I was poking around the user profile settings of the Smart Life app. This is the app I use to connect a couple of IoT devices that I own. To my surprise, the profile icon selections available look shockingly similar to the profile icons of the Framework employees. See a screenshot below. Some of these profile icons look they were ripped straight from FW with some minor editing. Some icons appear to be originals, but tailored to FW’s playful cartoon art style. It seems that they were trying to offer a diverse selection at the very least. Imitation is a form of flattery I suppose?
Framework makes them using an avatar creator service, so my guess would be that SmartLife just used the same one, lol.
