Here at Busy Beaver, we’re always working on new ways to spread the button love. For us that means creating great buttons, as well as supporting a whole community of button makers and button lovers. Building on the success of our annual Scary Booton Contest, we’re debuting The Pinback Project, a new series of bi-monthly button design contests. The Pinback Project will give button designers the opportunity to share their creations with a wider audience and create a community where artists can inspire each other. Each contest will have a unique theme and a guest judge to choose the winner of a great prize pack.
The theme of our first ever Pinback Project is designed especially for those of us who may get a little grumpy this time of year: “Bah Humbug”
