Concept development and art direction for eBay's AI-powered commerce bot for FB Messenger.
I worked closely with eBay's design, product and brand teams to help develop this product from concept to launch and helped to define the art direction within the limited platform of Messenger.
Through conversational chat, the bot will show you a series of collections based on categories or will help you find something specific. The goal is to cull through the inventory to quickly serve up the best of eBay.
Using only images sourced from eBay.com, I was responsible for setting the art direction style for the Collections.
Every week, new collections are added to the experience on a variety of trending topics (Trump piñatas) to standard staples (acoustic guitars).
Established minimal, but playful illustration style for animated gifs within the experience.
