It’s clear that a picture paints a thousand words with more than two in five (42%) Australians saying they send emojis with most text messages or emails – 10% of people even send them to their boss!
Australian brand, Tech Toppers, has partnered with emoji®- The Iconic Brand, to launch a new range of tech-decorating stickers in celebration of the day, which allow Aussies to take their love of emoji® brand emojis to the next level by decorating their technology with the range. Combining the strengths of two brands – the demand for
personalising technology and the popularity of emoji® brand emojis – the Tech Toppers emoji® range is
fun and unique, which is exactly what the emoji® lifestyle brand stands for.
Sue Marks, Director of Tech Toppers, said, “Emojis are fun, cheeky, and help us to visually communicate with the touch of a button. We know Australians love them – they are part of our digital DNA – but why should it stop there?”
“We decided to get the emojis out of the technology, and onto the technology – allowing people to personalise their laptops, phones and desktops with their favourites. Our research uncovered that about one in five Australians wanted to decorate their technology with either the smiling face with sunglasses (18%), kiss face with heart (18%), unicorn (17%) and kiss mark (17%) – all of which are included in the range”, she said.
