As usual, here are some insights from the designer herself:
I am an illustrator from Finland. While drawing for one design competition that was about Twitter, I started to really like this little bird, and decided to create a whole set for Smashing Magazine’s readers. I am very excited of the mesh tool in illustrator, andIi want to encourage all designers to try it. I have found it very helpful in my icon design. Greetings to all Smashing Magazine readers!
