Part art project, part craft based exploration of social dynamics, part wind-up: the Needlessly Aggressive badge range is a collection of bits of metal and plastic that have a variety of messages that their creator finds amusing and either thinks someone might buy or get wound-up at the thought of them existing (especially the Doctor Who ones). Mostly riffing on the themes of popular culture and the geek scene, all of the badges are hand-produced in limited edition runs. New designs are regularly produced, and custom commissions will be considered.

Leah Moore, mercilessly shilling for us at Thought Bubble 2016. Until she got her "This Badge Makes Me A Writer" badge she was in an existential quandary about how to define herself or evaluate her body of work, possibly.
Curtis Hadley thought he was pretty interesting when his "Jurassic Park Margarita Man" cosplay went viral, but now he's got a "Cosplay Makes Me Interesting" badge from MCM Midlands 2017 he knows he is; the shameless shill!!
