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!

Currently everybody is speaking about Twitter. This lifestreaming application is supposed to be the next big thing. In fact, we added a “tweet about us”-image at the bottom of our posts. But maybe you would like to add something more colorful to your blog? This is why we release this icons set, a set of 6 cute tweet-birds, designed by Gopal Raju14. The package contains high-quality 360×360 transparent .png-files. The set is available for free download and use.

    I would love to see a set of icons covering the basics of web applications from an administration perspective; a lot of the sets floating around right now tend to be focused on the front end – let’s give the back end come love too people! :D Awesome icons by the way, thank you!

    These are great !
    I would like sets that can be used together on the various toolbars.
    I would like to see more of this size, 48, and up.
    I would like to see some that could be put on folders for things we really save, to customize the folders with the icon to match.
    I would not like to see the same old “office” type.

    Oops! I meant things to customize folders when you go to “properties” with the icon to match.
    Sorry to repeat the above. I could not delete this one
