If you have’t already noticed, Flickr has recently underwent a major redesign. Among other things such as a terabyte of disk space and a new and inspired user interface, Flickr has also recreated one of those tiny details that are generally forgotten or dismissed by otherswe are of course talking about the often ignored avatar.
With the new design, Flickr ‘retired’ their old ‘Howdy’ avatar, and commissioned visual designer Charis Tsevis to create a series of vibrant avatars that would reflect the Flickr community and product.
The attention to detail from Charis is phenomenal, just have a look at these:
Twin-Lens Reflex Camera
Olympus-like DSLR Modern Camera
Canon-like DSLR Camera
Nikon DSLR Camera
Medium Format Camera (like the Hasselblad)
Fujifilm Point n’ Shoot
Leica Light Point n’ Shoot
Sony Point n’ Shoot Camera
Nikon Compact SLR camera
The Avatar Collection
