Apple’s WWDC 2020 convention will be a remote, online-only event due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The decision keeps attendees safe, but it does have its downsides — namely, the social aspect of WWDC, where developers meet up to talk shop and swap swag, including app stickers and pins.
To keep the sticker-trading tradition alive in light of this year’s digital-only WWDC, app development studio Team Nighthawk teamed up with over ninety other app developers to create the Indie Sticker Pack. You’ll get more than 100 stickers representing more than 90 developers’s apps. Better yet, all of the proceeds will be split as equal donations to the Equal Justice Initiative and the World Health Organisation’s COVID-19 response fund.
You can buy the stickers as a physical pack for $19 that will be shipped to you in the near future (exact timing will depend on the volume of orders received and Team Nighthawk’s resources) and as a collection of digital stickers/icons that can be used in iMessage for $1.50 on the App Store.
Team Nighthawk outlined its commitment to transparency to ensure customers and developers will be able to see where the money is going, and it intends to post Twitter updates to keep everyone up to speed on production and expected shipping times. All of that is covered on the Indie Sticker Pack’s FAQ page. The Indie Sticker Pack page also has a “Support” link to reach out to Team Nighthawk via email if you have any questions.
It’d be neat to see similar communities put together packages like this for other events that have gone digital this year — such as a collection of pins for this year’s PAX attendees won’t be able to collect and trade them in-person like normal.
