The winners of the 9th annual Sterohype Button Badge competition have been awarded by a team of 30 judges including Digital Arts editor Neil Bennett. The graphics art label has released its own BIO (By Invitiation Only) 13 range and a custom designed shoelace box.
First to fifth prizes were awarded in two categories: for individual badges and sets of four. The top single badge prize went to Shiva Karamzadeh, while the first prize for a set went to Sara Cunha.
Stereohype also gave out its own special prizes in both categories, which went to Cynthia Bataille for a single badge and Jono Sandilands for a set.
The judges also included writers Angharad Lewis, Gavin Lucas, Liz Farrelly, previous winners and of course Tomi and Agathe from the graphic arts label (and the associated design studio [email protected]).
