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 1,400 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.
Allan Deas is a London-based designer and illustrator originally from Scotland. Having worked for many years as a graphic designer in the fashion industry Allan finally returned to his passion for illustration which he studied in the late 90s (before the days of computers!) A self confessed "visual magpie", he finds inspiration in everything from vintage packaging and 70s kids TV programmes to matchboxes and stamps and likes to collect anything considered "eye candy" despite running out of shoeboxes to store it all! His illustration style consists of deliberate lines and block colour and has been described as "beautifully retro and organic with a very strong sense of humour".
