Memojis is a set of bespoke emojis designed for my life – my emotions, experiences, and silly obsessions. These personalized tiny pixels are for my own use in texts and apps through mobile.


Emojis have become a significant part of our digital conversations, but they don’t fully represent the range of our expressions or life experiences. As someone who often suffers from not being able to find adequate emojis, I decided to design a set of emojis for myself to communicate with friends. These bespoke emojis represent a wider spectrum of my real emotions and (un)exciting moments in life. They are also designed to share the same kind of flexibility as existing emojis, in which creative re-contexualization leads to a myriad of interesting meanings and interpretations.
