1000 Emoji Project

1000 Emojis designed for LINE. Art direction by Jenny Yoo.

The LINE emoji project was an enormous assignment to create 1000 new emoji designs for social messaging app LINE. 

The undertaking was HUGE - I was tasked with creating 1000 emojis, in just 10 weeks! In order to meet that deadline I had to supply 100 illustrations per week! 

This meant that for the best part of 3 months I was working 18 hours a day, 7 days a week. I actually watched the seasons pass from winter to spring outside my window and even warped the nail out of shape on my drawing finger due to holding a pen for so long each day!

Long working hours aside, this project was incredibly exciting to be a part of and I am extremely pleased with the outcome. I feel proud that so many people are using my drawings to communicate with one another - it’s quite a surreal thought actually!

If you would like to check the emoji out and use them for yourself just download the app for free, it’s available on all smartphones (iPhone, Android, Windows Phone, Blackberry, Nokia)

If you decide to do so add me on LINE! My LINE I.D is - danwoodger
