A picture can be worth a thousand words — one of the reasons why those little yellow faces and symbols have become so popular in text messages and Instagram posts. The right expression or combination of icons can be perfect for conveying your emotion or what’s on your mind. However when it comes to farm-related emojis, the default selection on most phones has been pretty thin. Until now.
Winnipeg-based Think Shift Advertising has just released its Farmoji sticker pack for iOS, with over 200 ag-inspired emojis reflecting life on North American farms.
“In our agency work, we connect with a lot of audiences in agriculture and find that sometimes the rural way of life gets passed over in tech and mainstream media,” says Alex Varricchio, VP Creative Product at Think Shift. “When Apple recently introduced stickers, we thought we’d honour our rural roots and launch a farm-inspired set.”
There are over 95 farmer face options, along with a wide selection of livestock, crops and farm equipment — even emojis for plaid shirts and a farmer’s tan (see left).
You can send Farmoji stickers in iMessages in Apple’s latest iOS. The free sticker pack is available in the App Store and at farmojistickers.com.
