In episode 3 of Wireframe, we dig into the origin story of how emoji became an essential part of our communication (and this particular pictogram occupies quite an auspicious place in our collective imagination).
We talk to the designers behind the iconic emoji language, explore its linguistic evolution and impact, and discover the steps (and missteps) emoji design took before the icons found their way to our screens.
