Buttons

Buttons aren’t just fun wearables – they also teach us history!

How can you make an impact on an inches-wide circle?!

According to the Busy Beaver Button Museum right here in moderately sunny Chicago, buttons were patented way back in 1896 and have since complimented important movements, political campaigns, and so much more!

Buttons can be a million things to different people, which makes them an incredibly versatile way to get a message across – not to mention a unique fashion accessory. Sometimes simple, other times fun or funny, buttons can also be part of an important political or societal statement that helps unite people. Consider bold colors, high contrast, iconic graphics, and succinct messages (if you use words), all of which work well in a tiny-ish form factor. So gather ‘round, friends, and get your button on with this Design Challenge.
