Mutant Standard 0.1.0 – The Sketches

Quick guide! Every picture of each file is a snapshot of that file of how it is viewed in Affinity Designer (so you can see each emoji artboard and it’s title). You can click on each picture to get a bigger version. The captions underneath each picture are the filenames of that sketch file. They’re […]

Mutant Standard 0.1.0

As you might imagine, given my current situation, I’ve been kind of scatterbrained. I was in the middle of working on some emoji that are quite close to ready a day or so ago, but then I realised that I had lost track of what I already made (which is unusual for me, but this has […]

Overview of the production process

Here’s part 2 of me trying to give you an idea of how I make emoji, so you can really understand the process pics that I will be posting soon. Because Mutant Standard is a project where I’m constantly making little pictures, a production pipeline is needed to make this run more smoothly. It helps […]

My Tools

So, this project broke $100/mo a few weeks ago in pledges, which means we broke my first goal and I will start uploading my sketches and process pics with each new release. But before I do that, I figured it would be a good idea to try to contextualise these sketches and process pics by […]

January 2018 Plan

Happy new year. I wish I could say that things are going to go off to a great start, but not for me it seems. (The next version will be called 0.1.0. Unfortunately this won’t be because it will be getting codepoints, it just means a variety of internal structure improvements and unified colour palettes. […]

New Mastodon Account

Ever since I started the project, I made my personal Mastodon account (@dzuk@a.weirder.earth) the official account for news, but it’s also a personal account where I post a lot of other stuff. I have always been on the fence about making a separated account for a variety of weird reasons, but now I’ve decided it’s finally […]

Long-term goals

Happy holidays, everyone! I hope you’re doing okay, wherever you are. As 2018 is coming along and because I’ve never *really* done this before, it would be a good idea to roundup long-term goals for Mutant Standard other than just making more emoji, both custom and Unicode Standard. TL;DR: I want to try to put […]

Website update is out!

This should be the definitive update. I won’t need to be scrambling around when it comes to adding things and I shouldn’t need to really do much with it for quite a long while. It’s mobile friendly and it’s also something that I hope is easy to understand enough that you can share it with […]

Paying it forward

So as everybody hopefully knows by now, I was planning on just making emoji all this month until the holidays because I was doing a lot of stuff not related to emoji last month. This changed all of a sudden just after I released 0.0.9 because Patreon decided to do what it did (which it then […]
