As an entrepreneur, I am totally jealous of Twitter. I mean, it is such a simple concept, and it has developed into one of the most popular social networking tools in the history of the internet. Why didn’t I think of that?? Actually, I don’t think my feeble little brain could have come up with such a clever idea. That being said, I do think I have the design chops to come up with something just as cool as the Twitter logo. I mean, it’s not that complicated.
Anyway, Twitter has been wildly popular for many years now. And if it’s high-resolution Twitter logo’s you need, I’ve got an entire collection of them right here for you. The images in this collection convey popular Twitter metaphors such as security, account deletion, and networking. There are two sets:
- The new Twitter logo
- The old twitter logo
In addition to all those Facebook logo illustrations I created, this entire collection of Twitter logo graphics follow the same format. I’ve taken some liberties with their brand image a little (shame on me!), making the logos very metallic – almost medallion-like. They render very nicely that way, with a lot of glossy reflections and massive amounts of bling.
The all new Twitter logo
The latest logo of Twitter is brilliant in my opinion. They totally capitalized on the tweet metaphor, and came up with a clean Twitter bird graphic that looks great in pretty much any context.
The only downside to the new logo is how it translates into a 3-D model. I’m fairly certain that the Twitter team never intended for this logo to be modeled in 3-D, but I gave it a shot anyway. As you can see, it’s such a simple shape that I had to end up placing it on a flat surface within a physical object for the renderings.
The old Twitter logo
The images below are part of a collection that I created way back in about 2011 or so. The original logo for Twitter was a simple lowercase T, which lend itself quite nicely for doing 3-D renderings of. Yes, it looks somewhat dated now due to its overall thickness and weight. However, from a historical perspective, it’s neat to take a look back and see how this massive brand started.
The next one is especially classic: twitter wasn’t even a thing when the first iPhone came out, but no matter. It’s a historically awesome illustration to say the least:
In conclusion, I had no idea that we as a society could be bothered enough to take time out of our busy days to jot down quick status updates for complete strangers to see. And yeah, I admit it. I’ve been finding it difficult to find just a few minutes a day to update my own twitter account lately.
I’d like to make a promise to be more active (starting like, now), but I know me. And I know that I’d rather be spending my time making logos for brands like twitter than telling you what my last bowl movement was like. That’s how I roll.
