February 8, 2017
Round Icons announced that they have acquired worldwide reproduction and expansion rights to the Diversity Avatars collection from Iconify.it, LLC. Under the agreement Iconify.it, LLC retains limited rights to continue making and selling avatars in the original style.
The Diversity Avatars collection is an exploration of the beauty and diversity of people and cultures around the world. The collection depicts the beauty of all people regardless of race, gender, religion, ethnicity, or sexual identity.
Scott Lewis of Iconify.it, LLC, the creator of the collection said of the sale, “The Diversity collection is a work of passion for me and in many ways the culmination of my creative drive with regards to my icon designs. Unfortunately, I don’t have the time to explore it properly and I was afraid of it withering on the vine, so to speak. Ramy and I have spent many hours talking about our shared views on life, people, and design. I feel certain Ramy is the is the right person to take the vision and grow it to its full potential while remaining true to the original idea. Ramy and I are of like mind on so many things that I know the concept is in great hands … although it is a bit painful to let it go and not be involved”.
Ramy Wafaa of Round Icons added, “This collection is such a creative way to explore people’s beauty, diversity, and humanity. I was amazed the first time i saw Scott’s avatars and it was his work that actually got us to start talking, which eventually developed to a strong friendship. The idea of this collection is brilliant and we at Round Icons intend to explore even further the beauty of the human face and the individuality of each of us while also creating a useful resource for designers, journalists, and organizations. We’re planning a massive Avatars pack that will really stand out in a way that no avatar collection ever before”.
