Emojis aren't a new concept; cultures have used various forms of pictograms as a form of human expression for centuries. Hieroglyphics, for example, were used by the ancient Egyptians to record their stories and history.
The modern Emoji can be traced back to chatrooms in the 1990s when primitive emojis such as :) to indicate a smile or ;) to punctuate a joke or sarcastic jab were used in conversations.
The originator of today's emojis, however, is Shigetaka Kurita, a Japanese designer.
One hundred seventy-six emojis for mobile phones and pagers were released by NTT DOCOMO in Japan in 1999.
The word "emoji" is formed from the combination of the Japanese words for "picture" and "letter." It's purely coincidental that "emoji" sounds like it was derived from the English word "emotion."
Kurita created the first emoji library by combining Japanese graphic novels, the Zapf Dingbats typeface, illustrations, and pictograms.
The pixelated designs that eventually gave way to today's vast emoji database can be seen at the Museum of Modern Art.
For the first time, Oxford Dictionaries named an emoji its "Word of the Year" in 2015. The "Face with Tears of Joy" emoji earned the title because it was the most used Emoji worldwide. According to the dictionary, the word emoji saw a significant increase in use that year.
Today, there are over 3,000 emojis, including 117 new emojis introduced in 2020. A toothbrush, a green bell pepper, people hugging, bubble tea, a Transgender flag, a black cat, and other amazing new Emojis.
