Supporting State Parks Through Rad Design

Doing good has never looked as good as the Pennsylvania Patch Coalition. Patch Co., as the initiative is nicknamed, is Philly design student Caleb Heisey’s project to create iconic patches for all 120 of his home’s state parks, with patch sale profits going towards park preservation efforts. Over the next few months, Caleb will continue to train his design skills onto each of PA’s parks, while raising funds and awareness so he can produce the patches for sale.

“It takes a huge effort to maintain the usability of state parks, let alone the festivals and activities that make them so special,” Caleb writes on the Patch Co. site. “I began designing… in hopes that it would inspire both residents of PA and out-of-staters to visit parks and fall in love with the outdoors all over again.”

    These are So. Cool. Being from PA, I really love these! Especially since I’ve been to a couple of these places. Actually Greenwood Furnace is right near my college and my photography class went there to take pictures – tons of fun!

    Very intriguing mission! I would love to buy these for my family up in PA — grew up visiting so many of these parks. Practically lived at Shawnee State Park and Canoe Creek during the summers. These patches bring back lots of good memories. Thanks and love the designs!
