Ginger Emoji Designs Revealed: Will New Sprites Emerge Next Year?by

It’s hard to believe that a few pixels on a smartphone screen created such a stir online that 21,000 people jumped behind a cause to demand a change – but it’s thanks to Apple’s recent changes made to their emoji library, which saw a greater variety of race and diversity sweep into the existing icon collection, that such debates have arisen. The reason? While Apple’s latest emoji pack may have expanded to incorporate a wider collection of faces, many were concerned that ginger people were yet to be included. The lack of redhead icons prompted a petition to be raised and, it is thought, plans for such icons to be unveiled next year – and in the meantime, a designer has created mock-ups of what the potential emoji could look like.

Tweeting collections of potential iOS icons for future release, Emojipedia founder Jeremy Burge showed off followers what redheaded emoji could look like – along with a document that established a proposal to try and tackle a final look for the emoji. While it’s not clear why redhead emoji are yet to enter the iOS catalogue, it seems to be the case that ginger Apple users everywhere could be expecting representation in a future update. Emoji have become such an integral part of our culture and communication that the debate over ginger icons have led to the aforementioned petition and what appears to be an acknowledgment from Apple themselves – would such a shift have been predictable even a few years ago?

Apple have made big advancements in terms of their technology and user interface, and expanding the emoji library comes with iOS updates, too – as more and more people around the world continue to communicate via tiny images as well as text and photos. Language is evolving all the time, even while we may not realize it!

Emoji are everywhere – and the news that ginger icons could be coming soon will likely fantastic news for all of those who signed their names – and millions everywhere may well be turning out in droves to see the winking and smiling icons get their first movie in just a month or so. The Emoji Movie has already made headlines on sheer concept alone – and this news only helps to cement the idea that emoji really are part of our everyday language. How will language evolve next?
