I had the incredible opportunity to work alongside Studio Tendril on the next generation of emojis for Microsoft. From the project’s inception, I played a role in the exploration of 3D design and animation direction for the emojis, and I was also an integral part of team responsible for bringing the emoji system to life.
My responsibilities encompassed the design and creation of over 400 emojis, spanning from delicious food emojis to expressive smileys and diverse human characters. My involvement in this project enabled me to showcase multi-disciplinary design skills while contributing to an innovative and captivating aspect of the digital world.
