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 art director Alex Haigh graduated from Sheffield and went on in 2007 to set up Thinkdust, a multi-disciplinary studio specialising in creative design output for print and new media. In 2009 he also set up online type foundry and font shop HypeForType that quickly grew to become the UK's biggest online font distributor.
