Swarm Stickers

One of the iPhone apps I use most is Foursquare's Swarm. I've been checking in to places for years, so I was honoured to be asked to give their beloved stickers an upgrade.

A refresh

The stickers have been a vital part of Swarm for a while now and, with the re-introduction of mayorships, Foursquare wanted to convert your old badges to new stickers.

One of the main aims of this refresh was to add more 'life' to the stickers. I made them juicier and cartoonier so that they would leap off the screens, together with adding faces to many of the inanimate object to give them a bit of character.

Still wanting to keep a bit of familiarity with the old favourites, we added a bunch of new (and sometimes crazy) stickers to the collection. The list is growing steadily with more and more being released every so often, especially around holidays, so be sure to check in!

Getting to work on something that is used by millions of people all around the globe is a fantastic feeling, especially when you see people use your creations out in the wild.
