How Join the Company started their button or icon journey

Summary

We are building an online game that will have achievements for various accomplishments, called badges. We are looking to see many different styles and ideas, and pick a winner, whom we will then do a larger project with to fill out what we need.

What inspires you and how do you envision the design for your business?

Many websites and games use "badges" or awards to give credit for little achievements...

Here is a collage of several examples.
http://i41.tinypic.com/2cfv9mx.jpg

Usually, there is a NAME for the badge, and an iconic representation in the badge of what the achievement was for, and a brief description of what they did to earn it. For example:
ADDICT
Played the game every day for 1 week for at least an hour every day. (badge would show a needle)

We like the military "medal" idea, and have mocked up the kind of look we are aiming towards. However, we are open to any and all ideas, and will pick the winner we like best... So dont be afraid to try something totally outside the box.

The badges should be 50 pixels wide, and 100 tall.
What we have in mind:
http://i43.tinypic.com/5mbszb.jpg

The top half of each badge image will be the ribbon, while the bottom half will be the iconic medalion. It should appear to be metal or embossed like an actual military medal would be. But we are a fun, cool, simple game... not a WWII FPS, so style should reflect that.

Ribbons will be a variety of colors and stripes depending on what "type" of badge is earned. The medal area will be some sort of symbol or icon of what the specific achievement was. It can be embossed on a circle, or hang freely.

Wants

We want to see 3 badges from each submitter.
Use different techniques / styles for each one if you want.
Use 3 different ribbon colors / stripes / styles
Pick 3 different items to show as a badge from this list:

A Syringe,
Rennaisance Man (something like this http://tinyurl.com/de272r),
Game Controller,
Article Icon,
Video Icon,
Mouse Cursor,
Shopping Cart,
Fishing Hook,
Piggy bank

UPDATE:
I really like this design :::

modified from this series of amazing medals from a game called the Outfit: http://bit.ly/FDaOV

Also, we might need some additional iconography projects to do with the winner... For instance a clock, coin stack, game controller icon, video play button, etc.

Don't want

something too childish or simple.
