Mac and cheese is a food that many people love. As macaroni lover myself, want to express that love through emojis. Simple as that. It is not as simple to actually make this happen, though. That’s why I need you.

Your signature could help people express themselves in new ways they could never imagine. Love mac and cheese? Send the emoji to your friends. Maybe your friends don’t like mac and cheese. They can use the mac and cheese emoji to express that, too. A mac and cheese emoji will widen our digital vocabulary and strengthen our communicative ability, which will allow us to connect and become closer as social beings.

You may be asking, why specifically a mac and cheese emoji? To answer that, I’d like to look at a few existing apple emojis. Emojis as simple as a smiley face aren’t the color of real skin tones. That’s due to one of the many guidelines that go into making an emoji, and one of those is, as the Unicode guidelines for emojis would put it, “neutrality” (Mark Davis, Peter Edburg, Unicode® Technical Standard #51)^1.

The term “neutrality” refers to it’s relatability to all people; it does not exclude any race, religion, sexuality, or group of people in general. A mac and cheese emoji is completely neutral. Emoji makers want to make their emojis inclusive. There’s no discrimination when it comes to make and cheese. If anything, mac and cheese brings people together. Your signature can be proof of that.

If you love, hate, or don’t mind mac and cheese, you should be able to express that through an emoji. Your signature helps more than you know :)
