New Work: Facebook "Like" Sticker Set

I worked with Elizabeth Gilmore and Kyre Osborn, both on the Communication Design team at Facebook, to create a new sticker set. The ever-expanding set of messenger stickers is really diverse and impressive and Facebook wanted to utilize their well known "thumbs up" as a foundation for a new set.

The challenge was to create a set that utilized the simple hand, performing different tasks to express different messages and emotions. The set also needed to stay consistent with the style of the original, including line weight, color palette, and a consistent light source.

It was a really interesting challenge to reinterpret this iconic graphic and thanks to the team for bringing me on board to do it!
