The Standard in Handwritten Emoji


Kanmoji actually was not planned to exist. It was not well prepared at the beginning. When we were designing our Emoji Language : Emojigraphy , we had different concepts we need to test, whether the ideas were applicable or not, practical or not, can we polish it more.

We usually test it on our phone, because it has emoji keyboard integrated within. And as we put some more test with more different concepts, we started to have difficulties reading and writing Emoji characters quickly and consistently for brainstorming.

Its because sometime we had ideas or test problems in the middle of commuting, in the supermarket, at lunch, when watching TV, in the middle of an event or discussion, even when we wake up in the morning, where we need to jot down them quickly and continue with our activities.

We have difficulties when searching emojis, because we don't remember the name, so we prefer to write it, fast, in paper if possible.

Then we realize that emoji was created as a picture in online environment within software or apps, it is not intended for offline purposes from the beginning.

Thats when we notice the problem and realize we need some standard in Handwritten Emoji. We need Simplified Emoji now. We need to write clear and simple emoji fast. At that moment, Kanmoji was born.
