Emoji's with Diverse Disabilities In Time for Paralympics

Billions of emojis are sent every day on social media and on messaging services like Whatsapp. Despite ongoing efforts to make emojis more diverse with different skin tones and same sex couples, there is just one to represent disability – the international symbol for disability access.

In collaboration with World Emoji Day which is July 17th, SCOPE a U.K. disability organization has released a set of 18 emoji featuring people with disabilities and Paralympic sports.

Check out our emoji designs below. You can download the images here or visit SCOPE blog post for each individual emoji.
These aren’t proper emojis just yet, but you can still post the one that's just right for you. Alternatively, just share this blog post.
