Introducing CyanogenMod’s new Finalized Mascot “Cid” by Caio Alves
CyanogenMod introduced its new Mascot which was named as rAndy previously,today all the finishing touches have been applied and CM team has introduced the Finalized mascot as “Cid”.
To remind you Cid aka rAndy was originally created by a person named Caio Alves,CM team liked the design on the basis of its simplicity of design and decided to take it ahead as its new mascot.
Few words from the creator himself :
“When I first started working on the new mascot I had this vision of making something that could also work as a polished and modern logo. I came up with two humanoid figures whose bodies took inspiration from heroes action figures and resembles the original Android robot. For the heads I started with two ideas: a power socket and a simplistic round head. I wanted CM’s own robot to feel like an evolution of what we had before, giving it its unique look – and it’s a huge challenge to try to evolve something people know and love.”
There are mixed reactions about the choice of design from the CyanogenMod community members.We will like the ShrewGeek.com visitors to write their views about the new mascot in the comment section below.
