I can't think of a single person that I talk to on whatsapp or the other messaging apps that don't use emojis. Did you ever wonder what they would look like in real life?
Designer Liza Nelson did and created a tumblr to represent what emojis would look like in real life. She writes on the site, "Emojis mean everything and they mean nothing at the same time. They're completely personal and completely universal. They're really quite stupid. And they're the best thing that ever happened to our generation. They deserve to be observed and worshipped individually. By finding, posing and sculpting emojis in real life, I've created a set of shrines to the individual charaters. Because someone had to do it."
What do you think? Are these real life emojis just as you imagined? Would you still use emojis if they were actually represented in real life? Some of my favourites above. Check out her tumblr to see all her designs. You can order prints too if you are an emoji Geek!
