Glasses, Emojis, and Challenging a Stigma


There's no question that emojis are officially a part of both our culture and the way we communicate today. As emojis have increased in popularity, there have also been many calls for increased inclusivity, such as the addition of emojis with different skin colors, adding female emojis with different jobs, and, now, adding even more emojis wearing glasses.

Head over to Medium to read what Specsavers and Chen say is lacking when it comes to emoji representation, and why adding more emojis in glasses could be such an important move.
