Tiny stickers at the back mention the artist, release date, series number, etc. The growing collection of these mobile mini canvases – featuring over 1,600 individual designs by over 600 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.

"There are three buttons, they are made in order to travel the world. They come from a 2nd hand market in Bruxelles I visited this year. I got a big family photo album with holiday snapshots of a grandma', from the 50s to 80s. I want to give new life to the moments captured in these photographs by applying them to button badges."

Guillaume Neim aka Lomatoufaire is a young graphic designer, living in the Parisian suburbs, France. He is working since 2003, to create visual goods, printed or virtual. He enjoys designing a button badge, a balloon, a simple white craft box, stickers, books, visual identities and more – too vast to be numbered, and to be imagined… His passion is to travel to cities like London, Amsterdam, Bruxelles or Barcelona, to collect pieces of signs, walls, textures, urban signage and wall paintings and to transform them into graphic objects such as button badges, books, projections or postcards.
