I was looking to find certain type of icon styles and after a long search, i have got its name as "MBE Style" in dribbble. It is in such a huge trend. I am trying to learn its history. So can anyone help me answer these questions?

  1. Why is it called MBE style?
  2. Is there a particular standard to work on these icons?
  3. Who found this trend?

Note: This is not a duplicate of this question

I am trying to understand its basics. Your answers are much appreciated. Thanks.

  • have you tried asking that MBE user on dribble? I'd start from there.

There appears to be a user on dribbble who's username is MBE. I get the sense this is named as a reference to his own style of illustration.

In which case there is likely not a formal standard for it.
