Philadelphia 76ers Emojis and Social Night
So, the Sixers reached out to me like, "Aye Rob! We need emojis." And I thought, "Emojis made on the iPad Pro? Let's go!"
I never made an emoji set or know how it's done, so I did a little research and found out the basics from a friend, Shyama Golden. Here's a behind scenes look at what was done.
(FYI: This is not a tutorial!)
Above: A list was given of the players, poses and items wanted in the emoji set. Here are screenshots of Franklin (mascot) and two player in Adobe Illustrator Draw CC. To add flavor, I added half-tone gradients for hair. Gradients were made in illustrator saved as .png files and changed into workable vectors in Adobe Capture CC's Shape component. This enabled me to use and manipulate them in Adobe Draw.
Above: The full initial emoji set via Adobe Draw gallery. The .png files were sent to the Sixers and…
Delivered to the app developers to be implemented in to the Sixers' app.
Sixers Social Night
The images were used throughout the event on shirts, posters, photo booth, and large heads. Even Carson Wentz got in on the action. (see below.)
