Bubby the Dog
I waded into the newly created sticker economy as an opportunity to learn about the App Store design process. My mvp was a 40 sticker set – 20 images of a silly cartoon dog, and 20 typographic statements.
Silly stickers need a silly name, so I titled the main character Bubby the Dog. I researched Apple’s design guidelines, including details on creating sticker apps in XCode, which I was unfamiliar with using at the time. I designed the series of stickers from sketch to pixel. I created the sticker app in XCode with few problems. Testing resulted in several iterations, some minor tweaks to improve the images in iMessage. I then published the stickers to the App Store for iMessage without entirely breaking the internet.
