Nerfect‘s Mr. Britton Walters is the creator of a colorful cast of characters and wares, including about a million button designs. Mr. Walters has been making buttons with Busy Beaver since we were just a little Beaver kitten of a company and he’s got a seemingly endless supply of criminal hot dogs, well-trained pugs and geometric monsters to grace the face of a 1 inch round.
Mr. Walters explained that as his line of products has grown, buttons are the one product that he can always count on a new store being willing to try out. He also uses buttons to test out designs and concepts in small runs; ones that work well as buttons can then be translated into other products like t-shirts. He explained that “business cards and flyers get tossed, but people tend to hang on to a well-designed button.” Plus, since his work is very character-driven, “it is always fun to slip one of these buttons onto fairly normal duds, and just know that you have this crazy little character traveling around with you.”
