Thank you all so much for such a colourful last year. What a weird one – filled with tears and shock but also laughter and joy in between. There was loss but there were also great encounters, new friendships and collaborations. We also discovered that somebody actually has a FL@33 logo tattoo and there were also more out-of-studio activities than ever before (one of last year's resolutions) and fun – lots of fun was had, too. We wish you happy holidays! •<(:o) We are now on a well-deserved break and the studio will open again with fresh new energy and optimism on January 3rd, 2017.

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.
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 that FL@33 developed for the graphic art label and online boutique.
___ The new edition features the first 18 artworks by FL@33 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.
___ High resolution files of the 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 – also developed especially for Button Badge Motif Prints).
