Kate Coffey, 3D environmental artist, Amusement Park, designed this Rugrats-themed pin.

Morgan Bell, production assistant, Shimmer and Shine, created an INVADER ZIM-themed pin.

Colton Davis, Production Assistant, SpongeBob SquarePants designed this pin featuring Patrick from SpongeBob SquarePants.

The designs focused on six Nick properties that would be featured at this year’s SDCC booth and activations: Rugrats, Double Dare, INVADER ZIM, SpongeBob SquarePants, The Loud House, and Nickelodeon’s newest series, Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, the first episode of which will debut following this Friday's Kids’ Choice Sports awards at 9:30pm ET/PT.

“Nickelodeon wanted to celebrate these iconic properties in a fun and creative way at SDCC,” said Armiger. “The contest gave employees the opportunity be part of the artistic process for a massive tentpole event. It was a great way for Nickelodeon employees to showcase our talents to our peers.”

Nickelodeon will only produce 250 of each pin and will sell them exclusively at the Nickelodeon SDCC booth, where they will be displayed alongside a photo and bio of each designer. Make sure to stop by and see them if you’re there…and grab one while you still can.

Along with the one-of-a-kind pins, Nickelodeon’s booth will have a host of branded collectibles to stock up on: Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles figurines of Raph, Leo, Donnie and Mikey; a vibrant Lisa Frank Spongebob Pouch; a Hey Arnold! Helga Bobblehead and more.

And Comedy Central is celebrating South Park's 22nd season (set to premiere this fall) at CCSD with “Cartman’s Escape Room” and other South Park activations, including a “Member Berries Challenge,” letting fans of the iconic cartoon get up close and personal with the characters of the beloved show (which happens to be cable’s longest-running primetime scripted series).

San Diego Comic-Con 2018 will be held July 19-22 at the San Diego Convention Center.
