Meet your 2015 mayoral candidates’ emoji: Williams, Kenney, Abraham, Diaz, Oliver and Street get animated



 emojis here at Billy Penn. You’ve seen us live-emoji-tweet everything from debates to Gov. Tom Wolf’s inauguration. And, as a public service, we felt like we’d add a little something to the 2015 race for mayor of Philadelphia.

So we asked our fabulous designer, Jayna Wallace, to turn the candidates into their own emoji.

Without further ado: The 2015 Mayoral Emoji.

Nelson Diaz:


Jim Kenney:


Doug Oliver:
