I am curious who designs all the various hats for winter bash events on SE websites. Were these hat custom made for SE, or did the website utilize some pre-existing content? I am really curious about the identity of designers, so I will rephrase my question in an elaborate from:
Does the administration of StackExchange.com have a team of designers working for them, do they hire third party company, or did they buy set of pre-designed images from someone?
If the answer is either third party or pre-designed content, then I may as well just cut to the cheese and straightforwardly ask:
Who makes the hats?!
