I’m currently diverting development attention away from forc (our WIP font creation tool) and onto what has become one of the roadblocks to making outputting standard Mutant Standard releases easy, which is our lovely workhorse exporting program called orxporter. Like a lot of things in Mutant Standard, reaching for new technical heights or features (crushed […]
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.
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 […]

I wanted to be super-satisfied with various core elements of the aesthetic and design philosophy so I could move on with bigger changes and more new emoji without feeling like I […]
Okay, here’s the next round of sketches!!!!
Here are all the sketches from 0.2.4, and a very long commentary. I am now making notes as I’m making the emoji, so giving you commentary is more efficient more detailed, and less scary to post at the end of a version because I have all the content already available. Remember, sketch file names are just […]
Here are the sketches behind the emoji in 0.2.3 and some of my commentary on how they went for this version. I think from now on, I will be batching the sketch posts to every few versions. It just works out easier for me to do it this way. Remember, the dates on each sketch […]
These were all spun off really quickly in the space of a few hours and mostly derivatives of other emoji, so there isn’t much in the way of process sketches. The bottom row is where the actual finished emoji sit. (This file also has a personal think_dzuk emoji and a think_mutant emoji which were made as […]
Here comes the last of the sketches of the most recent releases~*~
