Google Chrome OS — Illustration system
We created an intuitive illustration system to empower and guide Google Chrome OS users throughout their entire digital experience

We created for the Google operating system - Google Chrome OS, an imagery that is consistent with the brand and also empowering, scalable and inclusive for the users. We designed almost 50 assets, a sticker sheet, countless gestures, icons, objects and devices, plus a dark mode to include in this library designed to delight and to instruct. 
Connect your phone

Hands & gesture — We had fun designing hands and gestures that would render and setup the onboarding phase and the interface easier to navigate for users. Animation always helps so we applied our motion design magic to some of them as well.
Setup your fingerprint
Fingerprint scan
Back & Home gestures

Spot illustrations — We created a range of minimal spot illustrations available in two different color palettes: various shades of blue or multicolored.

Devices — Google has an impressive family of products and devices and we got to illustrate plenty of them for this project. We explored two different approaches: a detailed, close-up version and a simpler, more minimalistic one to suit the smaller devices or bird’s eye views.
High and low details

Dark mode — It’s been an exciting opportunity to develop this illustration system both in a light mode and a dark one. It was the first time we were entering dark territory and we had fun adjusting outline weights, skin colors and an array of other details for each of the two modes.

Guidelines — For every illustration system we design, we make sure to create and share specific guidelines with the brand’s team, allowing them to create future assets that would perfectly fit their current scenario. From ratios to various Dos and Don’ts, we make sure to cover the essential guiding principles for a coherent, constant and functional look.

Thanks for watching!
