New Emoticons for Skype

01 Aug 2011

Hicksdesign was commissioned to overhaul Skype's emoticon set. Taking the original 19px sized icons, and creating a series of sizes for each based on a 20px and 30px grid. The emoticons were then animated by Julian Frost, who really brought them to life.

You can read more about the process on the journal as well as download the slides from a talk I gave about the process for Milton Keynes Geek Night.
