Digital Hieroglyphics Evolving the World Over

Elements of design simplicity were originally intended to facilitate understanding in differing languages, but now have exploded into exercises in expression with communications both complex and whimsical.

Emojis -- as other elements of language -- need to be understandable across computer languages, and it is the work of a Unicode Committee of computer scientists and linguists to select which designs to include in the global lexicon.

The film chronicles the presentations of new emojis for inclusion by several groups and individuals, each earnest and heartwarming in its own right.

Strongly recommend this documentary for anyone interested in design, creativity and communication. Pretty much for everybody, come to think of it.
