I recently spoke with illustrator and long-time button customer Julien Chung. Julien’s been making buttons with Busy Beaver since 2005 and you can always bet that when his new order comes in it’ll be the brightest, most colorful designs of the day. Julien uses his buttons to advertise his work to potential clients. Below he talks about how buttons work as the perfect little giveaway.
Tell us a little about yourself.
I am a designer and illustrator in Montreal, Canada and I license my characters to manufacturers around the world. My designs can be found on beer glasses, coffee mugs, umbrellas, chocolate packaging and many other items in Europe and Japan.
What’s the story behind your latest buttons?
I have been using BBBC’s buttons for many years now. The excellent quality and special shapes make the buttons a great promotional item for me. People love to wear them and love it when they have a choice of designs. The fact that I can order small quantities of several designs at good prices is big plus.
Thanks to Julien for sharing his button story with us! You can check out more of his work here.
