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 SeriesMICA Series, 10x10 Series and Emoji Series. Badges are manufactured 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."

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

Winners: Agnese Bicocchi, Wanda Kamarga, Ben HolroydGuillaume Neim / Lomatoufaire, Ildikó Hajdú, Cat FinnieHervé Bienaimé / Les 84, Costa del Sol LewittMatthew Kenyon and Studio Gpop.
