What inspired this design is my University's mascot, a common cardinal bird. As a designer, I was intrigued with the idea of how the cardinal bird would look like as a Squishable. In creating the design, I broke down the shapes that made up the bird, edited it down to simple shapes, and into a cartoon form until the design was achieved. Given that Valentine's day was also a month away at the time of creation. The black part that rounds the eyes of the cardinal was made into a heart shape. Keeping in mind to keep the design for any season, by keeping it simple and cute looking to appeal to the young and young adult demographic.
