The Knitting Ninja was designed as a character for the header of a german knitting and needlework blog. The design is no longer in use.
The brief was to create a header image that didn’t display the usual knitting or needlework clichés. The header image had to get the attention of the visitor, so the initial thought was that it had to be simple in form, easily recognizable but still unusual for the niche.
The Knitting Ninja combines skills in different needleworks, which are taught in the blog through tutorials, and turn the readers into ninjas themselves. And he is also someone one wouldn’t associate with knitting or sewing.
