TALK EMOJI TO ME
Giemtori is an app that let's you talk to friends using emojis. Made by Ryan Kopisnky, and designed by Foremost, Giemtori is a fun brand that crosses language barriers, innovates on conversation, and let's people have fun while telling stories. The brandmark for giemtori was handcrafted with a custom typeface, and implements a smile to be friendly.
I developed an icon set for the brand that would double as UI elements for the app. They were simple and fun, resembling confetti. The utilitarian aspects come through form.
The entire app was wireframed by Ryan and scaffolded out by me, with interaction design at the forefront of the conversation. The application is split between lower and upper halves that are prioritized for access by height, and could easily be adjusted with a double tap of the home button on most smartphones. You can now download the final product using the button below! The onboarding sequence was removed for final launch by Ryan, but you can see it in the prototype that I made below the app launch button.
I had made a custom branded quick launch site for the app, complete with download call to actions and an email updates signup to capture users pre-launch.
I began work on a social campaign featuring emoji stories on accompanying user uploaded images to show how imagery could be used to tell about events in new fun ways.
