What is an icon?


By definition an icon is described by the following:


  • a picture, image, or other representation
  • a sign or representation that stands for its object by virtue of a resemblance or analogy to it



We think its fair to say that Emojis have become the ?’KING’ of icons and are the most widely used and recognised form of visual language! We use Emojis in our WhatsApp, email and text conversations, add them as reactions ? and descriptions to content on Facebook, Instagram and YouTube and now Emojis are featured on thousands of products all over the ? world.




Considering the magnitude of the Emoji brand, we are absolutely ECSTATIC ? to share the news that My Icon Story has partnered with Joypixels!  We’ve now designed an official Emoji icon collection in our iconic My Icon Story outline style and added the icons to our library on myiconstory.com




Exclusive to My Icon Story, customers can now feature an Emoji icon on personalised My Icon Story prints! Whether you’re creating a gift for someone who ❤️ LOVES Emojis or the ? Smiling Face with Heart Eyes Emoji is the perfect icon to represent falling in love, we can’t wait to see customers start using the icons on their print designs.



Below are some ideas to inspire your designs and give examples if how you can use our Joypixels Emoji icons on your My Icon Story prints:
