Where words fall short, there are emojis. Emojis have quickly become an integral part of digital communication and pop culture—and Slack users have it especially good with the ability to add custom emojis to fit any situation their team encounters. But let’s take it a step further.
Our friend and phenomenal illustrator Rocky Roark teamed up with InVision to create 25 custom Slack emojis just for design teams. We kept them simple with our classic InVision pink so they can shine in all their 128×128 glory.
