If you feel like you’ve been spending too much time putting your Edmonton-related jokes/frustrations/thoughts into words, there is now a solution for you.
Sandra Sperounes and Lucas Timmons are fusing two things that Edmontonians love: Edmonton (duh) and emojis--aptly and wittily named, EDMOjis. This app will be launched around mid-December i.e. very soon. And will be the perfect solution to encapsulate all of our thoughts about the city via a fun, visual outlet.
Their Indiegogo campaign successfully reached (and exceeded) their monetary goal in just 3 days! So we can only assume how incredibly popular this is going to be once available.
So in about a month, you will be able to creatively showcase your YEG pride while you text. They are hoping to have 60 emojis available by the time of the launch. And you can expect to see hilarious and uniquely Edmontonian references i.e. the “We done bitches” sign that appeared upon the completion of the Anthony Henday Drive ?
Some EDMOjis still under consideration include a pothole, a fast and a slow LRT, etc. (all of which are options that are painfully relevant to our everyday text convos).
You will certainly want to keep your eyes peeled for the launch of this new app ?
