Warning: Last items in stock!
Each luxury gift box contains seven of Stereohype's popular button badges. Selected designs are taken from Stereohype's growing button badge collection. So-called Artist Gift Boxes feature button badges designed by only one of Stereohype's super-talented 500+ international contributors – artists, illustrators, designers, architects, photographers, collectives and studios. Inside the elegant matt black cardboard gift box (215 x 45 x 25mm) 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 UK.
Badges by Nick Bell from Stereohype's B.I.O. Series 15.
Listener — In 2015, as part of the Early Lab with students of University of the Arts London (UAL), Nick Bell has been working on a research project on youth mental health with young service users of the Norfolk & Suffolk NHS Foundation Trust. These badges commemorate all the careful listening that was invested in the search for a much better mental health service for young people. 1 in 10 children in the UK have a diagnosable mental health condition and so do 1 in 4 adults.

Nick Bell is a designer absorbed by the new social potentials of design. He likes to use design to frame socio-ecological challenges that are public forming. He finds the collaborative nature of practice that complex challenges demand fascinating. Designing responsively, he prefers to work directly with stakeholders in the places where they are – using processes of making in creative co-production that help people articulate and communicate their side of the story.
He is UAL Chair of Communication Design at the University of the Arts London (UAL), where he co-founded the Early Lab – a cross-university, trans-disciplinary research lab consisting of a group of students proactively offering co-consultancy much earlier in project processes than is typical for design. He is also an editorial designer running a design studio, Nick Bell Design, which has a curatorial concern for the voice of interpretation and interactivity. Previously he was creative director of Eye magazine, the collectable and critical journal of graphic design.
