B.I.O. (BY INVITATION ONLY) BUTTON BADGE SERIES | 2004 – ONGOING
FL@33 contributions for our ongoing design initiative B.I.O. (By Invitation Only) Button Badge Series 1–17 for FL@33's sister-company stereohype.com – London-based graphic art label, online boutique and experimental platform for talents from around the world.
___ Selected international graphic designers, illustrators, photographers and artists are regularly invited by FL@33 to submit one single design or a set of four or seven for this one inch (25mm) button badge series. FL@33 contributes to all B.I.O. Series between 1 and 14 designs.
___ Having started in 2004 with B.I.O. Series 1 – it took us eight years to catch up with the years. Since B.I.O. Series 12 releases are now finally launched annually.
___ The latest addition – B.I.O. Series 17 – was released in November 2017. A previous release B.I.O. Series 14 formed part of our anniversary celebrations that included the exhibition Stereohype 2004–2014 and a book of the same name.

___ Stereohype.com sells B.I.O. series badges separately and gives them away as a free surprise badge with purchased Stereohype T-shirts. Sets of three or four come in a special packaging and are exlusively available at stereohype.com and selected stockists around the world.
___ Special Stereohype gift boxes of seven were also developed by FL@33 including a limited edition gift box special with custom shoelace for selected AFOMFS (A Few Of My Favourite Sneakers) button badges.
___ The growing collection – currently already featuring 1,331 individual designs – consists of all B.I.O. contributions, winners of Stereohype's annual button badge design competition and additional series such as collaborative AFOMFS series, MICA series, 10x10 series and Emoji series.
___ We also call them mobile mini canvases.

BUTTON BADGE MOTIF PRINTS | FINE ART STEREOHYPE EDITION
Hand-picked designs from the FL@33-curated collection are now also available as Button Badge Motif Prints.
___ The super-vibrant Fine Art Giclée Prints feature selected designs from Stereohype's ever-growing one inch (25mm) button badge collection – including B.I.O. Series designs by FL@33 and others. High resolution files of the circular artworks are enlarged to seven inch (178mm) and printed with love and vivid archival inks on a beautifully textured 310gsm Hahnemühle paper (portrait, 8x10" / 203x254mm).

PRESS CLIPPINGS
(...) B.I.O. undoubtedly makes Stereohype one of the coolest online shopping destinations for button badges. (...) Gavin Lucas, excerpt from his book Badge/Button/Pin



(...) Über die B.I.O.-Initiative (by invitation only) und diverse Button-Wettbewerbe ist so in den vergangenen (...) Jahren eine beachtliche Anzahl an kleinformativen Kunstwerken zusammengekommen. Verblüffend ist dabei immer wieder die kreative Vielfalt, die sich selbst auf so beschränktem Raum (25mm) zu entfalten vermag. (...) Christine Moosmann, Novum

(...) espaces d’expression restreints à 25 mm de diamètre, les objets supportent un art de la présentation qui ne souffre pas l’étalage. Les séries B.I.O. (by invitation only) accessoirisent l’identité personnelle : à exhiber, à afficher, à affirmer. /
(...) The objects – a rather tiny 25mm-wide space for expression – lend themselves to an art of display that can’t be overdone. The B.I.O. (by invitation only) series accessorise personal identity – exhibiting, displaying, asserting it. (...) Caroline Bouige, Étapes: / Étapes: international
