Egymoji is a project that is designed to improve communication within the Egyptian culture by creating illustrated designs in the form of the emojis. These emojis depict popular elements from the daily Egyptian vernacular in an effort to diversify the inclusion of the Arab World within the world of digital communication. By seeking inspiration from the street culture, social media presence, and the daily habits of Egyptians, Egymoji was wireframed, designed, and then implemented into an iOS application that eases the process of texting culturally-relevant emojis to friends. This collection can not only contribute to the diversification of emojis, but it can also further improve visual communication in a country with little written rules, high illiteracy rates, and an incredible visual culture.
