As emoji usage increased for expression and communication, Twitter needed to create its own set. I was asked to create the style and decided a very simple design direction worked best given a very small size limitation at the time (16x16px). We hired IconFactory to then design the entire set based upon that style. During that process I coordinated internal team reviews, communicated revisions to the agency, and art directed individual 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 desktop web's emoji picker and worked with the team to finalize and launch the project.
