Peachies
– Animated sticker set
Bachelor’s thesis
2016


In text-based conversation we lose some important aspects of face-to-face communication: facial expressions, gestures and tonal changes. This thesis touched the subject of expressing these nonverbal cues in instant messaging through stickers.

In Peachies, each individual character is designed from scratch to best support the emotion or message the sticker is meant to convey – as opposed to sticker sets traditionally designed around a pre-existing character(s).
