Today is the day! HIBRID Talk is finally here you guys!!!
Ok, so I’m sure most of us have downloaded the new iOS 10 beta update since the recent release of it and the iPhone 7 about a month ago. With a number a new features, the options within text messaging seemed to be the biggest change for me. Taking photos while in a text, the instant ability to send GIFs, and options of personally written or drawn messages and designs. Doesn’t this last one seem like the perfect place for HIBRID?! We thought so too! With that, I don’t think I’ve ever been anymore EXCITED to share something with you guys more than this: Today we launched a new messaging sticker app called “HIBRID Talk”!
Remember this logo I was creating a few months ago? It was for my friends over at Bubinga! They are the digital agency and the other half of talent who has made this app come to life so beautifully and also a perfect example of my love for a two way collaborative relationship. When each brand can provide something to the other, it’s such a rewarding relationship that has endless, future possibilities. They came to me saying how fun it would be to see my handlettering in this format (which I obviously agreed) and from there, I was so excited, we made it happen as soon as possible!
Text message windows currently aren’t the coolest, or most interesting thing to look at right? We have the ability to do a lot more with this new update, but still…most of the time it’s words and little blue bubbles. BOOOORING. HIBRID Talk lets you add the fun, visual style of HIBRID’s hand lettering into your daily text messages making for a more fun and visually pleasing texting experience! This collection includes 15 black/white short phrase stickers, all hand-lettered by me! The following phrases are included:
- I love you
- Umm, no
- Oh hi!
- Thanks a ton!
- Just sayin
There’s also some more great news…we’ve already got out minds thinking on a 2nd, even more fun release! So… stay tuned for that! You can find HIBRID Talk available on The App Store for download here: HIBRID Talk by Courtney Shelton
NOTE: Once you have downloaded HIBRID Talk, you will not see a normal app icon on your phone like you do with Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc. You will need to go into one of your text messages and click the arrow over to where you can enter media, and select the “App Store” icon. From there, click the icon in the bottom left hand corner of your screen that looks like a grid. You should see the “HIBRID Talk” icon…click it, and all of the phrases will appear! Check out this visual guide below for further explanation!
