Shinborne Creative is a Cleveland, Ohio-based design studio with a knack for cutesy, yet punchy design.

The 'Instagram Logo Mascot' is, as its name suggests, based on the social media photo-sharing site's emblem. However, it modifies the logo and adds some arms and legs to create a spunky little character that captures all the fun and spontaneity that is Instagram.

As the studio explains on their Behance page, the model is only a concept presently, but they are reaching out to designers and artists, seeking to make it a reality.

Although many people consider toys to be exclusively for children, design studios like Shinborne creative are blurring the line between corporate, business-focused graphic design and children's toys.
