Stereohype's freshly launched Fine Art Giclée Print edition Button Badge Motif Prints was developed by FL@33 – together with first artworks and the design of a logo for this range. The logo is used to certify each print with an embossed Stereohype seal and is also the first step in establishing an identity for this likely to become very comprehensive collection of prints. A project page showing the seal in more detail and additional info can be found at the studio's website flat33.com now.
December 1st, 2016
Just in time for Christmas – we are super-excited to announce the launch of a new Stereohype range of Fine Art Giclée Print edition called Button Badge Motif Prints featuring the first 18 artworks selected from Stereohype's widely-acclaimed button badge collection – 14 of them from B.I.O. Series 16 that was also just released. The already 1244-strong button badge collection features artworks by over 350 illustrators, designer, photographers and artists from around the world. Some of the 1244 badge motifs will clearly be better suited than others, but hundreds of them will be strong contenders to also become beautiful prints, that we plan to release regularly from now on. One inch button badge motifs were blown up to seven inch and printed on beautifully textured, archival Hahnemühle paper (310gsm, 8" x 10" / 203mm x 254mm, embossed certification seal). Read all about the new print series' concept generation at flat33.com. For an overview here at stereohype.com and more info and photos click here.
