iMessage apps

Project overview

Modern communication apps are shipping increasingly rich features that allow users to express themselves in fun and creative ways. With the release of iOS 11, Apple introduced iMessage apps. As an avid iOS power user, I was eager to contribute to the ecosystem (and have some fun tinkering with Xcode).

Fun with illustration

Illustration was my first love in design. These days, I spend my time thinking through user flows and designing screens—so these apps have been a nice change of pace from my usual work. I love launching new packs and will likely release more in the future.

Currently available apps

The goal with these apps was to create personable sticker packs about subjects I love—hence, Broadway and science! These two sticker apps are available now in the App Store on iOS:

Broadway Stickers for iMessage
Science Stickers for iMessage

Science stickers

These stickers were a joy to draw and I'm looking forward to expanding the pack soon. My hope is that they'll help users express a love for nature and an appreciation for science. I loved developing this aesthetic while learning the app release process. You can also check them out on Product Hunt.

Broadway stickers

I married a musical theatre major, so Broadway is a big part of my life. The performing arts community doesn't often get digital products tailored just for them, so I enjoyed making these stickers for all the thespians out there. Broadway Stickers for iMessage are often found in the top 10 of the Music category in the iMessage App Store.
