This Is the Taco Emoji We’ve All Been Waiting for
Last week, we (like the rest of the emoji-obsessed) world swooned over a brand new set of 22 emoji, created by Julia Heffernan for GroupMe. From tacos to unicorns to a smiley face wearing a speedo, this set of visual brilliance fulfills some serious communication needs in the emoticon department.
But, what’s behind all these genius emoji? Especially the taco!? I sat down with emoji-maker Julia over a cross-country GroupMe chat (obvs!) to get the scoop on her creative process. And spoiler alert: You are definitely going to start using GroupMe more, if only to use the taco and unicorn emoji ;)
We kicked things off with the tastiest new emoji of all. We can relate to taco love — tacos are definitely our office’s favorite food group. And anytime we get them for lunch, serious high-school-cafeteria-style lines ensue.
That’s right. The Make It Rain emoji was a USER request! What are these GroupMe users texting about?!
The Selfie and Rock On emoji are pretty self-explanatory. But Face with Speedo and Thong Butt? More info needed.
True that, Julia — no one wants to use a peach for a butt emoji EVER AGAIN.
And finally, hard hitting questions regarding cheese, dinosaurs and the Deal With It dog.
