Using emoji is cool. They are great to express your feeling of Love, your Anger and even show Middle fingers to other people without typing a single word, they work everywhere and they are built into your phone. But, if you have heard about the Unicode Concernotium, you probably know that creating a new emoji is not at all funny. There is a long list of guidelines to be followed and there is no easy way to suggest a cool new idea of emoji that you may have.
A new website called EmojiRequest tries to eliminate the last point. Launched today, the site aims to let people request new emoji, create a concept art for them and also let other people vote for it to be selected.
The concept of the site is pretty simple after a new emoji idea is submitted, it is checked if it will pass Unicode’s requirements or not. Then a mockup is made and it is shown on the site where other people can vote for it. If a mockup gets enough Upvotes, the site requests Unicode and if all goes well, you will have it soon. Keep in mind that even though a request has good amount of votes, it is still up to the Unicode Concernotium to decide.
Have an idea of emoji that can break the internet? you better reach out to the site.
