iCub icon

A friendly icon for a friendly robot


GitHub: link


Pushed by the need of having a nice, clean and well designed icon for the iCub humanoid robot (to be used in presentations and websites), I have developed a minimal, nice looking icon to be used throughout my projects (and freely available to others). It is a striking departure from the previous logo, whilst maintaining the same friendly and cartoonish appearance.

The icon is freely available on GitHub, in both png and svg format. It was positively welcomed by many people in the iCub Facility, and over the time it has been used in many different projects and websites.
