A few weeks ago, I wrote a blog about the possibility of Twitter using emojis as the new keyword. Remember my hamburger-palooza example? If not, you can refresh your memory here. Anyways, the reason I’m talking about emojis again is because Sunday, July 17 is World Emoji Day [INSERT CELEBRATORY EMOJIS HERE]!
Though every day might feel like World Emoji Day, Sunday is the actual holiday that celebrates Shigetaka Kurita’s big idea. In case you didn’t know, Kurita is the designer of the first emoji for mobile phones. He’s the guy that came up with 176 12×12 images that would eventually become the foundation of the emojis that we’ve come to know, love and overuse.
So, to celebrate, we got a little creative here at Flying Cork.
To showcase our appreciation and love for emojis, we decided to create an emoji questionnaire that we sent around to the Flying Cork team to complete.
This wasn’t just any questionnaire! Aside from a few easy questions, we upped the ante and put our team’s creativity to the test by asking them to create an emoji masterpiece!
Developers, managers, and coordinators tested their emoji-using skills and came up with some pretty awesome stuff.
Rather than me talk about it, let me show you! Without further ado, I present to you, World Emoji Day the Flying Cork way.
