Warning: Last items in stock!
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 1,400 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.
Squirrels have always been Stereohype's mascot and numerous different versions have been created by the founders' design studio FL@33 since Stereohype's launch in 2004.
Like squirrels, the Stereohype team stores and hides button badges and other graphic art products in different locations across its London HQ – and when orders are being processed – the Stereohype squirrels do their best to spread out to find and dig up all the hidden gems to share the love with customers, stockists, friends and supporters... Nuts!

Agathe Jacquillat and Tomi Vollauschek of multi-disciplinary design studio FL@33 founded Stereohype in October 2004 – not just as an experimental playground for the London-based creative duo, but as an international platform for both emerging and established talents alike. Stereohype’s product range includes graphic art including Button Badge Motif Prints, printed T-shirts and an ever-growing button badge collection that consists of winning designs entered to the label's annual badge design competition plus badges created specially for Stereohype’s By Invitation Only (B.I.O.) initiative. Various other badge design projects are also added to the range occasionally. Products are available via the graphic art label's online boutique and selected stockists.
Since Stereohype's launch in 2004 its founders – who also run FL@33, multi-disciplinary design studio for visual communication – have created numerous squirrel mascots for Stereohype. The squirrels have become part of the graphic art label and online boutique's ever-evolving visual identity and some of them featured on T-shirts, postcards, the online boutique, in exhibition catalogues and one was even built as a sculpture (see flat33.com). Selected squirrel motifs are now also available for the first time as button badges and some of them were also chosen to become part of the FL@33-curated Button Badge Motif Print edition while even larger squirrel prints are available in our Graphic Art section.
