In the previous post, I talk about the aesthetic approaches that have developed in this version, and the ways I have intentionally tried to create a new cohesive vision of how to design Mutant Standard emoji. In this post, I’m going to go through the new emoji designs like I normally do with these posts! […]
In this post, I’m going to go over the variety of realisations I’ve made in my design process that have led to the various significant improvements that were made in 0.4.0.
CW: I talk about mental health a little in this post. I need to make changes to how I’m working on Mutant Standard: I wanna move Mutant Standard away from batched releases (0.3.0, 0.3.1, 0.4.0, etc.) to something like a rolling release, where updates are smaller and incremental (possibly just named after dates ie. ‘2019-06-29’). […]
Here’s my sketches for 0.3.1! In general, looking back, I feel like a lot of what I did here was continue the new thinking that was started in 0.3.0, but was constrained with the design system baggage of earlier versions, and I feel that a good few of these just don’t reach their potential as […]
Hey, I’m semi-back from my break and other things I need to do in my life, giving you a plan of what I’d like to do with the project over the next few months. Hopefully it will go to plan this time! ^^’
This has been such a long release in the making, and it’s finally here!
Patreon has started unveiling their plans for what basically every VC-funded commerce/financial support platform does once their investors start demanding more – make a pointless, multi-tier funhouse version of their platform. As far as I can tell, none of these proposed changes should affect any of you and they shouldn’t affect the percentage of money […]
0.3.2 was cancelled I did mention on social platforms but not this blog (I make weird assumptions sometimes of when I should and shouldn’t make a blog post about something :S). There was too much R+D required for 0.4.0 so I cancelled 0.3.2 and am instead just moving all of those planned improvements (such as […]
Hey! After some research, I managed to (semi) successfully manually compile a Mutant Standard emoji font. This is really exciting! This was a small test to test my (still incomplete) research though – it only contains two emoji. Like how orxporter recolours and exports thousands of emoji, we need software that can process and put […]
(This is a mirror of the Patreon post of the same name because I realised that relying on Patreon is a bad idea but I didn’t wanna delete that post either) Hey, I’m starting to get into emoji making some more again, it’s still really hard and exhausting after my burnout in November, but I […]
