Jolly? Excited? Joyful? What better way to share your holiday spirit this year than with custom emojis! We want to share the fun of creating unique emojis with you this season, so every day for #HolidayEmojiWeek, we’ll unveil a new tutorial that shows you how to create a different, personalized emoji.

Believe it or not, Illustrator CC makes it super simple and fun. It’s just a simple two-step process — you draw the face, and then dress it up with a variety of facial expressions from Illustrator.

Here’s what you’ll learn throughout the week. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter during #HolidayEmojiWeek to get the tutorials and assets every day to create your own emoji!

Rudy the Reindeer
Rudy is Rudolph’s younger brother. He’s always looked up to his brother, and one day hopes to get his name in history books, too — and hopefully join in a few reindeer games!

Tuesday, Dec 12

Mochi the Snowman
Mochi is a soft cuddly snowman made of the the first snows of winter, with soft powdery cheeks and eyes that sparkle with the iridescence of a diamond.

Wednesday, Dec 13

Pearl the Snowflake
Pearl is a unique little snowflake. She loves long walks on the beach — the North Pole’s icy beach, that is — and her favorite subject is math. She’s freakishly good at fractals!

Thursday, Dec 14

Holly the Jolly Holly
Holly is sweet but can be a little bit bitter as well. People that don’t know her well think that she’s a berry, but she’s really a drupe.

Sir Hopsalot the Penguin
Sir Hopsalot is a cheeky little penguin. He can’t fly, but he makes up for that with his vivacious dances.
