National Saturday Club – Emojis

National Saturday Club is an education programme that links young people with professional designers, artists and architects. It complements curriculum and develops young people’s talents, life skills and confidence. It also gives them the opportunity to take part in workshops across the UK’s art and design universities on Saturday mornings, called ‘Masterclasses’.

We’ve run multiple Masterclasses and for this one we teamed up with graphics students at Sheffield Hallam University. Briefing them to design emojis: one that represents themselves and one that represents an emotion.

We started the workshop with an introduction to the history of emoji, followed by a ‘Crazy 8s’ exercise where the students quickly generated lots of ideas for their emoji designs on one sheet of paper with eight boxes. Next, they started to develop ideas at a smaller scale on 16×16 and 8×8 grids, understanding and learning about the importance of size and legibility. They looked at how colour applied to their designs afterwards and then finally digitised their emojis on the computer.

The emojis created during the Masterclass were so good that we fully digitised each student’s idea, which were available to download as pack on a project microsite we also made.
