The Distinguished Octo-Aeronaut Society soft enamel pin is a cute companion in the style of vintage aviation medals and was created to inspire you to always pilot your own adventures!

This is the first Kickstarter campaign for Platypus on a Pillow, a studio started by a father (Mark) and his 3 artist children (Morgan, Madyson and Jackson) to allow us to collaborate and bring our creative projects to life. Each project will feature an original work from one of the team, this first project features Morgan's vintage style enamel pin that will induct you into The Distinguished Octo-Aeronaut Society.

Hello, my name is Morgan Honschke. I am an artist that loves to combine the aesthetics of the past with the creative edge of the here and now, with that in mind The Distinguished Octo Aeronaut Society Pin was born. 

The soft enamel pin comes in an antiqued bronze finish that along with color palette evokes the feeling of the vintage aviation medals of the past. The backer card simulates the ribbon that would adorn the medals as worn on formal uniforms.

At 65mm the Octo-Aeronaut pin is large, but not so large that it will be cumbersome to wear. The size ensures that the wing and tentacle details are crisp and visible. 

                  "The Distinguished Octo-Aeronaut Society" logo is embossed on the back. 



                                     If we reach $650, every backer will each receive a sticker. 

Risks and challenges

This is our first Kickstarter and with it will come the challenges associated with all new ventures. That being said I have spent time talking with other creators to find the ideal partners to bring our creative vision to life and feel we have done the homework to have a successful campaign.
