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 mention the artist, release date, series number, etc. The growing collection of these mobile mini canvases – featuring over 1,500 individual designs by over 500 international graphic designers, illustrators, photographers and artists – consists of all B.I.O. (By Invitation Only) contributions, winners of Stereohype's annual button badge design competition and additional series such as the special collaborations: AFOMFS Series, MICA Series, 10x10 Series and Emoji Series. Badges are manufactured in the United Kingdom.
Designer and illustrator Kat Stubbings is the creative mind behind her currently dormant Vilderness sideline project we had the pleasure to stock in the early years of Stereohype. At the time she wrote: "Tread carefully when wandering through the Vilderness, you may find a child’s wooden leg, tentacled antlers, inhabitable trees, flora and fauna, the architectual dangerous or a nice cup of tea. This London based adventure provides a diverse collection which could be anyone of a million notions that baffle and pre-occupy. Vilderness gives you its characteristicly layered signature on hand-finished sweatshop free garments, as well as other limited and rare products. Vilderness has also exhibited throughout Europe."
