The original emoji
These are the original Japanese emoji (1997) that created a new visual language and changed global electronic communication ever since. It is incredible how much more impact these emoji have had when compared to e.g. Microsoft Wingdings (1990) and Zapf Dingbats (1978). I suspect the emoji were a solution to a much bigger problem than just providing symbols: Efficient communication on low-resolution cell phones with only numeric keyboards.
