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 1,600 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.
Kevin Valente is an illustrator and designer based in Brooklyn, NY. He obtained his BFA from MICA (Maryland Institute College of Art) in 2012, followed by his MFA in Illustration Practice in 2014. His work has been recognised by the Society of Illustrators New York. As a child, Kevin grew up abroad, his time spent traveling throughout Asia and Europe where he developed a taste for adventure. Kevin's work – referential of a childhood rooted in the 90's – is characterised by bright colour fields, intricate pattern work, and a quirky sense of humour. When he is not spending endless hours in the studio, he enjoys exploring new places with his friends, making collaborative zines, and lobbying for moustaches.

This one inch (25mm) button badge series is a collaboration between the MFA in Illustration Practice program (MFA ILP) at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) in Baltimore, MD, USA, and Stereohype. Artworks were created as part of a Made & Sold book-inspired workshop by FL@33 and Stereohype co-founder Tomi Vollauschek that took place at the college in March 2013. The black and white MICA Button Badge Series includes artworks by Alexandra Citrin, Diyou Wu, Eduardo Corral, Joshua Heinsz, Kevin Valente, Lisk Feng, Lynn Chen, Maily Degnan, Sarah Jacoby, Seo Kim, Stacey Montebello and Valeria Molinari. Stereohype sells MICA Series badges separately and gives them away as a free surprise badge with selected Stereohype T-shirts. Released: July 2013
