Mojis are custom built lottie emoji icon animation things, designed for you, to bring more life, expression and fun to your apps. Mojis are built using Lottie's library and exported as JSON files, for you to easily drop into your code. Learn more on how they're built 😊
☝️ Who are Mojis for?
Mojis are designed for anyone who needs animated and interactive icons to bring life, character and expression to their app or website. Mobile apps, Web apps, E-Commerce Website, Watch App, Microwave App, Fridge App, Car App? You name it.
🤷 What's a Lottie?
Lottie is a library built by Airbnb, for Android, iOS, Web, and Windows that parses Adobe After Effects animations exported as json with Bodymovin and renders them natively, allowing you to manipulate them easily.
Yes actually! With a lottie color editor like Lottiefiles Editor, you can change the colors of your Moji icon to better fit your brand. You can remove the gradients if you fancy more of a flat design, for example.
And while you can't alter the design or animation of the icon itself, you can re-time it or have it interact with the user with code. Check the Lottie library to see what you can do with your platform and stay up to date.
🧐 Why $19 ? Why not free?
A big factor in bringing Moji to life is to make well-designed and animated icons accessible to everyone. Animation is a very time consuming practice, and often comes with a hefty price point.
In my last three years as a UX motion designer, a custom animated icon would come close to costing a minimum of $300 a piece. Add to that how many hours to factor in, often taking a few iterations to find the right brand design fit. Many entrepreneurs and startup developers don't have the luxury of an unlimited budget.
But I believe the one's with fresh new ideas should get their hands on well-designed and fun animations they need. And that's how Moji came to being.
So uh... why not give them for free? Same arguments there. It takes many hours of work to get a design just right, and many, many more to get the animation feeling right.
With each dollar you put in, you're helping support Moji grow so it can serve you better in the future 🙏🤗
