Description

We're an Emoji Foundation. Its all about Emoji 👀❤😎👗💰💕.

History

Early history

The Emoji Foundation was founded in 2013 by Niki Selken👩🏻‍💻 , with the goal of examining the relationship between Emoji, culture, and the written word. The Emoji Dictionary, Emoji Foundation’s flagship project, is the first crowdsourced Emoji resource on the web. Similar to Wikipedia, it relies on the community to share, build and define Emoji previously shrouded in mystery. The Emoji Dictionary has received over 1 million visitors since Jan 2017 alone.

The Founder

As the creator of Emoji Dictionary, and EmojiFlower VR, Niki’s work focuses around storytelling, games, and interaction design. She is a resident artist and creative code teacher at Gray Area Foundation for the Arts, where she researches VR and AR. Her game, Find Maria Rivera was exhibited and selected as an Award Finalist at Indiecade 2015. In 2016 she was selected as a Kill Screen game design scholar and Parsons E-Lab fellow for her Augmented Reality platform, Wayscape. Niki attributes her intuitive understanding of the translation and meaning of Emoji to her extensive Japanese stationery collection and study of Japanese Butoh and Noh theater. When she is not expanding her Emoji Empire, Niki enjoys designing and playing games, karaoke and of course, texting Emoji
