Artist

Egon Swaels is a graphic designer and illustrator from Lille, France, where he studied design for five years. Passionate about illustration and edition, his work is based on mixed technical experimentations and a touch of fantasy. Through photography, linocut or black ink, he tries to explore the link between creation and human senses. Hearing, sight or touch are often used as a starting point in Egon's graphic research, allowing him to reach as many people as possible.

Eligible are entries by designers, artists, photographers, illustrators and by students in any of these areas – including runners-up from previous competitions. Not eligible however are contributors to our B.I.O. (By Invitation Only), MICAAFOMFS, 10x10 and Emoji Series former competition winners who are more than welcome to become part of the judging panel. Winning button badge designs are hand-picked by our esteemed annual jury members – usually 20–30 former competition winners, button badge-loving journalists, writers, illustrators, artists and graphic designers from around the world – many of them contributors to Stereohype's button badge collection themselves.
