Keybase is an end-to-end encryption chat and cloud storage system on mobile and desktop.
During my time at Keybase, I worked on creating a uniform style for the icons and illustrations within the app. I wanted to create brand consistency that would help foster trust and familiarity with users. The characters below were an exploration for the onboarding experience.
Characters were created for the onboarding experience. I tried out different expressions and made the style minimal.
I experimented with Keybase's limited color scheme of blue and orange to create more characters.
A quick exploration of how avatars could be animated in the onboarding experience.
...and a wizard.
A revamp of the icons in the Files section of the app was made in a flat style. The icons were created in different sizes along with error and approved states. Different sizes were made created for mobile and desktop.
As an added protection to your account, you can approve the new device Keybase is downloaded on and revoke if your device is compromised. I designed the new devices in the new flat style.
Over time with your account, you may revoke and download Keybase on different mobile and desktop devices. To differentiate one mobile from another, colorful background screens were created. At least twelve backgrounds were made for both mobile and desktop. The mobile background would be a smaller version of the desktop screen.
