The Best Button Badge Designs of 2016

Button Badge Design by Blanca Rego

One of my data bending/glitch/sound illustrations/designs has been featured in an article published in the Digital Arts magazine website. “The Best Button Badge Designs of 2016 now available as prints”.

I found this by chance, and it’s a bit funny because I spent a lot of years translating articles for the Spanish version of that magazine. Anyway, my design is not available as print, but if you like it you can buy the button badge.

My blue and your blue

“As Wittgenstein famously theorized, I can never be certain that my ‘blue’ is your ‘blue’; I can only persuade you to share a consensual language-game whose referents are sufficiently stable to function.”

Electric blue

“In August 1973 lighting struck a paint factory at Middelsborough, bringing down a vat of sulphuric acid. The acid fell into a yard, spattering gloss paint test samples that had been weathering there for fifteen years. The one sample to scape damage was a colour identified on the paint manufacturer’s colour-chart as electric-blue.”
Act of God by Peter Greenaway

“Electric blue is a color close to cyan that is a representation of the color of lightning, an electric spark, and argon signs.”
