Yahoo!’s New Brightly-Colored Camera Avatars For Flickr
With the revamp of its Flickr, search giant Yahoo! hired award-winning Greece-based designer Charis Tsevis to create new avatars for its photo-sharing site.
Tsevis created vibrantly-colored geometric illustrations of cameras, reflective of Flickr’s products and community: photography-centric, colorful and personal.
Influenced by Furutist ‘Aeropittura’, later movements of M.A.C. (Movimento Arte Concreta) and other mid-century movements—the illustrations are what Tsevis calls “Neo-Furutism” or “Neo-Cubism”.
Flickr would be replacing the default avatars with Tsevis-created illustrations, at a larger size as compared to the old avatars.
