The Original Emojis Make Their Way Into the Museum of Modern Art

The Original Emojis Make Their Way Into the Museum of Modern Art

With the rise of emojis and their recent epitomization with pop culture, the New York Museum of Modern Art has just acquired the 176 original emojis for its permanent collection. Originally designed by Shigetaka Kurita of Japanese phone company NTT DOCOMO back in 1999, the set was ridiculously basic. They were only 12 by 12 in size, and super simple in design. The gallery was given the emojis by NTT DOCOMO just yesterday on October 26, and Paul Galloway, the museum’s design specialist, has already said that the designs are a timeless addition to the museum’s collection. If you’re interested in taking a peep at the display of emojis, the collection will be on display in the museum ‘s lobby until the end of the year.
