For Immediate Release
New iMessage Stickers Made Just for New Yorkers
This Also is proud to announce the release of Real NYC, a new sticker pack for iOS 10 that’s made for New York locals. All 99 stickers were hand crafted from real photos of trash and ephemera from the streets of New York City, capturing everything from discarded chicken bones to Lady Liberty.
“More stickers and emoji of tourist traps doesn’t help anyone that lives here. We need stickers that capture the terrible, gritty reality of our city in ways that richly express our disturbing urban life” said sticker pack co-creator Brett Bergeron.
“Nobody has tried seriously to monetize all the chicken wings people throw away on our sidewalks,” added co-creator Brian Baker.
The sticker pack was made for iPhone and iPad users, who can find it on the App Store for 99 cents. If sales are strong, the creators promise to release a sticker pack for San Francisco that costs twice as much.
Real NYC was created by This Also, a design studio based in Brooklyn, NY. This is an independent project they launched to have a little fun alongside their consulting business, where they design products and services for clients such as Google, Xbox, and Spotify.
