Flat Butts: An Off-Beat Website Devoted To Flat Design Icons Of Animal Backsides
By Jillian Wong, 16 Apr 2014
New York City-based art director Peter Jostrand has turned his obsession with animal posteriors into a humorously off-beat blog titled ‘Flat Butts.’
In an interview with Fast Company, he explained that he got the idea of cataloguing animal backsides during a meeting, when he came across a slide explaining minimalism that was mostly empty save for a circle in the middle.
He put two and two together and realized that flat design goes well with animal behinds. To show how deep his fascination with animal buttocks runs, he revealed that he has “50 butts queued.”
If you’re thinking Jostrand studies pictures of animal rears intently before rendering them as graphics, you’re right. Jostrand admits working on his designs in the office gives rise to awkward situations but he’s “gotten really good at hitting Command Tab” whenever a co-worker strolls by his desk.
Some of the animal rumps he has come up with include those of a tiger, a baboon, a pig, and a particularly adorable one of a bumblebee.
Check out some animal butt graphics below and follow his blog for more. Which is your favorite butt?
