Unicode 9.0: Even more characters for adoption!
We’ve been delighted to see others in the type community adding their names in support of the Unicode Consortium’s Adopt-A-Character campaign. With the recent release of version 9.0 of the Unicode standard, there are 7,500 new characters available to claim — including 72 new emoji.
We’re proud supporters of the non-profit organization, and feel it’s important for those of us who rely so much on type to throw some weight behind the digital infrastructure that supports modern communications.
Sponsorships are available starting at $100 for bronze — and up to $5,000 for the Gold-level sponsorship. Sponsors get their names listed on the Unicode website and receive custom digital badges designed by our own Jake Giltsoff.
Congrats to Unicode on the new version release — and our thanks for all you do.
