&Walsh, the design agency launched by famed designer Jessica Walsh last year, has created a set of emojis for these famously uncertain times.

As the &Walsh team explains on its blog, the agency hoped to create an emoji suite out of frustration with current options and “inspired by the unique experiences we go through as designers, and people living through 2020.”

It’s another reminder that 2020 really has separated life into a “before” and “after,” even when it comes to emojis.

Of course, there’s a lot to appreciate here for non-designers, with reflections of the peculiar realities of life under social distancing guidelines.
