I had the idea to design stickers based off the songs by Sleeping at Last, written about each of the 9 Enneagram types! You can find his songs and podcasts here: https://fanlink.to/sleepingatlastpodcast http://www.sleepingatlast.com/home-1
Each of Sleeping At Last’s songs are written intentionally, with details hidden beneath each lyric and meaning behind the musicality. I wanted to create my stickers with the same intentionality and care towards each design choice.
Here’s my Enneagram type 9 sticker and the reasons behind it:
circle because nine's care so much about the people around them and listen intently and care so much.
they care about everyone else’s happiness over their own and when everything is balanced and calm, they are most content.
yellow because it is such a soft color, symbolizing the sun and how it wakes us up in the morning as was the driving lyric in the song (“wake up”)
the half colored circle points to the song lyric that says “i’ve been less than half myself for most of my life”
the low contrast in colors represents how nines love to avoid conflict and keep things timid and peaceful
the soft details within each word represent how nines are very observant and detailed people; they see the deep meaning behind things and find the beauty in it
the leaves branching off the ampersand are olive branches which are known to be a symbol of peace
