    See the design process behind Chicago's Instagram Geofilter Stickers by artist Maggie Sichter Enterrios.

I had the wonderful opportunity to create stickers for the ongoing implementation of geofilters in Instagram's story feature. 

Via Instagram: 

"If you live in or are traveling to Chicago, London, Madrid, or Tokyo, you'll also start seeing geostickers for your city over the coming days. All of the geostickers have been designed by local community members to help bring the cities they call home to life. You’ll be able to see the artist’s username when you tap the sticker, so you can learn more about their unique artwork."

I created original illustrations for several Chicago locations and simplified them for use in Instagram Stories. The drawings were featured in several publications including AdWeek, the Chicago Tribune, Refinery29 and on Instagram's Blog. I created the final drawings by finishing them in Procreate on iPad Pro with Apple Pencil, and the very talented Rio Chavez lent his Chicago photography as background for the stickers. 

Check out the process and final stickers below!
