Intercom - An introvert's guide to collaboration


Intercom hired me to create and editorial illustration for their blog post, an introvert's guide to collaboration. I had so much fun with this illustration and wanted to inject some humour by having the introvert friend hiding in a plant. That kept me giggling while I sketched. The darker blobbed out area around the plant is the calm and peaceful space where the introvert feels comfortable, like a safe bubble. Then the section to the right is the intimidating 'collab zone', visual noise, conversation and collaborators busying up the space. I wanted to create a bold contrast between these two areas to emphasise how intimidating and overwhelming it can feel for an introvert to step out of their safe space.
