33 Emoji Innovations

From Rejected Emoji Blogs to Cult Film Emojis

— July 28, 2014 — Pop Culture
Emoji innovations have taken the world by storm. No longer content with using them as playful additions to texting conversations, the Internet has included them in everything from album art to apparel.

For instance, if you're unsatisfied with the current offerings, you can take the craze one step further by creating your own custom emojis with the Imogi app. Meanwhile, if you're looking for a laugh, you can browse Funny or Die's collection of rejected emoji icons that we have unfairly been denied -- the favorite being an emoticon version of Pharell's now-iconic hat, obviously.

Those with a passion for fashion can let others know how they're feeling without even opening their mouths by donning an emoji tank or carrying an emoji tote.
