Definitely worth a watch. We were shown this animation in uni and I thought it was brilliant. Who knew such a simplistic vector character could arouse such emotion? It delivers a really important message in a captivating way. Watch the video and check out The Girl Effect for more information.
I found Mauro De Donatis’ work on behance. He has created an extensive series of pieces just like the two above. Triangular-ish musicians. Quite unusual.

I decided to use The Curious Robin as the brand name and a quote from Ron Miriello
‘Creativity is in everyone; it just manifests itself differently with each person‘
I adopted a clean cut vector style and this is what I produced.
These are some of the birds from Josh Brill’s Flora Fauna series. This collection of colourful bird illustrations is so fresh, simplistic and beautiful. Through the series, Brill examines and shows the visual character differences and similarities. As well as the contemporary illustration style, I like how they are displayed alongside their specific chirping noise. The Dodo’s noise; unknown. In an interview with grain edit Josh Brill speaks of how he came to start these pieces and his main inspirations.
Edit: I now own a signed European Robin print. My friend Karen ordered it for me for my 22nd Birthday!!
Here are eight logos I designed for a publication at the end of semester one. The theme of my publication was quite random to say the least – A pigeon’s guide to Belfast.
I created the logos so that they could easily show the various hotspots in Belfast for different activities for pigeons. The map shows the ideal places to eat, drink, socialise, poop, work, have human interaction, play chicken and finally places to avoid – where the cats are known to lurk. The general safety of each activity is reflected in its colour, with most activities being yellow, the game ‘chicken’ being orange and then the dangerous areas with cats being red.
I created these logos in Adobe Illustrator using mostly my own photographs as sources. I enjoyed creating these vector images of pigeons and I hope to create more vector images in the future, except instead of silhouette’s, they could be more lifelike and colourful.
I had fun creating the map and the locations are realistic. For example, the places where pigeons can find employment are the Belfast Telegraph and the Irish News. The pigeon carrying days are not over. Places for ‘Target Practice’ are the various car parks in the Smithfield Market & Library Quarter. The publication goes into detail about the bonus points for successfully aiming for someone just as they exit their car. Places to play chicken are Millfield and Royal Avenue as both of these streets see a lot of buses. Finally, the cat’s main haunt in Belfast is Lower Garfield Street.
