December 2011 Hot Button Winners

Congrats to our
December 2011 Hot Button of the Month Winner!

December's Hot Button of the Month Contest Winner is…Dominic Davi from The Dinosaur Factory in Pittsburg, CA.. Dominic designed this button using the main logo for his clothing and art line, The Dinosour Factory.

"I wanted a logo that would intrigue adults, and appeal to children," Dominic said. "This design is fun and combines elements of yesterday and today."

Dominic noted that The Dinosaur Factory attends a lot of comic, art, and sci-fi conventions in order to spread the word of the company and sell merchandise. "Bringing these buttons along to the conventions was a fantastic idea. People love them!" said Dominic. "No matter how old you are, everyone loves a fun and funky button to wear!"

As the Hot Button of the Month winner, Dominic received a $100 Badge-A-Minit gift certificate.

Bama Christmas
Making a unique Christmas ornament featuring the Alabama Crimson Tide was the goal of Beth Kennedy of Guntersville, AL, when she began designing this button. "I used a standard 2-1/4" button and sandwiched a piece of ribbon in between two button parts. The result was a beautiful custom Alabama Christmas ornament that can also be worn - because it's also a button!" said Beth.
Thuy Lowe
Phyllis Olmstead of Apopka, FL, submitted this political button, which was made to help a first-time candidate announce her campaign to help reform education. "Worn on both black and white shirts and blouses, this button 'popped' the message to everyone who saw it," Phyllis noted.
No to GMO!
Morgan Maynard-Dixon of The Real Food Market in Helena designed this button to bring attention to GMOs (Genetically Modified Organisms) that are present in many of the foods we eat. "The buttons help raise awareness to the issue - and many of our customers signed a petition requesting the government require companies to label whether they use GMOs in the foods they market," Morgan said.
