About the Event

Workshop description:

Visual Communication Design / Emojis as cultural communication and self expression

Originally meaning pictograph, the word emoji comes from Japanese e (?, "picture") + moji (??, "character"). Any resemblance to the English words "emotion" and "emoticon" is purely coincidental.

Emoji pictograms, now standardised ideogrammatic icons, originated on Japanese mobile phones in the late 1990s.

Contemporary emoji exist in various genres, including emotions, facial expressions, common objects, places and types of weather, animals etc.

During the workshop, participants will create emoji-like pictograms and short pictogram sentences, communicating about the country/culture they are coming from.

The end result will be a big, tapestry-like wall consisting of emoji visualisations utilising different colors and shapes, motifs and visual language taken from the culture of the countries of origin.

The workshop is open to all interested English speaking individuals
