[Frames] Now on Houseparty

Set the Scene

Houseparty is taking your video chat to the next level with [Frames], a new feature that lets you bling out your background with curated art from indie artists. New [Frames] will be rotated in and out, so make sure to check back in on the regular!

Frames

All of the [Frames] in Houseparty are original collections created by talented, independent artists. Every other week, we will drop a new collection by a new artist in the app. To kick it off, @lebassis has blessed us with his sensational pop-art style. Leandro Assis is a Brazilian artist and art director based in Rio. He i’s known for super bold letterings, colorful palettes and playful illustrations. Above all, he’s passionate about opportunities that allow him to use design as a vehicle to talk about the things he cares for most, such as black culture, gender topics and LGBTQIA+ rights.

A note from the artist, about the collection - “When thinking about these first 15 [Frames], I recalled all my sticker references from the teenage years, with those mega notebooks full of stickers that I loved to collect but never had the courage to use! I imagined a very fun vibe that could work for all types of people. I want to make people happy on calls at this very difficult time.”

Look out for more artists being introduced to the app every other week! The @jordandebney and @giordano collections drop next!
