Tiny stickers at the back mention the artist, release date, series number, etc. The growing collection of these mobile mini canvases – featuring over 1,500 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.
This artwork is also available as Button Badge Motif Print and as part of an elegant luxury gift box containing 7 themed button badges.
This artwork is from button badge gift box Broken Beauty containing seven badges from B.I.O. (By Invitation Only) Button Badge Series 17. The glitch visuals by FL@33's Tomi Vollauschek are from his collection of digital photographs featuring broken monitors, computer screens and handheld touchscreen devices. The pictures represent an abstract optimism celebrated by persevering and by discovering and holding on to occasional beauty in unforeseen moments of accidents and destruction. Artworks by FL@33's Agathe Jacquillat and/or Tomi Vollauschek are signed at the back.
FL@33 is a multi-disciplinary design studio based in London and founded in 2001 by Royal College of Art graduates Agathe Jacquillat and Tomi Vollauschek. Since then FL@33 has created an award-winning, internationally published body of work, ranging from self-initiated projects to commissioned work for clients from around the world, across many different sectors, regardless of size and budget. From logos to integrated identity systems, intriguing imagery to complete book designs, from poster campaigns to websites, moving image and interior design.
Agathe and Tomi are friendly, passionate and dedicated designers who give international lectures, judge, art direct, consult, design, curate, exhibit, contribute to books and magazines, conceive, compile, edit and write their own books, give workshops, and also develop design products for the studio’s sister company Stereohype.
