💬 The Wrap
Just a quick note to let you know: the emoji list for 2018 was announced today by Unicode.
After a year in various draft stages, the final set includes popular additions such as redheads, curly hair, a cupcake, softball, lacrosse, and emojis to represent knitting, sewing, and more. Today we're very happy to be showing all our sample images for the first time.
Each year we create these in an Apple-like style to show how we think the new emojis could look when on our phones. Thanks to the talented Joshua Jones (aka mindfad who is the person behind the pixels.
In total 157 new emojis are on the list for Emoji 11.0 and these will come to phones later in the year.
