FUN FACT: the only reason I found this out was because the current branding font for Mutant Standard is named after one of the EFF's founders and then I went down a brief absent-minded wikipedia browsing spree.
Feels a bit gross using it now, but it *is* a nice font. :|
Useful but depressing information about a prominent internet nonprofit, TL;DR Show more
- gets millions in corporate or corporate-aligned donors
- are only ever vocal on issues relating to governments, not corps
- lobbied against government oversight of ISP development in the 90's, helping to create the monopolistic hellscape americans enjoy today
- lobbied against a law that could have seriously set back the entire internet surveillance business model in 2004
among other shitty things

Since Mutant Standard is a very fuck Silicon Valley kind of thing, and because everyone who is into privacy and stuff sees this group floating around quite often online, you might want to know that the EFF is like, *really* bad and really really shouldn't be trusted.
@astraluma the build scripts don't include that stuff! I use a new build script that runs oxipng (on default settings) on the output afterwards (alongside a whole bunch of other things, including fonts). It's a long mess and isn't applicable for everyone so I didn't put it in the repo.
Same for the build files repo. That needs to be updated too.
The reference documents are currently outdated. They will be updated in the next few days!
0.4.0 introduces an evolution in the way Mutant Standard emoji are designed.
This updated style has brigter colours, enhanced depth and more details, while keeping the same beloved contrast and readability at small sizes.
Mutant Standard 0.4.0 is finally here!
- Fonts beta!
- An updated look with hundreds of emoji designs improved
- Lots of new emoji
- Text description data for the visually impaired
- Smaller files!
