Sammy The Shark Gets A Birthday Makeover From Simon Oxley

Posted: July 10, 20141 min read

    Today we’re celebrating our 3rd year since becoming officially incorporated as a company in 2011. So much has happened since then. We went from a small 5 person team to a not-so-small 90 person company. Well actually, we went from a small 5 person team with a shark, to a not-so-small 90 person company… with a shark.

    If you haven’t yet met Sammy, he’s a big help when talking with our community. He’s there when we announce a new datacenter location, when we give thanks for all the love and support, and even when we’re partying down at SXSW.

    Now, after 3 years, 2 round raises, 2 million Droplets launched, and over 150,000 developers using our platform, Sammy feels a little more grown up.

    So we asked for help from Simon Oxley – designer of graphics and muppet mascots, creator of the original Twitter bird and Github’s Octocat – to give Sammy some special treatment. Now Sammy looks amazing and feels better than ever.

    Without further ado, here’s the new and improved Sammy The Shark:

    Here is a closer look at the new Sammy:

    Just because Sammy lives in the ocean doesn’t mean he can’t fly :)

    Or float…

    What would Sammy look like if he was swimming towards you? #notallthatscary

    Now that’s a good lookin’ shark.
