Springfield Emojis is very proud to announce that we will be working with Illinois National Bank! INB will now have their own category featured on the SPFLD Emojis app where you can find information on some of their services, community involvement, stories on bank employees, and some other fun emojis to be announced at a later date :) We have truly enjoyed getting to know more about INB and we're looking forward to working with them to find new ways to get the word out about who they are. Stay tuned :)
Governor Bruce Rauner was recently photographed rollerblading through Millenium Park in Chicago and Springfield Emojis thought that deserved a little more attention :) Regardless of your politics, there is something admirable about a guy of Gov. Rauner's position who is willing to strap on some roller blades and take to the street. No word on the level of security or if they were in fact blading in the famous Flying V popularized by the movie The Mighty Ducks....but this is how we wish it would have looked :) You can find more about this story on Rich Miller's Capitol Fax website.
It appears as though OJ Simpson will be a free man come October. Hide yo kids, hide yo wife, the Juice....is loose. Pretty sure there aren't many people left in the "OJ is innocent" camp, but for good or bad our justice system has decided that OJ is ready to be a contributing member of society and for his sake we hope that is true. Everyone remembers where they were when that verdict was read and how split our society was on the verdict. Whelp, it's safe to say that most people think he killed those people now, but he will never be tried for those murders again...so let's hope he doesn't commit any more. Sometimes, all you can do is laugh :) Springfield Emojis created an image to commemorate the event. It's great for letting your friends know that you aren't interested. You're out....like OJ!
Crime is an unfortunate part of life, and we all tolerate a certain amount as unavoidable....but pepper spraying a baby?! Sounds crazy but that is exactly what happened at White Oaks mall here in Springfield Illinois and SPFLD Emojis made an emoji to cover the story. Tatayna McGrone and Aaliyha Hampton are accused of attacking and pepper spraying a young family in May and some of the pepper spray they allegedly used hit a baby. Not sure what could have been done to prevent this and we know the Springfield Police Department is working hard but geesh....what's the world coming to?! Fortunately the baby was ok and the people who did it were apprehended.
