The new Apple emojis are here, hooray! As some of you may know, I’ve played a small role in making some of these emojis. I’ve designed dozens of emojis for proposals to the Unicode Consortium (the group that oversees and approves new emojis). After a proposal is approved, my mockups go to designers at the different vendors (Apple, Google, Twitter, Facebook, etc.) to use as guidance. These designers then create their own emojis to fit in with their style and platform.
I thought it would be fun to compare my proposal designs to the official art from Google and Apple, which you can see here.
So far, sixteen of the emoji proposals I’ve designed for have been approved by Unicode and are available for you to use on your emoji keyboard—with many more to come! .
