Wearable Graphics


There’s an accessory trend out there for those of us who love graphic design and fashion…lapel pins! Except, you don’t have to wear these on any lapels. Pin them to your backpack, jean jacket or t-shirt.

Group them together like the Tears pin from H.K.M. above.

Wear them as a reminder that everything is going to be OK, especially your style.

Wear a pin as a warning for your Bossy tendencies, or maybe wear it to remind yourself who’s boss!


This RGB pin from These Are Things is perfect for the design lover. You can literally wear your love for color and design on your sleeve.

Graphic design lives online, in print and in our closets, but pins add a (fun) layer to wearable design…

These pin are just another way to express yourself, your personality and also a way to connect with other designers.

Say Thank You in style…


Don’t dismiss lapel pins for being silly or cute, they can also carry a meaningful message in a pretty package, like the All Hope Is Not Lost design above from Frolik Studio (@frolik_studio on Instagram).
