The social app Clubhouse has stood out due to its rather unusual app icon from the very beginning. Instead of a logo icon, they have been using pictures of real life people. Who these people are and why there is a logo icon going around on the internet – we will tell you all about it.
Espree Devora – the first “face” of the Clubhouse App Icon
Espree Devora was one of the first people to be featured as the app icon of the Clubhouse app. She is known for her podcasts about topics in the tech industry. However, her company produces a variety of digital content to connect people in tech fields.
Bomani X – bringing “The Lion King” to Clubhouse
Bomani X is a guitarist and singer-songwriter, who initially used the social app to continue his art during the pandemic. However, the founder of “The Cotton Club” – a group within Clubhouse – has also inspired and organized major events on the app. For example, he brought artists together to reenact songs from “The Lion King” twice – and hit the maximum room capacity of 5,000 both times.
Axel Mansoor – from Lullabies to app icon
Axel Mansoor is a singer-songwriter, who, just like other artists, wanted to continue playing music during the global pandemic. He also started the “Lullaby Club” room and has been on a “virtual tour” making appearances in various rooms to promote his music.
