Github’s Octocat was designed by Simon Oxley, alongside the white bird Twitter used (before they received a proper logo) as part of a usual routine of cranking out images for iStock.

Octocat is Github’s logo and trademark and here is used to illustrate a fictional character (John Smith) that used the { Personal } Jekyll Theme to build his website.
