The newest trend in social media – SAY it with a celebrity emoji!
SAY it with a celebrity emoji!
By Jack Barnes
As Kim Kardashian breaks the Apple app store with the release of her new kimojis, we look at what other influencers have launched emojis, how they are created and the company behind them.
Most recently, Ty Hunter, celebrity stylist and personal stylist to Beyonce, launched his photo emoji app, which was an idea brough to fruition by Intro Media’s Johnny Nunez and Nicholas Semkiw. The unique emojis featuring Ty Hunter himself, feature a span of emotions from “Try Again boo boo” to “Tyrrific.”
Now let’s compare – While other emoji solutions pass the cost on to the consumer by charging them a download fee (The Kimoji download is $1.99), Intro Media and its partners have a comprehensive add network built into the system that seamlessly partners up celebrities with brands willing to advertise on the emoji keyboard. This allows Intro Media and the celebrity to offer the keyboard for free to the user.
Another benefit of partnering with Intro Media is that celebrity photographer Johnny Nunez (Co-Founder of Intro Media) shoots the content himself. You can then select the images you are satisfied with and begin to create great sayings or quotes that coincide with the expressions in your image. The celebrity emoji will definitely be the new form of quick communication and recognition on social media – a way to express an emotion with an image and less words that can sometimes be misconstrued.
The system requirements are iOS 8.0 or later; compatible with iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch are simular for both emoji apps, simple to download and start using with iMessage, WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, and email.
So after Kim Kardashina broke the internet yet again and Ty Hunter definitely impacted it without the use of a thong, breasts, and a pair of Yeezy’s ofcourse, will this be the new way for celebrities and influencers to maintain a strong presence on social media. Intro Media is currently working with actor, singer-songwriter, and record producer, Tristin Paul Mack Wilds for the next celebrity emoji app. Wilds who is featured in the Adele’s music video Hello and staring in the upcoming VH1 movie “The Breaks” will definitely bring some amazing energy into the celebrity emoji app lane and we look forward to who will be next.
