Breaking Down Racial Barriers in Emojis
How the African-American inventor of diverse emoji is now using them to get rid of COVID-19
iDiversicons is the groundbreaking inclusive emoji that changed how Silicon Valley saw the world. We did more than just introduce revolutionary new skin tones…we also introduced gender neutral, biracial, couples, families, gender variations, hair, gestures and other new ways for people to truly express themselves. Today, our life’s mission is to help as many different people as possible truly express themselves, creating a sense of inclusiveness for all.”
Shouldn’t the emoji that speaks for you, look like you?
That’s exactly the idea behind iDiversicons, the World’s First Diverse Emoji. In fact, we invented the five-skin tone standard now used by Apple and Google.
And now, to make our emoji even more inclusive, we’re turning to GoFundMe to help LIFT iDiversicons to the next level and beyond—making it a household name for everyone to share in its success.
With your generosity, we can develop a new Android keyboard, animated GIFs, and a wider range of diverse emoji for you to choose from. Truly grateful for your support. Here’s our campaign link: gofundme.com/help-make-emoji-more-diverse
Inventor of the First Five Skin Tone Emoji celebrates Five-Year Anniversary. iDiversicons™ is Still Touching Lives Today, with our Disability Pride Emoji and New GIFs
iDiversicons™ was the first native mobile app to offer a wide range of diverse emoji characters. The company is responsible for the ‘Five Skin Tone Standard,’ which allows users to select from five desired skin tone modifiers for the people emoji. That innovative concept has been adopted and implemented by Unicode, Apple, Google, and others.
In fact, Unicode has approved over 500 of iDiversicons’ emoji. Unicode President Mark Davis praised iDiversicons’ innovative work: “Without you, we certainly wouldn’t have come up with as good a solution!”
iDiversicons is celebrating our Five-Year Anniversary—and we’re still touching lives today, like with our Disability Pride Emoji. Maureen recently wrote, “My husband is a paraplegic and was dying to send his fishing buddy one of those icons! Thanks again.
