It was really exciting for our company to get to take part in the Star Wars Takeover event that Google did during the launch of The Force Awakens.
Our involvement was coming up with the concepts and designs for the Google Maps elements.
My team and I got to be involved in much of the illustration and concept stages of the project.
We created concepts within every aspect of Google Maps; from the Chevron, Home/Work stickers, Location banners, Custom Pegs, Pegman, Loading Animations, and more.
Unfortunately, the final implementation for the app was minimal. It only ended up being the directions chevron and home/work stickers.
My team and I had less involvement in those particular elements, but we still got to concept and create a lot of really awesome Star Wars assets.
(Which unfortunately can’t be shown.)
