Animals created by perfect circles, just like Twitter’s logotype

Did you know that the shape of the logotype of Twitter (the Twitter bird) was created by using 13 perfect circles? Inspired by this challenge, Toronto-based artist Dorota Pankowska has created 13 animal illustrations using the same technique: achieving the desired shape just by using 13 circles.
The results are stunning, and she has also included a gif version so that we can see where those thirteen circles are really hiding. Even apparently almost-straight lines are the result of a giant circle, so this is a very clever exercise of graphic design abilities and imagination.


The Twitter logo was revamped back in 2012, with a flattering new angle and a swifter silhouette. This was achieved by this 13-circle technique, which (when used correctly) can give off awesome results, like the ones created by Pankowska.
