My biggest client to date and one that I’m still working with is Snapchat. I started working with them September 2017 when they contacted me and asked if I would be interested in creating geofilters and stickers for their application.
I’ve worked on a few projects with them based on locations. To date I’ve created stickers for three countries; Australia, French speaking countries and the UK and I’ve also worked on a few smaller projects. This work really made me work on my hand lettering and I’ve quite frankly loved working with them.
My largest project so far with Snapchat, they asked me to create well over 100 stickers and geofilters for Australia. Obviously I’m based in the UK, and I’ve never been to Australia, so I had to do a lot of research and quite a lot of asking questions with my Australian friends.
I created stickers and geofilters for various events that took place in Australia but if you look through you can get a good idea of what events were covered.
Russia was a lot of fun to illustrate as the architecture is really complicated but beautiful and of course I don’t speak or know any Russian language. So I had to do a lot of research and each sticker took a while to illustrate.
I was asked to create around 100 stickers and geofilters for Snapchat’s French speaking audience. Each batch had a slightly different theme, some were for days and time of the week, others had themes, but all were a lot of fun to create.
After illustrating France and Australia I was asked which country I would like to illustrate so I chose the UK. Why the UK? Well it has been my home for the last decade so I ended up creating a load of stickers related to holidays in the UK.
I knew absolutely nothing about Ramadan before being given this project but I do have some friends that take part in Ramadan and of course the internet is full of lots of information so I created the below.
