If you couldn’t tell by now, we’re big fans of the agony-free, ecstasy-heavy travel search called Hipmunk. While the site is minimalist by design, it is indeed the small features that we love to see. With the new hotel search function, the Hipmunk mascot needed a makeover and we thought you’d like to see how it all happened.

Our thanks to Hipmunk’s Alexis Ohanian or the heads up. If you’re not familiar, Alexis is also the eyes behind the design of Breadpig and the Reddit logo.
