Trade Me put out a request for a kiwi emoji design. They were highlighting that our national bird is missing from the selection of animals on the emoji keyboards, and were looking for a design to help them put together a proposal to get the kiwi added to emoji keyboards. #kiwiemoji
My approach was to go for the front-on style emoji to highlight the kiwi's beak. It is a simple vector design that has the 'cuteness' factor of animal emoji's, and would work on the small emoji scale whilst remaining distinguishable as a kiwi.
