Emoji 20th anniversary, important thing to talk about but it's not pleasant.
As we approach emoji's 20th anniversary, it's super important to recognise that in a nutshell, #emoji (as presented to us by tech companies) so far has been:
- a form of language imperialism
- a corporate cooption of digital graphical language, a shit excuse to sell phones each year
- an attempt to standardise visual communication globally which is wrong on so many levels
- is incredibly normative
Another cute set of #emoji commissions, this time for Otterface!
Dzuk. Big gay orc, crushing normativity with emojos.
