I'm trying to find an example of this shape online, but I don't know what to look for. It seems to be pretty popular in graphic design lately. It's a circle with a right angle in one corner. But when I search for that nothing comes up.

Thank you ahead of time!!

  • Uhm...I don't think this has a name :)) it's just a circle with a 90 degrees corner. That's all there is to it..

I would say it most closely resembles a teardrop shape. That's what it's referred to as within Microsoft PowerPoint:

Photoshop has a similar (yet not exactly the same) shape, they call it a raindrop.

A squircle and it's a real word.

    Yes a squircle is a real thing. but no.. the shape in the question bears zero resemblance to a squircle. It is most definitely not a squircle.
