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.
Taxidermy Bird Eyes — The imagery for this Intercity badge series has been taken from a project the studio did in early 2012 for Brighton-based record label Concrete Plastic. With a brief that included a reference to the 1982 science fiction film Blade Runner, Intercity came up with the idea of photographing the plastic bird eyes used in taxidermy – a direct reference to the scene in the film where an owl’s eyes flicker with a red tint, indicating that it is artificial. The orange taxidermy eye seen here (taken from the Blixaboy Intro to Futro EP cover artwork) is that of a Snowy Owl, and the yellow taxidermy eye (taken from the Blixaboy Futro City album cover artwork) is that of a Sparrowhawk.
