Twitter Bird Sculpture

We transformed the 2D Twitter (now X) logo into a distinctive custom 3D sculpture for a BBC Panorama documentary.

The Brief

The client needed a sizeable Twitter bird sculpture as a key prop for the Panorama documentary “Elon Musk’s Twitter Storm,” filmed in San Francisco. The 3D sculpture of the Twitter (now “X”) logo bird demanded a specially designed stand for support, and its colour had to precisely match the ‘Twitter blue’ branding.

What We Did

We transformed the iconic flat blue Twitter (now X) logo into a unique custom 3D sculpture. Our skilled 3D artist digitally crafted the Twitter bird, envisioning the three-dimensional representation of wings, head, and body. Using biodegradable and sustainable PLA material, we 3D printed the sculpture and created a translucent pedestal for its display.

Our finishing artist meticulously colour-matched and painted the 3D Twitter bird sculpture in the signature ‘Twitter blue,’ employing sanding and refining techniques to achieve a smooth matte finish.


The 3D Twitter (now X) logo bird sculpture was gratefully received by the client and showcased in multiple scenes and locations in the Panorama documentary “Elon Musk’s Twitter Storm”. The twitter bird sculpture helped tell the story as a one-of-a-kind visual aid.
