About Helen Gizi
Helen is a self-taught graphic designer with over 8 years of experience in the field. She runs a small blog providing free vector sets called pinkmoustache.net. Dealing mostly with print work and tight deadlines, she doesn’t have much time for personal projects. She’s quite comfortable working with both Adobe Illustrator and Corel Draw as she believes that these are just tools and nothing more. She does everything from scratch with a blank piece of paper and a pencil. Graphic design by Spanish designers is her major source of inspiration, and she dreams of living in Spain one day.
Behind the Design
For the creation of these icons, Helen researched various images of sweets so she could have a better look at their shapes and colors. She then placed those images on a white canvas next to the original versions of the social icons. The idea was to match each sweet with an icon. It took about 5 hours to design them but she really enjoyed the process. The only problem she faced while creating these icons was that it made her feel hungry all the time.
