12 Designs for Penguin Awareness Day

January 19, 2011

In honor of Penguin Awareness Day today, I present to you 12 diverse works by different artists of the dapper bird. I like how these designers played around with the black-and-white coloring of penguins: They took away outlines or amplified the contrast. I think designers like to work with penguins because sometimes they’re cartoonish, and sometimes they’re elegant in their natural setting, making them appealing to young and old alike. Penguins are so universally beloved that I’ve seen designs printed on greeting cards, invitations, T-shirts, hang tags and posters.
