I’m stoked to finally share some of the early explorations for Nextdoor
’s illustration style. This board didn’t cut it but it’s too cute to be left in the archive folder so I decided to color some of the sketches and bring the characters to life. The concepts were inspired by one of my favorite children’s book authors, Dr. Seuss. ✨
As the product is about bringing neighbors together and helping them build strong communities, for the final style we chose something less abstract to make sure that the characters are relatable and diverse.
It’s been an absolute pleasure to be part of the project and I can’t wait to share more of the in-depth character exploration and the final illustrations!
