Create Airbnb is a fully-responsive site for community-driven content. It helps our users share stories about their experiences through Airbnb and encourages our community to make their own symbol of belonging. Since every single Airbnb trip is unique, we wanted to give our users a way to express that individuality through our symbol. We’re incredibly grateful that some of our favorite artists contributed to the project. You’ll find close to 1,000 illustrations made by some of our favorite artists including Tim Goodman, Jesse LeDoux, and Will Bryant. We also had some terrific illustrations from Agnes, Andrea and Fanny – all designers on our team.
My role: Directed all illustration assets. Managed the process from beginning to end in engaging with illustrators across the global design community. Drafting legal contracts, liaising with illustrator agents, giving and managing creative feedback. Lead and oversaw all 1,000+ asset passover to interactive agency partner, R/GA.
