As emoji became more widely used for expression and communication, Twitter needed to solve a user problem and create it's own set. I was asked to create the style and because of a 16x16px size limitation, we decided on a very simple direction. Iconfactory was then hired to design the entire set based on that style. I coordinated internal team reviews, communicated revisions to agency designers and now update and create emoji illustrations as needed.
Timeline: 2.5 months
Deliverables: 872 emoji
Download the complete set on Github.
After the set was finished, I initiated the website's emoji picker and worked with the team to finalize and launch the project.
