Bigshot Toyworks' suicidal interpretation of the iconic Twitter board covers the latest issue of Bloomberg Businessweek
. The magazine's cover story explores how the five-year old web startup survived internal turmoil, power outages, and an embarrassing security breach to finally become a successful, viable business.
Richard Turley, the Creative Director at Bloomberg,
approached Bigshot Toyworks to create the hilarious illustrations. It was a project the design firm could not pass up and after several fun brainstorming sessions with Turley, they came up with a series of eight illustrations. The Twitter bird is depicted trying to kill itself by hanging, poisoning, drowning, and more methods. Klim Kozinevich of Bigshot Toyworks says of the project, "I can't say enough about how much we love our work and the great fun it is to collaborate with such clever and creative people."Bloomberg Businessweek
