#28: The Bird; Enigma, Garden Project
🐦 The Bird
The Bird is no more; as X is replacing it! Personally, I feel a strong connection to the Bird because it was a crucial part of my designs a decade ago, when I ran my advertising agency. Social media icon packs we chose depended on how well the Bird matched with other social media icons. Martin Grasser, the designer of the Bird, has shared his 2011 design process. Goodbye, Bird - you'll be misXsed!
🌱 Digital Gardening
Introducing the new version of Hiran.in! I have given it a fresh look. It's still powered by Jekyll, and Obsidian is the Digital Garden Management System. Instead of just updating the upstream theme, I'm thinking about completely changing it to a theme for personal sites and digital gardening. If you use the theme, or has any thoughts - feel free to share your feedback with me!
