Gift Box — B0294-6C06

£5.95

Product

This elegant matchbox-style gift box contains three designs from Stereohype's growing button badge collection – now available for the first time in this superb packaging solution. A rose-gold foil-blocked Stereohype mascot squirrel was hand-printed in the UK at the top of the gift box (outside dimensions: 75 x 72 x 16mm). Inside the beautiful matt black cardboard gift box is a black flock pad and badges are directly pinned into it. All Stereohype button badges available at stereohype.com are classic high quality one inch (25mm) metal back badges with so-called D-pin (although it looks more like an 'e'). Tiny stickers at the back of each button badge mention the artist, release date, series number, etc. Badges are manufactured with love and care in the United Kingdom.

Design

4th Prize (Category: Set of 3)

The button badge set is called Play/Balls. "The three badges are of a tennis ball, a basketball and a volleyball. It's inspired by 70's minimalism and conceptualism, basically taking the lines and round shape of different types of balls. The lack of colour gives them a mutual look and abstraction, almost to the point of the banal, like a paint-by-numbers. Boiled down to the essentials, all we see is pattern and lines, where all origin seems to disappear."

These artworks are by one of ten winners of our third annual button badge design competition – selected from 593 entries submitted by 232 individuals, collectives and studios.
