Badges are manufactured in the United Kingdom.
‘After exploring various options, it occurred to me that drawing a head, but with a boxing glove where the brain should be, best describes the feeling of a really bad headache. This would probably be most used as a bad hangover emoji.’ — Noma Bar
Excerpt from the book The Story of Emoji by Gavin Lucas. External link: thestoryofemoji.com
Avinoam 'Noma' Bar (born in 1973) is an Israel born graphic designer, illustrator and artist. Noma Bar loves to tell visual stories. With a deft touch he can imbue simple graphic forms with political and social commentary, or manipulate everyday icons to create witty, double- take images that make you look once, twice, three times. With his bold use of colours, shapes and pared down iconography, Bar captures the spirit of a person or the heart of an issue with arresting clarity and humour and his instantly recognizable style has established him as one of the world’s most in-demand illustrators.

These custom emoji artworks originally featured in the FL@33-designed book The Story of Emoji by Gavin Lucas (Prestel Publishing, March 2016). If you could create a new emoji, what would it be? Gavin Lucas asked a number of image-makers from around the world to design new emoji characters they wish really existed. Book contributions were submitted just before iOS 9 was released (which also included the 'Metal Fingers' / 'Devil's Horns' emoji addition). One day soon – hopefully – all these bespoke emoji suggestions will be included... This one inch (25mm) button badge series is a collaboration between Stereohype, Gavin Lucas and the selected emoji contributors Ali Graham, Crispin Finn, David Henckel, FL@33, Friso Blankevoort, Hey Studio, Jan Kallwejt, Julian Morey, Liza Nelson, Lucy Vigrass, Matt Chase, Matthew Bromley, Mr Bingo, Nick Shea, Noma Bar, Peskimo, Richard Hogg, Rob Flowers, Serge Seidlitz, Tane Williams and TwoPoints. Stereohype sells Emoji Series badges separately and gives them away as a free surprise badge with selected Stereohype T-shirts. Released: April 2016 as part of the book launch exhibition.
