Orxporter – the software that’s used to batch recolour and export all of Mutant Standard’s emoji – is now open source!
Happy halloween!~ This release contains fun new objects, furry emoji and more as well as introducing a bunch of exciting new package types and some unexpected technical improvements.
CW: the generic state of world politics, violence, a degree of pessimism.
The prototypes for the sticker sheets came the other day, and I’m very happy with them!
I often hear a particular undercurrent of attitudes or beliefs when I hear various discussions about Unicode codepoints and Unicode emoji symbols, and to me, as an illustrator and a designer (ie. a visual communicator), and someone who is trying to navigate their place in the world of languages, I find that these attitudes usually come from a place of privilege, and/or a lack of knowledge about how graphic communication actually works.
I think the notion that Unicode Emoji is something that can be permanent, stable and reliable, doesn’t make sense and isn’t realistic. And even if you could make it that way, that’s not a situation anyone should actually want.
Hey, this is a little thing to give anyone doing development work with Mutant Standard emoji an advance warning for 0.3.1, which is currently expected to be released late October.
This alert only applies to codepoint packages.
