Yahoo has been in the news a lot lately - after purchasing Tumblr for $1.1bn, the web giant has been reinventing its image. Since going purple, it's surprised us with a number of new design creations and we love these camera icons for the newly redesigned Flickr.
The company approached Greece-based designer Charis Tsevis to create the new avatars for its photo-sharing site. Influenced by Aeropittura (a Futurist aeropainting technique), Movimento Arte Concreta (the Milan-based Movement of Concrete Art) and other mid-century movements, the illustrations described by Tsevis as "Neo-Furutism" or "Neo-Cubism".
We love the use of geometric shapes tied in with bright colours and a fun approach to Flickr's photocentric persona. The series includes retro cameras, as well as DSLRs, smartphones and Fujifilm products.
