New Look for GS History Project

With the 54th Girl Scout National Conference session convening this week in Columbus, OH, I decided to refresh the look and content of the Girl Scout History Project.

I’ve added links to my other website projects, an archive of Council’s Own badges and a new site with Cookie Patches and Prizes from the past.  In early 2018, the site will begin hosting an archive of Leader magazines, the product of a collaborative project among Girl Scout historians. (I’m hosting it temporarily; hopefully, GSUSA will take it over in the future.)

I’m excited to announce a new logo for the website, definitely the most fun part of the transformation:

GS History Project

Meet Digital Daisy!

“Digital Daisy” was designed by an Illustration major from the Savannah College of Art and Design, which gives the image an extra dose of Girl Scout history.

I’d hoped to have patches made to use as SWAPs at the convention, but time ran out. I do have some stickers and business cards.

Look for the Daisy tote bag!

I’m still not convinced “Digital Daisy” is the best nickname, so suggestions are welcome!

(And yes, I secured permission from GSUSA to use “GS” in the image.)

  1. What a great idea! But love your original look too. I can’t wait to explore all the new information you will have here. Thanks for the information and all the work you do for this page and your readers. 🙂

  2. Maybe it’s my computer, but does she have a mouth?  Maybe just a small one in pale rose color?  Was her hair that dark at age 50+?Just wondering. and a great job on the logo!Carol

    • No, she doesn’t have a mouth. We weren’t quite sure what her expression would be! Not sure about the hair color because she’s almost always wearing a hat in GS-era photos.
