After reading Lee Munroe’s post about creative Twitter backgrounds I discovered a list of 20+ Twitter Bird designs. It seems to be fastly becoming the latest craze to create your own Twitter bird for your blog. And I’m all about crazes! Here’s what I came up with.
I really wanted something a bit different and obscure than the traditional ‘cartoony style’ bird so I went for an origami one. Any thoughts/opinions on it are welcome. I had a look at some origami birds and then designed my own over the top of the original Twitter logo, using the same colours to make it a bit more recognisable to twitter addicts.
I kinda like the fact that only people who are really familiar with and love Twitter for the right reasons should be able to recognise it. Twitter has crossed a line recently with Britney Spears creating an account. Don’t get me started on that.
Anyway, feel free to use the files below on your blog/site if you like it :) Im a true believer in the open source life so just shoot me an email if you use them. :) Also you can find me on Twitter at paddydonnelly.
