Morph emoji series, by Aardman

Animation studio Aardman has revealed a series of emojis for iPhone, which are based on the studio’s character Morph to celebrate its 40th birthday.

Aardman co-founder Peter Lord sculpted the emojjis by hand using modelling clay, then used motion graphics and animations to bring them to life.

They cover various emotive face emojis, to hand gesture ones – and the ever popular poo emoji.

Lord says of his creations: “Morph has a lovely round face and he does great expressions. He really is like a living emoji. They’ve worked out really funny and charming.”

The Morph emoji sticker pack is available to download now for free from the App Store.
