Slowly but surely, emoji are taking over the world. Who needs to use words when tiny images will do just fine? While they're typically used for communication, London-based artist and designer Sam Jacob decided to build a city out of emoji as an exploration of the question: "what if by using pictures to augment the ways we describe places and landscapes we are also making places and landscapes?" High-minded philosophical questions aside, his design for Emojiopolis is a pretty unique and delightful piece of art.
I'm particularly a fan of the little hill of stacked buildings — anyone who lives in San Francisco would feel right at home there.
