BUTTON BADGE MOTIF PRINTS | CONCEPT GENERATION, ARTWORKS, IDENTITY
FL@33 developed a new print edition idea for graphic art label and online boutique Stereohype – the studio's sister-company. The new series is called 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. 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).
___ The print series will grow to be as eclectic as Stereohype's widely-acclaimed button badge collection that already features over 1,200 artworks by over 350 established and emerging illustrators, graphic designers, typographers, photographers and artists from around the world.
___ Some of Stereohype's button badge motifs are clearly better suited to be enlarged and featured on a print than others, but many hundreds of designs will make amazing print motifs. More prints will regularly be added to this new Stereohype range. Each print comes with the according button badge.
___ Next steps: selecting the next batch of motifs and getting in touch with each selected artist in our network of collaborators. If you are a collaborator please do already start to search for the hi-res files and/or recreate the artwork accordingly...
BUTTON BADGE MOTIF PRINTS | ARTWORKS
The first batch of 18 released button badge motifs are all designs by FL@33-founders Agathe Jacquillat and Tomi Vollauschek. The circular creations include 14 new artworks that were released in late November 2016 as part of B.I.O. (By Invitation Only) Button Badge Series 16.
___ Agathe Jacquillat's 'Leaves' prints, Tomi Vollauschek's 'Glitch' photography artworks, and the other four print motifs that stem from Tomi's computer crash screenshot contributions 'System Error' for B.I.O. Series 13 are now all available at stereohype.com as prints, single badges and even in elegant themed button badge gift boxes.
___ A second batch was added a couple of months later and featured 45 new Button Badge Motif Prints. They included ten more FL@33 artworks and selected motifs by nine other international Stereohype collaborators.
BUTTON BADGE MOTIF PRINTS | IDENTITY | EMBOSSED CERTIFICATION SEAL
As part of developing the concept for Button Badge Motif Prints, FL@33 also created a logo for the series that is used to enhance each print with an embossed Stereohype certification seal. This logo is also the first step in establishing an identity for this likely to become very comprehensive collection of prints.
___ The certification seal shows the life-sized back of a classic one inch (25mm) button badge – a so-called D-pin button badge to be precise (even though the inserted pin looks more like a bent lowercase 'e'). This is the kind of highest quality button badge Stereohype uses for its collection.
___ A more detailed project description with insights about the process of developing the seal logo can be found on the dedicated project page.
