Update: Money is now guaranteed!
Our adorable smileys need an upgrade, and you have a chance to be the new father (or mother)!
For this contest, you'll be tasked to re-design 12 selected smileys (out of the 60 in total). The winner of this contest will be offered a contract to finish the remaining 60.
This is a rare opportunity to join the new Emoji One design team. Our current art was completed by one individual (found right here on 99 designs). As we evolve, our desire is to create a few valuable relationships and collaborate as a team. We're in this for the long haul and want to establish a deeper foot print worldwide in the emoji space.
-Finals delivered in SVG and PNG formats (SVG is more important).
-64x64px canvas with 2 pixel border (design shouldn't exceed 60x60).
-Snap-to-pixel, pixel perfect, where applicable (horizontal & vertical lines).
-Smileys: same circular shape with background color RGB (251, 191, 103).
-Should scale down well, as low as 16x16 pixels.
-Well crafted signature shapes for each mouth, eye, brow, etc. Our current art is a bit too freestyle.
-Infuse a unique lovable personality with modern style.
-We'll keep an open mind, however it's important we don't stray "too" far away from the style of our original art.
Want to show what else you can do? As a bonus, re-design (and include) a cat and/or monkey emoji. Show off your versatility! Even if we don't choose your smileys, we may still want to work with you. :)
