This little owl was originally created to decorate an article, written by IO-member Jens R. Nielsen in the magazine Eselsohr, the IO-logo was supposed to be part of it. After that the illustration was used on the cover of a flyer, advertising the new IO-sedcards. Then the owl found itself in yet another article in the magazine VISUELL, were the IO itself was introduced. And last but not least, the original illustration served as a birthday present to my former colleague Iris Kuhlman, grafic designer for Der Spiegel. Not bad!
