$6 for the Twitter Homepage Graphic

Here’s something to Tweet about.

The 84th most popular website in the world Twitter snaged Simon Oxley’s cute, whimsical bird graphic for $6 through iStockphoto. Talk about a bargain.

An iStockphoto spokeswoman told that Twitter paid between $10 and $15 for Oxley’s bird design. Considering that iStockphoto pays 20 or 40 percent to content creators depending on their membership, Oxley made somewhere between $2 and $6 for designing the Twitter homepage graphic. Carolyn Davidson, who famously earned only $35 for designing the Nike swoosh, actually made out pretty well by comparison.

Tuesday Afternoon inspiration

We are really digging Denise Fort’s work on anything she decides to draw on. Her work is simple in the sense of its black and white linear approach, but her patterns with infused imagery are quite amazing. We’ve pulled a few of her creations to give you a taste. If you are still jonesing for more visit her here.
