Can Emoticons Help Convey Your Brand? This Team Nailed It!

I’m not really an emoji guy. Frankly I’m still impressed by the variety and creativity in emoticons. But when I got my iPhone 6 and the emoji were just sitting there waiting to be used – I gave in.

I like to combine them in goofy messages for my kids. (Chicken + toilet + fire + warning sign = “There’s chicken on fire in the bathroom! Danger!!” The kids think this is very funny.)

Then one day while I was using some emoji when texting a friend, the idea of using them as a corporate logo popped into my head and this cartoon popped back out.

I actually did a fair amount of research to get everything to look right – but now I can write off my iPhone 6 – WOOT WOOT!
