I’ve been designing and selling 2.25″ pinback buttons for about a year and a half now (I used to make 1 inch buttons but there are very different considerations to be made between the two sizes).
I have easily over 40 designs at this point. Here’s examples of a handful of them. Most of these illustrations were purpose-made for the circular button format. Original illustrations created in Photoshop and Illustrator. I try to incorporate matching textures or repeat patterns into the backgrounds of the designs when I can.
Making these buttons allows me to explore a wide range of illustration styles.
- Adobe Illustrator
- Digital Painting
- Pattern Design
- Vector Illustration
