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.
This artwork is also available as Button Badge Motif Print.

Maria's badges choice was in honour of the International Day of Yoga, which she transposed into expressive, exaggerated shapes. And because no yoga practitioner is a silent activist, the design also has an empowering element of feminism, encouraging women to be active regardless of their body type.
